Ultra Bust-A-Move

The bubble-popping Bust-A-Move series makes its way to the Xbox with a new cast of cutesy characters and a variety of new game modes. It also introduces online multiplayer to the series.


Ultra Bust-A-Move (known in Japan as Ultra Puzzle Bobble) is a tile-matching puzzle game developed by Taito and published by Majesco for the Xbox in North America on November 4, 2004, followed by a release in Japan (by Taito on January 27, 2005) and Europe (by 505 Game Street on May 19, 2006).

The seventh main entry in the Bust-A-Move series, Ultra Bust-A-Move is known for its variety of game modes, including online multiplayer (the first in the series to do so) via Xbox Live.

The game later received a pseudo-sequel for the PlayStation Portable as Bust-A-Move Deluxe. Known as Ultra Puzzle Bobble Pocket in Japan (and also the sequel to Puzzle Bobble Pocket), this game includes all the new game modes from Ultra Bust-A-Move while including online multiplayer.
