About The Game

Puzzle Bobble 4, as its name implies, is an arcade video puzzle game.

Shoot coloured bubbles towards clusters of other bubbles. When groups of similarly coloured bubbles are formed, the bubbles burst.

Trivia

The game forbids the initials 'SEX' on the high score table. If you try, it gets changed to 'AAA'.

Updates

The US version is slightly different, it has a "Winners Don't Use Drugs" screen and a "Recycle It, Don't Trash It!" screen.
