About Puzzle Bobble

Puzzle Bobble (a.k.a. Bust-A-Move) is an action-puzzle game where the brothers Bub and Bob, who have been transformed into bubble dragons by a wizard’s spell, search for a way to turn back into human form in a bubble-bursting adventure. The classic gameplay formula is simple but addictive: using various items and gimmicks, connect three or more bubbles of the same colour to remove them from the field and progress. A spin off from the 1986 arcade hit Bubble Bobble, which celebrates its 35th anniversary this year, Bust-A-Move/Puzzle Bobble has seen over 20 series titles across countless platforms since its 1994 debut. As sole owners of Bubble Bobble and Puzzle Bobble’s worldwide IP and copyrights, Taito will continue to expand both properties going forward.
