Arkanoid: Doh It Again

Moby ID: 8408
SNES Specs


A sequel to the arcade game Arkanoid. Use your paddle to move the ball around and hit bricks to clear the level. Once all the bricks are gone in the current level, you go on to the next level. Power-ups, like lasers and paddle lengthening will help you during the levels. Unlike the arcade version, the sequel has boss battles and somewhat of a storyline.

Pong on steroids!

The Good
This game was really fun. At first things start slow and easy, almost boring. Soon the game really starts to pick up as you develop strategy and get handy with the paddle. For a simple game it's really really challenging. Every 11 levels there is a boss and they are fun to play against and when you win it's GLORIOUS!

The Bad
It's not what was in the game I didn't like but what was left out. In 2 player mode C it's split screen in a race to eradicate all the blocks first. Best 2 out of 3 wins. I think it would have been a lot better if instead of just power-ups there could have been some handi-caps. Maybe some that slow down your paddle or even your opponents. Things to that nature would have really made the game even more interactive.

The Bottom Line
A simple fun game that provides many hours of gameplay.

The game features two endings, one when the player initially defeats the final boss. And a second, happier ending at level 99 when that same final boss is defeated for the third time. Credits scroll for both.
