Cluster Buster ImagePut your quick reflexes and puzzle-solving skills to the test as you race against the clock with Cluster Buster! Create clusters of like-colored or like-shaped balls to clear the playfield before the wall comes crashing down on you! Multiple skill settings for more challenging play!



Q: How do I play?

A: Adjust the angle of the turret to fire the balls at the clusters on the top of the screen. Matching clusters of three or more like-colored or like-shaped gems will clear them from the screen, and any gems left suspended will fall off. As gems are cleared away additional gems will be added and descend the screen. There is a set number of gems to clear before advancing to the next level. Keep in mind that you are racing against the clock! When the meter fills the gems will decend. If the any gems drop below the gray 'terminal' line, the game will end.

Q: What are the controls?


- Adjust turret angle:  ,  / arrow keys.
- Adjust turret angle (faster):  +  ,  +  / arrow keys.
- Fire gem:  button, return key.

Q: Can fired gems bounce off of the walls?

A: Yup! As you get the hang of it you'll be able to bank shots off the walls for those tricky ones.

Q: Hey what's that big brick wall?

A: As time progresses the remaining gems will descend the screen. When there are no more remaining gems to be added, a brick wall will follow them.

Q: This doesn't seem hard enough!

A: As the levels progress, certain characteristics will change, making the game much more difficult:

- Gems with new colors will be added ('Colors And Shapes'/'Colors Only' games)
- Gems with new shapes will be added ('Colors And Shapes'/'Shapes Only' games)
- More Gems will appear at the start of the level
- More Gems will be active on the screen at once
- Time meter will increase in speed.

Q: How many colors and shapes are there?

A: 11 of each:












Q: Hey everything is turned sideways! What is happening?!

A: The screen is oriented that way to reduce the amount of scrolling necessary to play, shallow angles won't wear out your scroll wheel as quickly! Plus it adds a lot more room to play, so try holding the device at 90 degrees. That doesn't mean you can't play Cluster Buster holding the Hiptop normally though.

Q: Are there any cheats in Cluster Buster?

A: There sure are, but we aren't telling you. You'll have to find them out on your own.

Q: What's that big round thing behind the turret?

A: That's just decoration.

Q: Harder! Harder!

A: Well there are some settings you can try. Under the "Settings" menu, click on "Difficulty/Game Stype". Here you can select four modes of difficulty, as well as the number of colors and shapes that begin each game.

Q: Faster! Faster!

A: Uhhh, under the "Controls" menu you can change how many degrees scrolling and menu-scrolling adjusts the turret angle.

Q: My priest got mad when he kept hearing popping sounds from the back of the church and told me I was going to hell!

A: Under the "Settings" menu, click on "Sound/Vibration". Uncheck the "Use Sound" box.

Q: This lady keeps looking at me and seems interested.

A: Probably not, under the "Settings" menu, click on "Sound/Vibration". Uncheck the "Use Vibration" box.
