Arkanoid 2 - March 26, '00 by Dorsola
Game:Arkanoid 2Company:Taito
Type:PuzzlePlayers:1/2

One year after Arkanoid, Taito brings you "The Revenge of DOH". An enhanced version of your original escape pod, the Vaus, is inserted into a strange mothership and sent into another series of Breakout-style puzzles, featuring more and newer powerups, deadlier enemies, and some new twists such as blocks that move and reappear. The plotline is pretty much the same - you're trapped in this alien universe and forced to break your way out with a ball, without losing it off the bottom of the screen.
As can be reasonably expected of a sequel, this game does feature improved graphics and sound, though not by all that much. Gameplay is almost exactly the same as before, though your newer enhancements (such as multiple power-up pills at once, super-balls and occasionally the fire pill, which gives a random (and usually quite spectacular) effect) make the game much more interesting than the original. And the old familiar controls are still there - a knob and a button - just as challenging as the original, and then some.
Now... one thing I'd like to know about the plot... why the heck did they call your adversary "DOH"? Hmm.... maybe they decided to name him after one of the many epithets people would yell when they lose the ball. <grin>
