Bust a Move is a great clone of the original game. The graphics are good, and it's very fast. The controls seem a bit fast for me, though, and it's rather large. Other than that, it's a great game.

Graphics: 10/10

Controls: 8/10

Speed: 10/10

Overall: 9/10

“Bust a Move” is a very good clone of the PC game where you shoot different colored/patterned balls and try to match up three or more to make them fall away.

Graphics: 9/10 - About as good as you could expect them to be; the different types of balls are easily recognizable.
Playability: 7/10 - Somewhat addicting, but the beginning and ending sequences, where it's like paint melting away, are somewhat annoying.
Overall: 8/10 - Good, depending on how much you like this game.

One word: excellent. “Bust a Move” is one of the best games I have played on a TI calculator. The animated screenshot is an understatement of the speed. Different balls are easy to distinguish and aiming is very quick. One suggestion I have is to remove the melting wax effect, make it quicker, or allow [2nd] to skip as well (I usually have to bring my hand down to hit enter).

Overall - 10/10

“Bust a Move” is a superb game that is similar in game play to “Snood” in that you have to shoot a ball that bounces around and wipes out similar balls of the same pattern. One of the really great aspects of this game, besides game play, is the graphics. It is relatively easy to distinguish between the different ball types. The one thing that I don't like about “Bust a Move” is the “melting wax” effect, but that can easily be skipped by pressing [Enter].

Overall: 9/10

"Bust A Move" was great. It's calculator counterpart is arguably just as fantastic. I play this game all the time and it never gets boring. It is always entertaining. It's an EXCELLENT port.

"Bust a Move" has INCREDIBLE graphics. I especially love the melt effect the title screen has! The in-game graphics are true to the arcade game and are very appropriate. I would seriously say that this game has some of the best graphics of any game in the TI Community (for the 83+, of course).

Like I stated before, I play this game all the time. It's simple, yet addictive. You just match up the colors of the spheres. The patterns are very obvious and easy to see. "Bust A Move" provides for level play and random play. Something for everyone! :)

You WILL become addicted to this game. You won't set it down for days. It will become your favorite companion in the classroom. Screw Calculus. You want "Bust A Move"!!! It doesn't take up a whole lot of space on your calc, and it provides for weeks of entertainment!

This game is easy to control and easy to play. The directions are not hard to follow. Especially if you're already familiar with the game. There is no in-game help, however. :(

Download this now! It'll be worth it!

"Bust A Move" receives a 9/10!!! :)
