Bust-a-Move DS, known as Hippatte!! Puzzle Bobble (ひっぱって!!パズルボブル) in Japan, is a puzzle video game developed by Happy Happening and published by Majesco Entertainment for the Nintendo DS handheld video game console.

Instead of the usual firing mechanism used in previous games in the series, a slingshot system is used to fire bubbles.

This game should not be confused with Puzzle Bobble DS, an entirely different game released only in Japan.

The game received mixed reaction due to the game lacking new features apart from the new slingshot system.
