    Overall, New Bust-A-Move offers around 2-3 hours of puzzle action in the adventure mode. But then there's always the endless mode too, which offers up the more classic style gameplay.

    A sound game indeed. While it is a little easy for Bust-A-Move veterans thanks to the huge arrow directing your aim, it still provides you with just what you want and the addition of boss battles and the Jump Shot ability is bound to enthral fans.

    Refines the gameplay of the Bust-A-Move titles while adding a few new twists to make this a great handheld version of the series.

    Frustrations aside, if you're looking for a good Match-3 puzzle, invite Bub and Bob back into your life. Just don't let their wide, happy smiles fool you into letting them look deeply into your soul: they eat dreams.

    New Puzzle Bobble adds just enough gameplay gimmicks to freshen up its well-worn bubble-matching gameplay.

    New Bust-a-Move has all the makings of an excellent chapter in the long-running series. It just needs a little tweaking to clean up the controls.

    Overall, the game has a lot of new material, and has potential to be good, although it is super annoying having to deal with that red arrow. Until they remove that my advice is to stay clear and go with the original.
