Classic Bust-A-Move match-three puzzler returns in King-like fashion

Classic Bust-A-Move match-three puzzler returns in King-like fashion

Pocket Gaming

Bust-A-Move aka Puzzle Bobble, the popular match-three puzzle game based on Taito's original Bubble Bobble action platformer, is back on iOS in the form of Bust-A-Move Islands.

Basically, although it's developed by Gumi, Bust-A-Move Islands is a King-ified version of the eponymous iconic arcade game. Specifically, it features elements that are recognized staples of King's casual mobile games, most notably level- and energy-based progression.

Bust-A-Move Islands is much like King's Bubble Witch Saga — which is a rather weird thing to say, considering that Bubble Witch Saga is “inspired” by Bust-A-Move in the first place.

Anyway, Bust-A-Move Islands has you helping the classic unwitting-dragon duo of Bub and Bob as they shoot and burst bubbles through more than 200 puzzles across a series of fantasy islands.

You can enjoy the game in single-player mode. Or you can connect to Facebook for a more social gaming experience, including the ability to play and compare scores with your friends.

Bust-A-Move Islands is available now on the App Store as a free-to-play game for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

If you've been missing Bub and Bob, but don't mind reuniting with them in a King-style setting, you'll want to check out Bust-A-Move Islands.
