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. It was widely
ported to contemporary systems and followed by a series of remakes and sequels,
including the 1987 arcade game Arkanoid: Revenge of Doh. Arkanoid revived the
Breakout concept, resulting in many clones and similar games for home computers,
even over a decade later.
