Game Introduction

The game is similar to Bust-A-Move, but as well as having to link three or more spheres of the same color together to eliminate them, you have to clear all the spheres away from a "plate", which drops down when the supporting spheres are destroyed. While playing against an opponent, if more than three spheres are removed at once, they will be added to the collection on the other player's screen.

Cheats, Tricks, Bugs, and Easter Eggs

Clearing spheres more than three at a time produces a big bonus. This is possible by building up two groups of two, of the same color, and then linking them to make a five-sphere clearance.
