Have you ever heard of a little game called "Pong"? If not, well then you must have been on Mars for the last 30 years or so. This classic Atari game dates back from the 70's. In "Pong" you had to play some sort of tennis. There were 2 bats and a ball, and it was your job to try and bounce the ball behind the opponents bat. It happens sometimes that a game, derived from a classic idea, gets even better than the original. This is a bit the case with the following game. "Arkanoid" is the mother of all breakout games. We all know the concept by now. In this type of game we only get one bat and a ball, and it is our job to destroy the bricks at the top of the screen, by bouncing the ball at them. Once you miss to return the ball, you lose a life. It's really simple, and addictive, I can assure you. Originally released by Taito for the arcade market in 1984, it was converted to almost any home system at the time.
