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 that block and deflect the ball in unexpected ways.

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, Tournament Arkanoid, and Arkanoid 2: Revenge of Doh and created a multi-game where you could cycle between games.
