Bricks anywhere?


My dad mentioned that he used to really like this old game called “Bricks” and I thought I'd show him how google could find anything - literally. Well, alas, I couldn't quite find it! At least not the exact same good 'ol arcade format I wanted it in. Just as a quick intro - it was (is?) a game which started off with a row of bricks on the top, a bouncing ball which would knock off the bricks one by one and a paddle at the bottom with which to smack the ball back at the bricks.


Anyway, it would be great to get my hands on it if I could. If anyone has any pointers, pass 'em on.

    Search for "Break Out". Very popular game back in the day with *tons* of variations and ports.

    aka Arkanoid – a good Google term.

    Do a search on google for DX ball, it’s a pretty neat Arkanoid clone.

    It sounds like you want something closer to the original, but Ricochet is a fun replica of the concept. You may find it at http://www.reflexive.net/index.htm.

    One of the few games I’ve purchased in the last few years (too old for most I guess :-)).

  6. Why try everything so difficult? I learned something from my wife, just type it in your address bar in IE.

    Ofcourse you have to search for the correct word! 😉

    For example, try "arkanoid"

    You may get MSN Search ór get http://www.arkanoid.com
