This week on Xbox LIVE Arcade: Qix++

You remember Qix, right? That great old game where you draw lines, trying to fill the majority of a stage while not getting hit by the annoying squiggly line monster and its minions. It was and still is loads of fun, especial...

Review: Space Bust-A-Move photo
Review: Space Bust-A-Move
by Colette Bennett

Ah, Bust-A-Move. No matter how many incarnations of the little game seem to come about, I'm always interested in playing another one and losing myself in that mindless but addictive puzzle action. Naturally, as soon as I saw that Square Enix would be distributing the latest installment in the series, Space Bust-A-Move, I was on the case and ready to check it out. And is that a story I spy?

Yes, in this version you will follow Bub and Bob's adventures as they go after the evil Develin and try to collect items called Cosmo Bubbles to save the world. Not sure what connection Cosmo Bubbles have to actually saving the world, but you don't ask those sorts of questions when you play a videogame. You have to defeat Develin, dammit!

Hit the break for more.
