Some changes, but gameplay still like original version

  • Summary: Length:: 4:38 Mins I used to play this in the arcade in the early 90's all the time. The story line may be different, I really don't remember, but it's irrelevant to the gameplay anyway.Some levels appear different, and some I definately remember as being the same as the arcade version.

  • Summary: I would rather it have been the original version, but they tried to make it more upbeat for todays kids. I think if you've never played the old version you'll like it.

  • Summary: Great game, with or without the paddle! The paddle though is definately the way to play this game. Unfortunately the paddle is no longer available and this bundle is the only way you can get it now (at least from here). And if you want to know what color it is, its white. A lot of the updates are very good like the new game modes and multilayer (AI and humans), but some though could've used more work like the music and new additional changes to the gameplay to spice up...

Good time killer

  • Summary: Liked the game. Old classic with good colors and snazzy jazz tunes. Great activity to kill some time. Many different levels and combinations possible before winning the game completely.

Enjoyable take on an old favorite

N. Durham "Big Evil", Amazon
6 July 2008
  • Summary: Arkanoid has pretty much always been good for a blast, and this new age Arkanoid for the DS is no different. Featuring a bevy of visual upgrades, new power-up's, multiplayer options, Quest and Clear modes, and unlockables; this Arkanoid warrants a try at the very least. Using the stylus as a paddle works surprisingly well (trying to use the D-pad surprisingly does not), and the game remains as simply addictive as ever.

Another Classic Block Game

Michael Kerner "Michael Kerner", Amazon
6 July 2008
  • Summary: It just seems to me right now, there just aren't any great games coming out for the Nintendo DS right now, the classics have just been eating gamers away. While we've seen mental games like Brain Age, Crosswords DS, and New Super Mario Brothers score very well, there just aren't any great games coming out right now. Instead, what we are seeing right now are just classic spin-offs from the past come alive agaiin for the handhelds DS.

Totally Addictive!

Katrina L. Obryan, Amazon

  • Summary: Arkanoid is a game that is probably familiar to almost anyone. The entry for the DS is an excellent entry in this long running series of games that have appeared on almost every console imaginable. The concept is simple; move your paddle or vaus as it's called (which is actually a spaceship) back and forth along the bottom of your screen while hitting a ball to destroy all blocks that are on the top screen. It sounds simple and it is...in the beginning.

Different from the original...

Graphic Novel / Manga Reader "ownstoomanybooks", Amazon
25 June 2008
  • Summary: I kept waiting for someone to go first but looks like I'll be first... First of all, Arkanoid plays just fine with a stylus. I'm sure it's better with a paddle like the original but since the game didn't come with one, the stylus works good. I enjoyed playing it with the stylus. There is an option of easy, normal, or hard. I chose normal hoping it's like the original.

  • Summary: I agree completely with what segacon said, and you can't really say much more than what he did. But I will. The paddle is great, it's got some resistance to it, and if you spin it fast enough it'll keep going for a bit.
