Bubble-Bursting Fun For All Ages
With the return of your 2 favorite dinosaurs, Bob and Bub, the popular
bust-A-Move series continues offering fast paced and easy to play
bubble-bursting fun for all ages!
The object of Bust-A-Move 4 is to shoot colored bubbles into clusters of
other bubbles. When a bubble makes contact with two or more bubbles of the same
color, they burst. Burst all the bubbles before they get too low and you have
completed the round. Sound easy?? That's exactly what Bob, Bub and all their
new friends were hoping you would say!
2-player head-to-head mode allows for breathtaking bubble duels
over the Internet or split-screen on one computer.

and story modes.

bubbles attached to each anchor block will cause the heavier side to fall and
the lighter side to rise.

Unfortunately, I was immediately stumped when I was directed to push the
'start' button. After pressing a number of keys and clicking the mouse, I had
to look through the User Guide to find out which keys to use during play.
Surprisingly, the 'escape' key is used as the 'start' button. The User Guide
recommends using an 8-button game pad for play, and I'm sure this game would be
much easier to play with one. But since I don't own one, I had to struggle
through learning which keys to use for what (keep that User Guide open to page
4 as you learn to play). This was frustrating at first and made play almost
impossible for my 6-year-old who could not remember which keys to use. However,
my 9-year-old learned to play quicker than I did, and was delighted with the
