A lot of thought was put into Arkanoid for iPhone, reminding me of the recent Space Invaders Extreme. The controls are right on the money, the branching system adds nice replay value, and the clean presentation makes it worth the $4.99 cost of entry. This is a solid improvement on a classic formula and a welcome addition to my iPhone mainstays.
This retro revisit is well worth its price of admission. Players will be able to play around 100 different levels across a standard story and two extra stories. Two players will also be able to play from opposing sides of the iPad as Arkanoid becomes a crazy version of Breakout Pong with power-ups and enemies. And, finally, who can forget the return of the ridiculous storyline? Yes, everything is intact. Taito has done well for fans old and new.
All in all, this is a great rebirth of the Arkanoid franchise from the company that basically started it all. It is all of the best Arkanoid experiences, compressed into one. And while it has it’s cons, it will be a worthwhile addition to the iPhone games collection of anyone who grew up on the series. Anybody else, looking for something new, should probably pass on this classic.
Fans of the classic arcade game won't be disappointed and I’m sure this latest version of Arkanoid will win many new fans. Taito didn’t settle for a rush port and instead delivered a solid experience with loads of features and hours of brick-bashing fun.
The touch-interface works as expected, letting you drag your finger along the screen to move the paddle, and you can opt to play either with multiple lives or below-paddle barriers that disappear when you miss the ball. And while the Pong-like multiplayer mode – in which players man separate sides of the iPad, batting the ball back and forth while volleying for power-ups – is pretty standard fare, it's always nice to see another single-device multiplayer option. Arkanoid HD doesn't deviate much from expectations, and the sterile, straightforward approach may disappoint some seeking a modernized interpretation of this classic, but it's a meaty and worthwhile entry in the bustling iOS block-breaking genre.
