    Changing the "logo" (actually it's my profile picture) to a new one that was drawn by bebn legg from SMW Central. I just remembered that my community profile still had the old one.
  • Reviews
    I want to make it more apparent, without having to read the whole review, that there is a way to fix the glitches so that others don't review this patch based on a glitched version. To give the patch it's proper due.

Arkanoid Revised

Hack of Arkanoid

Description:

This hack is for the japanese version of the game.

In this hack, the game’s graphics have been improved and the game design was revised with more modern play kept in mind. More sense is made out of the continue and level skip cheats, which were almost always used on every play, so now those features have been properly adapted into the main game.

The list of changes is as follows:

ADDED:

  • holding the B button greatly increases vaus’ move speed
  • new warp pill system

CHANGED:

  • continue option available from the title menu after a game over (the cursor is moved to it automatically to prevent “new game” accidents)
  • starts with 6 lives (on new game and continue)
  • displays up to 9 lives on the HUD (originally only 6)
  • graphics

NEW WARP PILL SYSTEM:

  • the warp pill no longer creates the warp gate automatically
  • grabbing a warp pill sends it to the inventory
  • pressing SELECT spends a warp pill and opens a warp gate
  • entering the warp gates sends you 2 levels ahead instead of just skipping the current level
  • starts with 3 warp pills on a new game
  • the amount of warp pills is kept upon continuing
  • warp gate point bonus reduced from 10,000 to 5,000
  • displays up to 6 warp pills on the HUD (new feature)
  • chances for warp pill drop slightly increased

BUGFIX:

  • now pausing works at the start of each level, not just when the ball is moving
  • can continue even after watching the demo (previously would send to level 1)

REMOVED:

  • cheat codes removed (continuing and level skip)
  • 2 players mode removed

changelog:

  • v1.03 fixed the original bug where pausing glitched a destroying block
  • v1.02 continue option bug fix
  • v1.01 improved title screen
  • v1.00 release
