Bust-a-Move DS, known as Hippatte!! Puzzle Bobble in Japan, is a puzzle video game developed by Happy Happening and published by Majesco Games for the Nintendo DS handheld video game console. Instead of the usual firing mechanism used in previous games in the series, a slingshot system is used to fire bubbles. This game should not be confused with Puzzle Bobble DS, an entirely different game released only in Japan. The game received mixed reaction due to the game lacking new features apart from the new slingshot system.
There are two components for playing a ds Bust-a-Move DS game on your PC. The first component is the emulation program which can imitate the ds OS and software.
The second component is the Bust-a-Move DS game itself to play on the emulator.
Step 1: you can start by downloading a reliable and bug free emulator. We’d suggest NO$GBA – it’s open source, fast and one of the most frequently updated.
Once you have finished downloading NO$GBA , extract the downloaded .zip file to a location, for example your Desktop. After, double click the no$gba.exe file in order to start the emulator.
Your emulator will now be ready to play Bust-a-Move DS. But now you’ll need to find the correct ROMs online. A ROM is essentially a virtual version of the game that needs to be loaded into the emulator.
Step 2: return to NO$GBA and hit File > Open. Navigate to the downloaded .exe file and double click it to open it. The game will now run on the emulator and you can play the game freely.
Tip: Saving games on an emulator functions a little differently. The integrated save system will not save your progress.
Instead, you’ll need to click File > Save State and then choose an empty slot. You can save your progress in whatever point you like within the game, not only on the official checkpoints offered by the game.
When playing in the future and you want to continue from your saved state, you can use File > Load State to load up the game from exactly where you last saved it.
