El típico juego de la raqueta que tiene que destruir bloques. A pesas de su aparente sencillez, dificlmente conseguitá separarte de tu consola.

Alleyway é um tipo de paredão espacial. Você controla uma cápsula espacial que lança um projétil em direção a uma barreira, formada por pequenos retângulos. Cada retângulo atingido desaparecerá, e seu objetivo será eliminar todos os retângulos antes que eles cheguem à parte inferior da tela.

Ce soft est bien réalisé, avec une super musique genre Casino de Paris en 1937 et des bruitages sympas. Avec Alleyway, on arrive à bien s'amuser, mais cela reste, malgrès tout, un jeu de seconde zone par rapport aux grands hits sur Game Boy.

The graphics are nothing to brag about, but that is okay since different toned squares are basically all you will be looking at. Most of the sound effects are made by the ball hitting things so a small "ting" is what you hear the most. However, despite the simplicity and lack of variety, Alleyway is fun to play. Since the screen doesn't move, the game is easy to follow without requiring you to squint. Games of this type always play well on the Game Boy.

Power Play
Der Spieler baut in altbekannter Marnier mit einem Ball und dem Schläger eine Reihe Ziegelsteine ab. Leider haben die Nintendo-Programmierer, die sonst für brilliantes Spieldesign bekannt sind, ein wesentliches Spielelement vergessen: Die Extras, die das angegraute Spielprinzip so richtig würzen. Auch wenn ein paar nette Ideen (ganze Mauern scrollen waagerecht über den Schirm) drin sind: ein schaler Duft weht um das sonst nicht üble Modul.

What a bore. Screen after screen of boring bricks to knock away, and hardly any variety. If this had a couple of power ups it might okay. As it stands it's about as exciting as watching paint dry. If you're having trouble getting to sleep, play this - it's more powerful than any sleeping tablet!

Gra Alley Way to dziś zabytek, w czasach Gameboy Advance właściwie niegodny uwagi. Warto jednak wiedzieć, że kiedyś taka gra trafiła do sklepów. A nuż ktoś w przyszłości zechce ją nam wcisnąć po raz kolejny?
