Typed out by How to play Arkanoid(tm) Taito(r) --- The story Their earth-like planet was devastated by a brutal attack of aliens. The survivors roam the galaxy on their photon spaceship Arkanoid in search of a new home. The Arkanoid is attacked and the survivors barely escape in the Vaus spacecraft. Instead of finding safety, they are now trapped in a deadly space labyrinth. If they are to be saved, you must summon all your courage and skill to shatter the space walls and defeat the merciless enemy forces! --- How to play Your mission is to destroy the space walls with the energy ball by strategic movement of your Vaus spacecraft. There are three types of walls: colors, silver and gold. You earn points for their destruction as follows: Silver walls - 50 points times the number of the round. The number of energy ball hits required to break the hard walls follows: 2 times - 1st to 8th round 3 times - 9th to 16th round 4 times - 17th to 24th round 5 times - 25th to 32nd round Gold walls are indestructible. There are 33 rounds in this game. In the final round, a huge enemy fortress will loom before you as the ultimate challenge. While dodging bullets, you must hit the fortress 16 times with your energy ball to destroy it. Color walls white - 50 orange - 60 light blue - 70 green - 80 red - 90 blue - 100 pink - 110 yellow - 120 Some walls contain power CAPSULES. Each time you capture one you'll score 100 points and gain these super powers: orange - slows movement of ball pink - opens warp escape - advance to next round yellow/green - catch the ball and release it red - increase to Vaus laser fire power light blue - splits energy ball into 3 particles grey - awards an extra Vaus dark blue/purple - widens the Vaus controller --- How to operate Be sure your control deck is turned off.
