Bobbling the record straight
This was Bubble Bobble. Only one person in the world disputes this.
This next game, featuring the same characters as Bubble Bobble, was called Puzzle Bobble in Japan, but when it came to the US and Europe it was renamed, inexplicably, Bust-A-Move. It also had an early working title of Bubble Buster.
The following game was called Bust-A-Move in Japan, but outside of Japan it had to be renamed Bust-A-Groove since Puzzle Bobble was already being called Bust-A-Move.
Finally, and not really relevant, the game below was called Buster Brothers. It has an alternate title of "Pang".
Every one of the above games has spawned sequels which retain the naming convention based on the country.
This has been an overview of your various similarly named bubble- and move-busting games. You may now carry on with your life.
