When Arkanoid first appeared on our screens way back in 1987, I was literally blown away by its superb game play and striking arcade style graphics. Twenty years on and I am still thrilled to play the game over and over again. Bu now that Matthew has kindly provided us with the ending, will I ever bother playing the game again? ...


Kill the muvva!


Ooo ... he's got a big zit on his head :)


I've seen this screen before!


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED? Matthew is a chee-eat; Mathew is a chee-eat :) (Vinny: I have since created a crazy hack that allows you to skip to the ending, as well as giving you a whole host of other features and cheats)

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: When you finally kill the big-headed boss on the last level, the screen flicks over to the title picture and starts to play an ending tune courtesy of Martin Galway. After that, an ending message appears (see the final screenshot above) to reveal the game's story ending.

COMMENTS :

  • Vinny: I'm impressed. Considering that the Arkanoid 2 ending was so dire, I was expecting the same for this game. What really sets it alight is the superb ending tune from Martin (spag. bol. mad) Galway. It's also nice to see the ending explained.
     

  • Andy Vaisey: An okayish ending, but I prefer the hacks! Yet again, you've given an old favourite a new lease of life. Great job!
     
  • Brendan Phoenix: Pretty much a word for word replica of the arcade original ending. Nice to see that.
     
  • Andrew Fisher: One of the better arcade conversions on the C64, but definitely one of the more irritating games when you get trapped on a difficult level... nice to see they kept the end faithful to the original.

FINAL SAY: It's worth a look and definitely worth a listen or two.

G.E. RATING: 6 / 10
