Arkanoid: Space Ball... A futuristic atmosphere, modern techno-style graphics, dynamic gameplay and an excellent soundtrack give this game as a present for all Arkanoid's admirers. You have to clear a lot of platforms-levels soaring in space, and meteorites, spacecrafts and guns of enemies constantly will be threatened your life. Numerous bonuses dropped out from the broken blocks will help you to pass all obstacles: the laser, the rocket launcher, force fields and many other things. Game is distinguished by the features interesting and unusual for classical Arkanoid: horizontally oriented

"Good play but no way to save a game or choose a level of play."

It is possible to save game state. Each new level game state automaticaly stored. But restore available only for registered users.

Registered users also can make it's own levels and play on them.

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.

Numerous bonuses dropped out from the broken blocks will help you to pass all obstacles: the laser, the rocket launcher, force fields and many other things. Game is distinguished by the features interesting and unusual for classical Arkanoid: horizontally oriented break block formation, moving and shooting bricks, Gravitational anomalies effects to flights of the balls and missiles, etc. In short, whether you are a teenager, student, parent or grandparent, you will instantly fall in love with this exciting game. "Arkanoid: Space Ball" is free to try, which means you buy the game only if you like it.
