Desperately Needs Update

It's a real shame that Taito has neglected such a beloved title. It launches in Japanese, then switches to English for no apparent reason. The resolution is non-retina, meaning if your phone is less than 6 years old, it will be pixelated. It also uses the aspect ratio of pre-iPhone 5 devices, so unless your iPhone is 4 years old, the game will have black bars on the top and bottom of the screen. Finally, even at $4.99, this embarrassment of a game requires additional in-app purchases to unlock all the features. This frustrating, outdated, and buggy app should be avoided in favor of one of the many knock-offs available on the App Store.

Great game, needs update

I love Bust-A-Move games, and I was thrilled to get this for my iPod touch when it came out a few years ago. The game is still great, but since it hasn't been updated since launch it now suffers from terrible resolution and aspect ratios on anything iPhone 5 or newer. I got a notification warning that the game will be unplayable after the next iOS update. Please update the game, or at least release a new one!

Please update!

I love this game, but please update it 😡 We need an update! This game was one of the first I bought on iOS and I think that lots more people will download it with a bug fix.
