This is the port of the well-known SNES game Puzzle Bobble. It was known as Bust-A-Move on the PSX later on. This PC version is an unofficial port using thesame tiles and graphics from the original SNES game.
Gameplay is lush, I can't praise this more. The ease of which you control the cannon supersedes even the original. There are multiple modes. Standard mode, where you progress from level 1 to the last level, where you get to fight with a big bad guy (and remember people, this is a puzzle game.
So what's the game about anyway? Ah, okay, good question. I just realized not anyone may know the original. Well, here's the lowdown. Bubble and Bobble, two cute little dragon-like creatures, have control over a cannon. One puts a ball into it and the other blows the cannon making it fire (it's an air-driven cannon :). If two or more balls of thesame colour are hit by the ball you shoot, and have thesame colour, they disappear. Easy? May seem so, but there's a catch. Sometimes, yes, sometimes, the ceiling drops a bit, making it important to make the smallest amount of mistakes possible. Secondly, you only have a limited amount of time to think before the cannon fires by itself (meaning that it goes wherever the cannon is aimed at at that moment).
I'd say that this is just another one of those little games you get, play very intensely for awhile, forget it for awhile, and yet again play it a long time later after. Oh, and it's one of those games you don't delete... It's one of those you find, when you're digging out your old harddrive... So I'd say try it ;)
Bust-A-Move is an excellent and very faithful fanmade reproduction of Puzzle Bobble, Taito's classic competitive puzzle game based on Bubble Bobble characters that never made it to the PC. The game is essentially a good Tetris clone: instead of falling blocks, you shoot color bubbles from the ground up. Get the bubbles with the same color in line to make them disappear. As with Taito's original console classic, the game is most fun against another player in a split-screen 2-player mode, although the computer player puts up a decent fight. The game is easy to learn, tough to master, and very addictive. If you enjoy Tetris-style games and haven't played Puzzle Bobble, Bust-A-Move is an excellent freeware gem that is well worth a look, and ranks as one of the most faithful fanmade games ever made.
