want some stuff? Yeah, check it out. Looking for a puzzle
gaming fix? Yeah, I’ll fix ya up real nice. Ubi Soft’s got
just what you need: Super Bust A Move 2 for the
Gamecube and Playstation 2. The sequel to the PS2’s Super
Bust A Move will be released in October (for the PS2) then
again in December (for the Gamecube). Trust me, you’ll be
jonesing on this sh**.
in Super Bust A Move 2 remains faithful to the series.
You have to aim a colored bubble at an assortment of colored
bubbles at the top of the screen, which continue to accumulate
and descend. Attaching 3 bubbles of the same color bursts the
bubbles, with your aim being to clear the screen of bubbles
entirely or at least to last longer than your opponent. The
premise is easy to understand and just challenging enough to
execute, which is what makes it so damn addictive. Get set to

gives you 12 bizarre characters to choose from. And I do mean
bizarre. Unlike the colorful, anime-style characters from
previous Bust A Move series entries, these new

show off to their friends (if you really think they’ll
arcade/single player mode allows gamers to work their way
through several levels and stages to discover more about the
characters in the game and the story behind them (not that
you’d want to – they should have done this with Bust A
Move 2 for the N64, if they wanted us to care). Battle
mode lets you take on either your friends or the computer to
see who’s your daddy in the puzzle gaming arena. A scalable
difficulty level might make the game a bit more interesting
and challenging for the Bust-A-Burned Out among us.
disappointed in the lack of animation in previous Bust A
Move games (was anybody really that obsessed?) will have
no cause to worry. Ubi Soft has stated that there will new
animations included in the game in addition to featuring
"the highest-resolution visuals".
thousand of new puzzles found in the Super Bust A Move 2,
gamers should be very happy when the game is released later
