WTTW: Just Like Arkanoid (If the Bricks Were Trying to Kill You)

SPACE INVADERS AND ARKANOID GET BUSY

Gamers of a certain age will recall a little ditty by Taito known as Arkanoid–basically it was a dressed-up Breakout with all manner of twists and turns.

Well 2010 now gives us Multiball Rampage which, unlike any other Arkanoid (or Breakout) clone, actually features malevolent bricks that have been taking lessons from Taito’s favorite son: Space Invaders, as they march inexorably, towards the bottom of the screen seeking to squeeze the life out of your hapless paddle. It’s a neat twist to a pretty tired formula (though Shatter might beg to differ with that assessment), and should keep you plenty busy for the next few hours.

    In this case… BRICK HIT BACK!

    Huh, maybe I’m behind the times on browser games but the special effects in this one are pretty good.

    I like the concept – the physics need some work (most Breakout type games will change which direction the ball moves depending upon where you hit it with the paddle) but overall it’s a fun little game.
