- Krakout (2001 on Windows)
Arkanoid-style Breakout clone, which unlike most other similar games has the bat on the side of the screen (there is a left/right option) instead of at the bottom. There are 100 screens to be conquered.
There are a number of types of special bricks, but unlike e.g. Arkanoid, they do not fall towards the bat. Instead, when you hit a special brick, it flips to show a letter. E.g. E (Extend bat), C (Catch ball), M (Missile), B (Bomb, explodes when hit by ball, clearing a number of bricks) and X (Extra life). Extra lives are also awarded when the player scores 10,000 points.
The enemies/obstacles are more varied than in Arkanoid. Some make the bat freeze, some actually chew and eat your ball and spit out the core back at you!

Upon loading Krackout your greeted by a chirpy little tune that welcomes you to the game. Smart graphics display a side on view of the traditional Breakout game. You soon get used to this unique style and find a very enjoyable game. Completing the game was supposed to reward you with a level designer.
You will always come across a level that takes many attempts to beat.
The Bottom Line
An entertaining Breakout clone.
