Arkanoid - Revenge of Doh © 1988 Imagine Software

The huge alien spacecraft, ZARG, has entered our universe. It is known to contain the dimension controlling force DOH, a being believed to have been destroyed forty thousand years ago in the Arkanoid Spacewars.

Doh has metamorphosised into an even greater adversary and now threatens the very universe. Only your skill and split second timing can now save us!

Deploy the new Vaus II spacecraft and may fortune follow you.

Adding to the fun and excitement of ARKANOID. With many extra Vaus effects and a secret additional alien, this is the most thrilling reaction game since ARKANOID. With so many improvements you just won't be able to stop playing.

You are aided in your attempts, with energy capsules which are hidden beneath certain bricks. These capsules are released upon the destruction of the brick. Each capsule has a different power, denoted by a letter painted on it's side. These powers are as follows:

B - Breaks through the side wall, giving the Vaus an alternative escape route to the next level.

C - Enables you to catch the bolt, move to the desired position and then fire.

D - Disrupts the bolt into five separate components, thereby giving you five times the effect.

E - Expands the Vaus, giving you more chance to deflect the energy bolt.

G - Gives the Vaus a ghost, which trails along behind the Vaus but cannot deflect the energy bolt.

L - Arms your Vaus with a laser, allowing it to shoot through the bricks and aliens.

M - Breaks the bolt into three separate components, which regenerate when each one is lost.

P - Awards you an extra life.

R - Reduces your Vaus making it harder to deflect the energy bolt.

S - Slows down the speed of the energy bolt making it easier to deflect.

T - This causes a twin of the Vaus to appear. These craft are identical and give you twice the effect.

Special Capsule - This bestows a random special power on the Vaus.
