As Young MC's "Bust a Move" says, "You want it, you got it," DS owners. Those in possession of Nintendo's handheld can now stop blowing bubbles and popping them with their stylus in real life to get their filmy-sphere-bursting fix. Majesco today has shipped Bust-A-Move DS, one of the most popular puzzle games, for the Nintendo DS. Bust-A-Move is rated E for Everyone and retails for $19.99.

In the game, players use the stylus to fling colored bubbles from the bottom screen to the top screen, with the goal of matching three like bubbles together. The game combines accuracy and quick thinking as users try to eliminate all of the bubbles from the screen.

The DS version features 500 puzzles to solve, and uses the handheld's Wi-Fi capabilities to support up to five players. The new slingshot system actually sees gamers pulling bubbles back on a type of rubber band, with each end held by one of the cute reptilian hosts, Bub and Bob.

Bust-A-Move DS was developed by Happy Happening and licensed from Taito by Majesco.
