Game History:
Arkanoid is an arcade game developed by Taito in 1986. It is based upon Atari's Breakout games of the 1970s. The title refers to a doomed "mothership" from which the Vaus, the player's controller, escapes.

IT'S A REAL BLOCK-BUSTER!
Their earth-like planet was devastated by a brutal attack of aliens. The survivors roam the galaxy on their photon spaceship Arkanoid in search of a new home. The Arkanoid is attacked and the survivors barely escape in the Vaus spacecraft. Instead of finding safety, they are now trapped in a deadly space labyrinth.

GAME PLAY: Your mission is to destroy the space walls with the energy ball by strategic movement of your Vaus spacecraft which you control with the special high-speed controller included with the game. There are 33 rounds in this game, and you can choose to start in any one of the first 16. Some walls contain power capsules that will increase your powers, advance you to the next round, or give you an extra Vaus. But watch out for the debris from the destroyed planet that floats around in space to drive you crazy. In the final round, a huge enemy fortress will loom before you. This is the
ultimate challenge!
