its like nervous brickdown i think
the paddle on the bottle slides left to right
and theres a ball that you have to keep bouncing around
and to hit the bricks up above

Sweetness. I am really tired of playing the Japanese version.

That was a rumor. The US version DOES support the Taito paddle controller!

Wow. Amazing how "arkanoid" needs to be described. I used to describe "brick-breaker" games as "Like an Arkanoid clone." And everyone knew what i meant.

I'm getting old.

Well, neither Arkanoid or Space Invaders Ex has been dumped at any of the usually spots I visit. I would think it should be soon, though.

From what I understand, it DOES support the paddle, they just don't sell the paddle with the game like they did in Japan.

If this version is the same as the (J) version but with English (and I see no reason why it wouldn't be), it kinda sucks for a couple reasons. First is the lame borders on both sides of the screen.....why'd they do that?!? Second is the low framerate making the ball move in a choppy fashion.

Do yourself a favor and just play the Arkanoid clone in that Midnight Play Pack (#2345), it's MUCH better version of Arkanoid, even if it is a clone.

    i may not be a good homebrew dev yet but i personally think gridlauncher was much much better than the shit, bog standard homebrew menu

  • AliceCE @ AliceCE:
    it had way more personality, the standard homebrew menu feels like an 3ds applet, developed quickly and without any quirks

    too bad luma just so happens to completely break gridlauncher , and the fact that it's not maintained anmore

    hell, even the wii homebrew menu gives me heavy nostalgia, even if it's barely, if at all customiable, but the 3ds
    homebrew launcher is ass
