Release Date: 17 Feb, 2017
Arkanoids are among my all time favorite arcade games. I've bought hundreds of them since the first one was released on those large console cabinets. I must have put hundreds of pounds and Deutschmarks (cost 10p or 50 Pfennigs per game) into those slot machines back in the mid 1970's when breakout first appeared (Atari 1976).
This is the worst Arkanoid clone I've ever played. The concept was great, but the game is full of bugs for example, the bat does not travel the full length of the perimeter, so occasionally you lose a life until all are gone, then you have to restart. The other bug is even worse, the ball ends up going from left to right with no way to make it change it's course, so you have to restart the game 'AGAIN' Also, the game is devoid of bonus drops such as speed ups, slow downs, bombs, rocket launchers, guns spare lives etc.
I love breakouts, and as said above, the concept was great, with boss levels and different layouts, for example two bats and four bat modes (hardcore mode), but that isn't enough to save this game considering the lack of power ups and the bugs that are present in the game.
I bought this via Steam when it was released Feb 2017 two years ago, but never got around to playing it via my Steam version. Thankfully it was one of those cheap \u00a30.79\/$0.99\/\u20ac0.99 crappy games, so I can't complain. What I can't believe is that the game is still being sold via Steam. You can see two videos of the game where you see the game broken www.youtube.com\/watch?v=GajaQxAiiac\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noreferrer\" >HERE<\/b><\/a> & www.youtube.com\/watch?v=uu42zIpeBTs\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noreferrer\" >HERE<\/b><\/a>
As said in the review above, this is the worst arkanoid\/breakout clone I've ever played partly due to the two bugs I mentioned, i.e. the ball can be lost because you can't move the bat to the edge of the playing field plus the ball gets stuck and you have to lose a life to continue until the bug forces you to start from the beginning. It also uses the ancient password scheme, so if you do manage to complete a section of the game where you are given a password code, you can then start the game from that point instead of starting from the beginning. Despite having played this game for hours simply to check out the code process; becasue of the bugs I never got far enough into the game to get a password. It's been available via Steam for over two years and unbelievably has been given mainly positive reviews despite some posting about the bugs, but the developer has never bothered updating the game to fix the bugs since it left Greenlight. (I voted for it simply because breakouts have been my favorite arcade genre for years). There are some positive things to say about the game, for example the four modes of play (bosses, single bat, two bat and hardcore four bat modes), but the execution of the game is poorly executed i.e. there are no power ups such a speed ups, guns extra lives etc also the ball speed is far too slow to make the game challenging. Thankfully you can find hundreds of much better executed free arkanoids via browser sites such as mini-clip or downloadable copies via free game sites such as MyPlayCity, FreeGamePick, Gametop and Caiman
Navigate main menu = \u2193 or \u2191 + Enter
Back\/Pause = Esc
Full Screen toggle = F1
Restart = R
Bat movement = \u2190 & \u2192
Mouse = use for password
Despite my negative review, if you are into a pure breakout with no power ups (as in the first ever breakout) you may like this game despite the two bugs mentioned above. The four modes of play do add some variety and increase the difficulty slightly, but because the ball speed is relatively slow for a breakout, the challenge isn't great.
