Summary

Quite fun, but doesn't live up to Bubble Bobble.

The Good

In fact, Puzzle Bobble doesn't have much to do with the original game besides the name, the monster and the bubbles. While the original Bubble Bobble was a sort of a puzzle game, Puzzle Bobble is an eccentric Columns. Regardless, it's still quite fun for a while, as a typical "minesweeper"-esque time waster.

In short: simple graphics and sound that get the job done and fun gameplay, at least for a while.

The Bad

It wears out fast and I doubt you'll play it again after it does. It isn't nearly as addictive as the original, and just builds on the franchise (unfortunate, because personally I'd expect anything BB to be great).

The Bottom Line

A pretty fun game for a little while; play it and you'll see what I mean.
