Game: Arkanoid
Manufacturer: Taito
Year: 1986
Type: vertical color raster upright

Arkanoid is a popular and fresh take on an updated Breakout, in which some of the blocks you destroy release power-ups that you can catch. There are also some additional enemies that move around the field of play.

The game was released as a conversion kit and never had a dedicated cabinet. I picked up a classic style Taito cabinet, a converted Qix, and decided to re-image what an original cabinet may have looked like. Then I installed Arkanoid and Arkanoid 2: Revenge of Doh and created a multi-game so that either could be played.
