Puzzle Bobble / Bust-a-Move Puzzle Bobble (also known in certain countries as Bust-a-Move) is a 1994 arcade puzzle game (for 1 or 2 players) created by Taito and contains elements of Sega's Columns and Atari's Breakout. It is a relatively simple game based on Taito's popular 1986 arcade game Bubble Bobble, featuring characters and themes from the original. The game's characteristically "cute" Japanese animation and music, along with its well-balanced mechanics and level design, proved successful in arcades and spawned several sequels.
