More puzzles than any other Bust A Move before, with over 500 puzzles. Classic puzzle mode. There are 12 characters, many of which are unlockable. Same game - make a 3 bubble combination and it falls. Multi-player in ad-hoc mode. There are some puzzles in multi-player that aren't in single player. They still use the screen in landscape although the puzzle only occupies 1/3 of the screen. Russ the producer says that they tried to have the screen portrait but the buttons on the PSP aren't lined up intuitively then.
