ADVERTISEMENT Aquanoid Stefan Heineke & Karsten Finger, 1995 Rating: Shareware [ ] A fast moving Arkanoid clone. It features VGA graphics (it's quite colorful) and PC speaker sound effects (don't worry, they can be turned off!).
There are many different powerups, and one of the handy features of the game is that there is a light at the right side of the screen which tells you whether the one that's falling is good or bad, so you don't have to memorize all of the different capsules. (151k) Bananoid William Rieder, 1989 Rating: Shareware [ ] A fairly basic Arkanoid clone. One difference is that the playing field is bigger than one screen, so the screen scrolls as you move. It will also work on a slower computer, so if you still use a 386, you may want to try this one out. (47k) Bat & Ball Andre van Wyk, 1994 Rating: Shareware [ ] An Arkanoid clone with a twist: Here you must guard your 'castle' from the bouncing ball instead of trying to destroy it. You battle against three other paddles who are trying to protect their own castles.
Praxis Discography Rar Downloads more. The graphics and sound aren't that great, but this is an amazing game for its size: 12k! (12k) Bipbop 2 S&M Software, 1993 Rating: Shareware [ ] BipBop 2 (I don't remember ever seeing the first one, if it exists) it a ball & paddle game.
It's a bit different though, kind of hard to describe. It's very simplistic, so if you have young children, this could be a good game for them to play. (Note: You will probably need MoSlo from the page to play this game at a reasonable speed.) (153k) Blockage, 2003 Rating: Freeware [ ] This simple Arkanoid clone has decent graphics and offers fast, no-frills gameplay. There are some lively graphics effects as well to keep things interesting. Pretty impressive considering the zip file is only 5k in size! (Note: This game does NOT seem to run well in DOSBox.) (5k) Bounce Zone Compute! Publications, 1990 Rating: Freeware [ ] Like Pong, but actually fun to play!
There's actually some skill involved here, as you can send the ball firing towards your opponent (the computer. It's only a one player game) and also move forward and backwards into the foreground. (Note: Unless you have a VERY slow computer, you will need MoSlo from the section to make it run at a reasonable speed.) (86k) Breakfree Software Storm, 1994 Rating: Shareware [ ] This Arkanoid close is truly unique. Because it's in 3D! 'How would THAT work?'
Not extremely well. It IS fun to play. However, it's easy to miss the 'ball' (fireball?) because of the 3D perspective.
The graphics are pretty good, however, and there are some SB sound effects (although no music). Check it out for a unique experience. (414k) Breakout, 1991 Rating: Freeware [ ] A simple clone of the old Atari bouncing ball game 'Breakout'. There's some nice color cycling, the controls are decent, and you have more freedom of movement compared to the original.
Not too much to say here though, other than this is one of the earlier creations of Ken Silverman, who later would create Ken's Labyrinth as well as the Build engine which was used for Duke Nukem 3D and other classic early 3D games. (Note: If you're interested in a fantastic modern Windows breakout/Arkanoid style game, I highly recommend! I've registered it, it's tons of fun!) (45k) Bricks, 1991 Rating: Freeware [ ] The object of this unique puzzle game is to 'free' one brick from the other bricks that are surrounding it. There is a bit of variety in the puzzles, given by the different types of other bricks that interfere with your task. The game's website also posts lots of additional information, like updated highscores lists, desktop icons, etc. Poor graphics but it's still a fun puzzle game. (103k) Construction Bob (in the Bouncing Factory) Oracle Software, 1993 Rating: Shareware [ ] Construction Bob is a variant of sorts of the normal Arkanoid/Breakout bouncing ball game, except here the 'ball' is Construction Bob!
