    NDS Arkanoid DS (w/ Paddle Controller) Released

    Newly released today is Arkanoid DS with the Paddle Controller, heres the info about the game:





    Arkanoid DS is a remake of Taito's popular arcade game originally developed in 1986. Those who are not familar with this classic, you control the "Vaus", a space vessel that acts as the game's "paddle" which prevents a ball from falling from the playing field, attempting to bounce it against a number of bricks. The ball striking a brick causes the brick to disappear

    When all the bricks are gone, the player goes to the next level, where another pattern of bricks appear. There are a number of variations (bricks that have to be hit multiple times, flying enemy ships, etc.) and power-up capsules to enhance the Vaus (expand your Vaus, multiply the number of balls, equip a laser cannon, break directly to the next level, etc), but the gameplay remains the same.

    Arkanoid DS features three different single player modes: clear mode, quest mode, and VS computer. The clear mode is the classic stage-by-stage that features 140 levels total. Quest mode allows you to select stages that you've unlocked to complete special objectives and earn game points. The VS mode allows you to clear either all the blocks or blocks of a certain color before your opponent does the same, and this mode can also be played ad hoc against friends.

    Looks cool, but I hope using the two screens doesn't hurt gameplay. When I play Arkanoid in MarcaDS the two screens render it virtually unplayable. I hope it contains a "classic version".

    Anyway, the Paddle plugs into Slot2.
    The box-out is the NES paddle controller which came with that version.

    If it plays like the original this is bound to go down in history as a classic... remake
