Bust-A-Move 4, known as Puzzle Bobble 4 (パズルボブル4) in Japan, is the fourth and final Bust-A-Move game to be released on a Sega platform - this time, the Sega Dreamcast.

Bust-A-Move 4 is very similar to Bust-A-Move 3 in design, although offers a different cast of characters to play as and adds a pully system between the "nodes" which Bust-A-Move 3 introduced.
