Arkanoid

I am looking for the original version on the classical game Arkanoid. Im not sure that the game origianally was named 'Arkanoid' so if you know the original name I would be happy to know it. Anyways, my question is, where can I find a free copy of this? If 'Arkanoid' arent freeware I would like to know where I can download a shareware/demo copy of it.

Thanks in advance,

actually, Arkanoid was origilanly called 'Breakout' and I played it on my Atari machine.

you can get a very good (free) version called 'dx-ball' form:
ftp://ftp.pcworld.com/pub/games/arcade/dxball17.exe
or a more simple one:
http://www.hk.download.net/arcade/roms/arkanoid.zip

enjoy the game, (I know I do...)

No, it's not the original but it's much better (DX-Ball). I know 'cause I'm addicted to it. I play atleast an hour every day.
Get it. It's just 600Kb and I promise you that you won't be disappointed.

Maybe I have it in my archives. Do you mean Arkanoid with CGA
interface, 4 lives and pad is really FAT, level 30 (or 31) has
big head that spits some things ... ?

Hi busuka,

I dont really know exactly what it looks like because it was a long time since I played it and then it wasnt even on PC. However, I want the original version and if you think that that is what youve got and if its free I would like to try it.

Thanks in advance,

Hi hilit,

Thanks for the link, I found the game there. But, I dont recognise the file extensions of the files and I dont think they are meant for PC. I forgot to say I wanted it for PC. If these files are meant for a PC, please tell me how to make it to work.

Thanks in advance,
Dedsi

Busuka,

thanks but no thanks, I dont want/need Arkanoid: Revenge of DoH for now. I take it that your copy of Arkanoid are the original one, or the oldest one yet, so I will accept your answer.

Thanks,
dedsi
