Nintendo tried hard to add its usual charm to this Breakout-style bat and ball game. The bat is a spaceship piloted by Mario, and some of the levels are shaped like Mario characters. You can do only so much with the genre, though, and while this'll pass some time, the superior DSiWare game Alphabounce is a better option in our humble opinion.

„Alleyway“ macht auch heute noch Spaß, keine Frage. Natürlich stinkt der Titel gegen modernere Breakout-Klone ab, aber das trübt den Grundspaß noch lange nicht. Um die 24 Stages zu bestehen, seid Ihr eine ganze Zeit lang beschäftigt und habt eine Menge zu tun, um am Leben zu bleiben. Die späteren Levels, in denen Eure Kugel häufig an unkaputtbaren Wänden abprallt – und womöglich Euer Raumschiff gleichzeitig kurzfristig kleiner wird – haben es in sich. Wer auf das Spielprinzip steht, kann für drei Euro durchaus zugreifen.

There are better versions by far of this brick breaking genre and better games available on the Virtual Console service. If you are a fan of the game or just an avid Nintendo collector this is the only real reason I can see to own this game. Do yourself a favor and stay clear of this title.
