  • Summary: (Currently available in the UK/EU/JPN only; also know as "Puzzle Bobble Pocket" and "Ultra Bust-A-Move Pocket") BAM ghost is one of the best versions of this game game for his spooky and funny environment and above all for his several game modes. You can play a funny and creative variation of the classic bust a move game, followed by your favorite characters (who forgot "the ghost whale" from Bubble Bobble?) or by one friend wireless. Play screen that tilts due to the "weight" of bubbles or "mix‘em up" colors in a series of stages where colours changes all of a suddenand many others. [505 GameStreet] Expand

  1. Sweet and simple. It might be old-fashioned but it's as addictive as it's ever been. [June 2006, p.70]
  2. This colorful conundrum is worth a look if you like your gaming in bite-size bits. It'll become monotonous eventually, but for a while it's more addictive than jam doughnuts. [June 2006, p.81]
  3. It might not push the capabilities of the PSP, but it’ll still be ‘that’ game you constantly come back to.
  4. The whole game just sticks far too rigidly to the over-worn gameplay of the originals. Without much of an effort to harness the PSP’s power or even stretch for a physics-based dynamic, it’s really surprising that this isn’t a straight-to-budget title.

    Although PBP sports no new additives or flavourings, it rehashes the old ingredients successfully enough, for the most part. [JPN Import]
  6. If you've always hankered after a handheld version of one of the best puzzlers there's ever been, then this is a serviceable port that does the job, but just be aware that you'll probably want to skip over the new modes very quickly.
  7. Behind the new name and smattering of fresh features rests a creaky old game that can't compete against its obviously-better-in-every-department rival. [Apr 2006, p.109]
