A trial version PC games program for Windows
If you were a big space invaders fan then you'll probably enjoy Arkanoid. With several different levels and obstacles to overcome, the challenge is to take on meteorites, enemy spacecraft and other nasties to proceed through the levels. Numerous bonuses are revealed by the broken wreckage you leave behind including a laser, a rocket launcher, force fields and many other powerups.
The game is very much a rip-off of the classic Space Invaders game although it adds its own twists in terms of levels of difficulty, sound effects and graphics. According to the developers, whether you are a teenager, student, parent or grandparent, you will instantly fall in love with this exciting game. I wouldn't go that far but it certainly brings back some good memories.
A fun game although could have been better with a few more original twists to distinguish it from space invaders.
Very fun game.

, much like the original arcade game from back in the 80's. It's played sideways, so your paddle is on the right and attempting to clear blocks on the left, as opposed to the original where your paddle was on the bottom and attempting to clear blocks at the top. The powers you get from the falling capsules seem to combine rather than overwrite each other, although there may be a setting to change this. It seems easier than the old arcade game, but maybe my coordination has improved since then. ;-) It's got a tutorial system that is built in to explain what each of the objects are, and it's easy to turn off. It is a mouse-based game, so you are not using the keyboard. I don't know if you can use the keyboard or not. I'd prefer a dial like the old days, but I don't have one.
