  • 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.

Another Classic Block Game

Michael Kerner "Michael Kerner", Amazon
29 December 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.

  • Summary: This was OK, it did what it said on the box! A little small for the characters, I don't use it much I prefer a larger screen to play arkanoids on but cannot find anything on sale that will let me play this game on a computer screen unfortunately.

Good fun - slightly complicated gameplay

  • Summary: Lots of cool teams to choose from and you can pick your own name. Unfortunately it took my a lot of games to work out that i had to build the team profile before I could do anything. The tactics are a little too complicated. Very good effort but needed improvement. Once you start loosing a game, it is SOOOOOO difficult to turn it around and win. I lost interest at one point.

Space Invaders Meets Pong

Burning_D..., Ciao
25 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Arkanoid is an interesting late 1980s game that combines the gameplay of earlier video game classics Space Invaders and Pong. You control a small bat at the bottom of the screen, and the aim of the game is to bounce your ball at the tiles above, thus destroying them, without allowing your ball to fall into the empty space below your bat.
  • Pros: simple, addictive gameplay, colourful graphics, satisfying sound effects
  • Cons: None

The only problem is the PC version

J Gamer, amazon.co.uk
23 June 2010
  • Summary: Very good addictive and fun DS game. However, it's a strategy game not a sports game and requires real thought and concentration. I didn't even know there was a board game before I bought it and picked up the game after a while. However it is frustrating losing your first few matches. The only problem with the game is you only get two save files on the DS card so if you want a third championship you have to delete one of the other two first.

Arkanoid - now available for the Nintendo DS

julwhite, Ciao
6 July 2009
  • Excerpt: This review is for the Nintendo DS game, Arkanoid, developed by the Taito Corporation and published by Square Enix. The game involves knocking out blocks using a ball which you have to keep in play, and different forms of the game have appeared on most gaming systems. The game has 140 levels to work through across five different worlds, which is a reasonable number to work through.
  • Pros: Good multi - player functions, good graphics and sound, lots of levels
  • Cons: Difficult to control, needs paddle which came with other releases of the game

ds controls work fine

Mightymath "mightymath", Amazon
16 February 2009
  • Summary: Some other reviews mention the lack of a paddle but I find the stylus works just fine. This version doesn't add much to the original though and isn't worth paying more than budget price for. In fact they should have priced it at £10 to start with then I could recommend. Good fun but only for a while.
