Were the PlayStation versions of Bust a Move the same type of game?

PS Bust a Move was sort of a half-DDR half-fighter where you chain dance moves into combos to outscore a human or AI opponent. It was a surprise hit mostly because the soundtrack was great and the graphics were at the time a new high for the hardware. Those games were called "Bust A Groove" in Japan, which is IMO a better name. And the PS2 third sequel was called "Dance Contest 2001" in all territories and nobody cared by then.

even more confusing with bust-a-move is that the playstation versions of puzzle bobble were called bust-a-move here, even if the arcade versions were called puzzle bobble.

but there was no port of the original to the playstation to my knowledge, so no, no picture of it.

I think the last time I saw any Puzzle Bobble game in the wild was probably Super Bust-A-Move on PS2 (the one with the baby wearing sunglasses on the cover). The game known as Bust A Groove was a completely different game.

Speaking of Taito, anyone game enough to run a dozen or more Space Invaders ports in MAME for the cause? Don't look at me though, as I can barely clear the first screen without getting an instant game over when one of them reaches the ground!

Space Invaders does have surprisingly few *official* ports at least. It's just one of the most cloned games ever(probably).

Konami's Scramble is a bit similar, lot's of unofficial conversions on platforms of the 80's, but the sequel Super Cobra has more official ports, some on rather exotic platforms:

Arcade


Atari 2600


Atari 5200 / Atari 800 (seem to be the same).


Adventurevision


Colecovision


Intellivision


Casio PV 1000


Casio PV 2000


Sord M5


Odyssey 2. Only scrolls when reaching the edge of the screen.


Not pictured: Playstation version in Konami's Arcade Gallery (hangs at logo, could be just my image though) and PC-6001 cartridge port (afaik no public dump). In fact, none of the Konami ports for that platform (6 total) seem to be available.

The software list image of Konami 80's Gallery works fine on the PlayStation driver. (Hurray for known-good images!)

as does the arcade version of the 80s Gallery, which has the game at the correct orientation rather than shifting parts of the display around to fit (so basically just looks like the original game, not worth making a shot)

horribly laggy controls make the game barely playable tho.

Took a look at the various incarnations of Boulder Dash after seeing the version with working PCjr support added to the softlist:

Apple II:

Atari 8bit computer:

Arcade (DECO, from what I remember, the Exidy version looks basically like Atari).

C64:

Amstrad CPC
[Linked Image]

Spectrum
[Linked Image]

Acorn Electron / BBC. These look essentially the same, the BBC version gives me a bit of trouble on MAME though (couldn't get softlist versions to work, working other versions have unusual flickering on MAME).

MSX. Databyte (Euro) cassette. I also had a look at the Japanese cartridge which is supposed to be a 'Champion Boulderdash' (per cover), but I couldn't immediately tell what the difference is supposed to be.
