One of the earliest games with this kind of mechanic was Bust-A-Move, which premiered in the US in 1994 in the arcades featuring the characters from Bubble Bobble. Since then several versions have shown up on most of the major and portable consoles. The series is still going strong with the latest iteration, Space Bust-A-Move on the Nintendo DS."
