Arkanoid (Original) VP8 by Ken Atherton v0.7

From what I've seen, this early-VP gem is the best of all the Breakout-themed VP originals. It's also directly inspired by Breakout's spiritual successor, Arkanoid (Taito, 1986).

After you open the portal and travel to the video game mode on the left, you then control the paddle with the flipper keys. It's a bit of a challenge moving around quickly enough, but you get some help via bouncy areas near the drain.

What's particularly cool is that the starting brick setups will cycle through formations as you complete them, just like the original game. The authentic sound effects are there too, rounding out a lovely little original. --@Ike Savage
