Arkanoid
Review 1:
One of my favorite arcade games when I had my Amiga 500. The game is very
simple as you just have to shoot a ball up on different blocks. Every
time you hit one it dissapears and once you have removed all blocks you
have completed the level. You can get extra things such as 3 balls,
laser, glue and much more from he letters that sometimes appear when you
hit one of the blocks. The more levels you complete the more complex and
faster levels you get to. There are also some robots flying arround which
you have to kill or at least avoid as they are trying to stop you from
completing the level. All though they can be a bit annoying they do have
a somewhat random movement area and are rarely getting all the way down
to you before you have hit them. Overall a funny game which you can use
mana hours on.

Review 2:

Arkanoid - the all-time classical bounce-back-game! Simple, ingenious
concept - just bounce the ball back against the stone and they disappear.
Sometimes a goodie comes falling down that makes your - well, how should
I call it? I guess it should be some kind of spacecraft - anyway - it
gets bigger, can shoot and some other thingsa depending on the color of
the falling goody. Well well - this can really addict you for some hours
and more and it's SO small...

Review 3:

One of the most famous games of this type, Arkanoid was first released on
arcade machines by Taito, then transferred to PC's by Nova Logic. You
know what to do right? Fire the ball into the blocks and make sure it
doesn't fall down the screen. And keep doing that for hundreds of levels
(or so). Review 4: A well-known game with lots of levels and much fun.
You must hit the bricks with the ball, so that they disappear, but you
must reflect the ball using the pad, wich you control. When all bricks
are gone, you'll move on to the next level, wich is ussually harder and
they may look a bit different. Also the speed can be turned up. It's
worth playing! The game is nice and fun to play, but it might run slow on
your computer. You need to download a slowdown application, wich you
download on one of the application pages. Review 5: Bats and balls.. bats
and balls... Breakout involved trying to deflect a bouncing ball with a
padel (while keeping it in play) so that it smashed into a wall of
coloured bricks. Not only was it simplicity itself, it was also more
addictive then covering yourself in peanut butter and thinking about
nuns... yeah! So anyway, Arkanoid is a demon hell-spawned clone of
Breakout; a silly, silly plot (something about spaceships and "space
walls"), more features, better graphics, about a quadrillion (it's a
word!) times more addictive than the original! The biggest improvement is
the addition of powerups that fall down the screen when you hit certain
bricks. The *S* power up slows down the speed of the ball (sorry, energy
bolt =P) so that you can take things a little easier, while the *L*
powerup gives you a laser gun (COOL!)
