This game got a bad score everywhere and I am undecided about buying it... if you already got this game please give your impressions! The same happens with Tennis game...

It's not that great. Just a basic Breakout clone with Mario characters thrown in as bonus stages. The first time I played it, I got bored rather quickly.

I love Breakout..and Alleyway!'s the type of game i play,when waiting for the bus,or on a lunch break!
But nothing beats the Gameboy version of Tetris!



I had the cartridge for this game originally and got rid of it as fast as I could. It's really tedious, and in desperate need of music. The only fond memory I have is the bonus stages.

Its a nice game to play when you are waiting for a bus or just want something to do to kill time. I usually play it while I am waiting for the bus. But if you are looking for something a bit more than you can just pass on this title.

I thought Alleyway was too slow and basic for my liking.

Kirby's Block Ball is the best of the breakout genre. Get that.

Edgey, Gumshoe, Godot, Sissel, Larry, then Mia, Franziska, Maggie, Kay and Lynne.

I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing happens!


If you like Breakout/Arkanoid type games it's pretty fun at least for that cheap price. I have a real cart of it and while it does rotate the maps after a few stages it makes them harder each time to make the challenge stick and grow as you go along.

Kirby's Block Ball coming next year though has a lot more maps and styles to it, it's the better of the two but Alleyway is fine.

Jardinains is better

I programmed a simple tool that copies all Switch screenshots from an SD card and places them to folders according to the game:

I like Alleyway but I don't LOVE it. It's very, very basic. Basically if it weren't for the Nintendo references, it would probably be pretty mediocre. Every now and again, though, it's fun to play through a stage or two to kill 10 minutes.

When I close my eyes, I see pixilated blood.


Alleyway is a ok game. If you just want to break some blocks on the go then this is good at what it does and does add some (keyword: SOME) quirks over Grandpa Block Breaking Game, Breakout. If you want a game that has more than 1 thing to do in it then get AlphaBounce or wait until Kirby's Block Ball comes out.

And yes I have it. Talk about an impulse buy.

What is the J files you may ask? Why only the biggest fad of 2023! :D
