Game Description

Experience a slice of video game history as the '80s classic Arkanoid is reinvented for Nintendo DS. The object of Arkanoid is simple: Use your paddle to send a bouncing ball hurtling toward colored blocks. Break up the blocks and don't miss the ball. The game became an instant favorite upon its release in 1986, winning tons of fans with its easy but addictive play. This updated version - available only on DS - features three game modes and vibrant new backgrounds. Try to become the Arkanoid DS champ in two- and four-player multiplayer options. You'll accumulate points as you play, which you can trade for new backgrounds and icons.
