Review Kids need puzzle games, too. Enter , a breezy affair that plays like upside down Puzzle Bobble (Bust-A-Move in the U.S.). It's got bright, colorful graphics, easy stylus controls, and you really have to work to fail a level, making it a good fit for the younger puzzler. If you have pubic hair, though, Rock Blast probably won't get its hooks in you. It's too easy, lacking a real challenge and, therefore, any sense of accomplishment...The premise here is that the local volcano has erupted and it's up to you to use the rock cannon to prevent lava from flooding your village. You aim the cannon from the top of the screen, as opposed to from the bottom in Puzzle Bobble. The D-pad can be used for aiming, but I found the stylus to be more precise. You launch rocks into the rising lava, matching at least three of the same colors to clear the boulders. Typical game modes are offered like puzzle, survival, and time attack...My first time playing the story mode I made it past level 30 without losing. You have to clear a certain amount of rocks to pass a stage and each level slightly increases the quote amount. But this is a very slow moving game. It will throw some tricks at you like a flying saucer that gets in your way, but it doesn't get frantic enough to give the player a workout. You can even call upon your dinosaur friends to help you out with their special powers, making you further invincible. Often, you'll clear the entire screen and have to wait for the lava to rise again. It would be nice to be able to speed up the gameplay if we choose, but that option is not available...Not helping the monotony, the background never changes. It's always the same lava pit. A change of scenery might have made the game feel a little less sluggish...If you know a kid who is into puzzle games, Rock Blast will keep them quiet for a while in the backseat during their next car trip. But to the more accomplished gamer, this Bust-A-Move clone will put you to sleep. Instead, try the excellent Bust-A-Move DS.
