Puzzle Bobble, originally released in the US as Bust-A-Move is a traditional puzzle style game that is similar to Tetris. The object of the game is to fire bubbles at the ceiling in an attempt to link three or more bubbles of the same color. When three or more bubbles of the same color are linked, they disappear. The idea behind Puzzle Bobble is to make the entire mass of bubbles stuck to the ceiling disappear and then move on to the next level. When three or more bubbles of the same color disappear, sometimes sections of the bubble mass will fall and be eliminated.

Two tiny dinosaurs operate the bubble cannon. Bubbles can bounce off of side walls or can be shot straight into the bubble mass overhead. The player does little to control the dinosaurs apart from aiming the bubble cannon.

Players advance to the next level by destroying the bubble mass. If the bubble mass manages to reach the ground, the game is over. ~ All Game Guide
