A lot of fun, but very grindy


This game will be fun for fans of the bust a move franchise. There are lots of levels to keep you playing and tons of characters/special items to unlock for use in game. The main problem is earning coins. There seem to be about 30 characters to unlock and in order to unlock a premium character at random you must spend 30,000 coins(which takes quite a bit of time to gain. The problem is that the game unlocks the same few characters. After a few weeks of playing and unlocking characters I must have spent 30k twenty times to unlock characters but I keep getting the same 4 characters. So instead of spending 6000 coins and leveling up a low tier character, the game takes your 30,000 coins and levels up your low tier character. There are 1000 levels you can purchase but I am incredibly bored after 270. Unlocking characters seems to be the only progression to make but it is incredibly grindy and you never know what character you will get because RNG. Played for a month but have no desire to continue and I'm a long time fan of Bust-A-Move. Imo this game stinks because of the RNG factor in character progression.

Edit: I went two weeks without playing this game and only collecting the daily bonuses. I finally got 30,000 coins from this so I decided to unlock another 30,000 character. I got a duplicate character again. I have uninstalled this game.

How do you save your progress?


I don't have a lot of time for video games so when I play I like to save my progress. This game exists on the Japanese iTunes Store as puzzle bobble and you can save your progress via the ubiquitous LINE app but on this American version of the game that function is lost. I've been playing the game for years and I would hate to see my progress wiped Away by an accidental clearing of my iPhone. They could easily build a Facebook function in the app to save your progress with your Facebook account? There's just got to be a way to save your progress? You really should merge this app with the Japanese version and have one app that does it all for you with all of the features of the game available to every player regardless of country... The internet made the World International so why can't this game have an international mindset. Americans aren't that stupid to accept a less than standard port to a great game.?? You can find me playing the line puzzle Bobble version of this game I will skip this game until it gets a save feature and a commitment from the Publishers to keep the game up. This game was called Bust A Move Islands not too long ago. Your fans have a memory longer than 10 minutes!! please reward the hardcore bustamove fans

Online connectivity mars fun game


You have to be connected to the internet in order to launch the game. It checks for a connection at various points in the game; and stops the game if it doesn't find it. It’s a good game if you always have a connection, but frustrating if you don't. YMMV.

Another problem is that it lowers the volume of your music, even if you have SFX and background music turned off. I’m sure that this is a minor gripe for most players, but for me it’s a deal breaker. I haven’t played this in months for this reason alone.
