Bust-A-Move Pocket is a must have if you own a Neo Geo Pocket. When you first put the 1 ¾ x 2-¼ inch cartridge into the Neo Geo Pocket and turn the system on you're greeted with the classic Taito logo screen. When you push a button you enter the menu and can choose from 3 different modes of play and an option menu.

The object of the game is to pop all of the bubbles before the ceiling that's holding the bubbles comes down and one of them passes through the “death line”. The first mode of game play is Puzzle mode. In puzzle mode you play 99 different levels. Some of the levels are easy and you can pass them in under one second others can take up to two or three minutes.

Versus CPU is the second mode of game play. In here you challenge eight different CPU opponents in their own play field at eight different difficulty levels (selectable in the options menu). Once you beat a character you are pronounced “King” of that opponent. Once you defeat all the CPU characters you pass the game.

Next is Survivor play. Here you play continually until you lose. For whatever number of bubbles you break that's how many points it gives you, the more points you have the closer you get to rank number one. As each puzzle is solved, successive stages become more difficult.

In the option menu you can change the game's difficulty level up to level 8, change the number of VS. Rounds, listen to all of the game music set the auto power off to on or off and clear the high score and levels completed data.

I thoroughly enjoyed this game. I have passed single play twice beating all of my high scores and all of Icebro's :) The VS CPU play is also very fun to play again and again on higher difficulty levels and more, or less number of rounds. Survivor is also challenging to play again and try to get the number one rank.

Overall this game rocks. If you liked the arcade and you own a Neo Geo Pocket, you will love this game.
