Play Arkanoid-Retro Now!

Arkanoid is back! Re-live some classic arcade action, updated to work on current PC's! Take control of the Vaus and destroy all of the blocks to advance to the next level! This game is ad free!

Arkanoid is an arcade game released by Taito in 1986. It expanded upon Atari's Breakout games of the 1970s by adding power-ups, different types of bricks, a variety of level layouts, and visual layering and depth. The title refers to a doomed mother ship from which the player's ship, the Vaus, escapes.

Arkanoid-Retro tries to stay true to the original Arkanoid arcade game as close as possible, and brings the game it to modern PC's from Windows 7 to Windows 10.

If your not sure if you want to install the game we have a demo of it online to play for free. The demo allows you to play the game, but there isn't a save feature, nor highscore saves.
