Can this Arkanoid clone match the block-breaking fun of its predecessors?

Arkanoid clones were two-a-penny many years ago, particularly on home computers; however gamers have not been treated to many games like this in recent times. It would seem the timing is perfect for Gameloft to bring the first game in their successful...

EU WiiWare Update: Block Breaker Deluxe and Cocoto Fishing Master

You’ll have to forgive us but there’s a tangible feeling of déjà vu in the air here at WiiWare World, because this week’s releases happen to be the exact same ones North America was graced only a few short days ago.

That’s right – European Wii owners can indulge in some fantasy-fishing with Cocoto Fishing Master or bust some blocks with Block Breaker Deluxe. Or both! Cocoto Fishing..

North America’s WiiWare catalogue has been swelled by two new releases today.

The first is Block Breaker Deluxe, which retails for 800 points and is an enhanced version of an old mobile phone game. But don’t let that put you off – by all accounts the title is jolly good fun. As always, our review will follow shortly after we’ve play tested it to destruction. The second game is a rather more..

GameLoft Brings More to WiiWare

GameLoft, who you might know as the company bringing their mobile game Block Breaker Deluxe to WiiWare, is bringing three more games to the service. Two of these are also mobile phone ports, but one of them is a new game.

The PEGI has rated Midnight Bowling, which we assume will be the first title to see release in Europe. It will be a slightly upgraded port of the original mobile game where you..

Block Breaker Deluxe Coming to WiiWare

Gameloft isn’t really a company that you’d associate with top-rank videogaming, thanks to the fact that it has only really dabbled in the notoriously inconsistent world of mobile phone software. That said, it’s one of the better companies currently working in that sphere of interactive entertainment.

Looking to expand into the domestic market, Gameloft has announced that it will be releasing..

But for 800 points, Slionr? You'd have more fun with a SNES or Genesis game.

This seems more interesting than the other Gameloft games. There TV Show King game seems alright but the other two, not so much. I Have this game called Winbrick 96 on my computer (first of a series) and this reminds me of that. Then again, it is a Breakout/Arkanoid clone.

@ pdrydia: LOL

You can buy this same game on your ipod at Itunes for 5 bucks. But I wouldn't buy either game cause i dont think they're much fun.

Um, is there a reason why nearly every Wiiware game is 280-something blocks in file size? Esp the 2D games...

They really need to compress the graphics/audio in these games, because I know it's not the program code and level data - They should use vectors instead of bitmaps; midi-synth instead of wave - I only have 48 blocks available on my Wii, and I don't feel like "swapping" files to the SD card either, unless something really good like SMRPG or Tetris Wiiware comes out.

Arkanoid is enough Breakout for me. I bet Arkanoid is just as good, too. And what's with the Vegas motif and the unnecessary characters?

@StarDust
Alas, the art of writing efficient code and compressing file sizes is long dead. Both this and Cocoto are far, far too big for what they are. This one fits on a CELL PHONE, why is it so huge? All I can think is that Wiiware games are low budget titles, and all that optimization is time consuming and costly. :(

too bad I got this game for free on my Blackberry 2 years ago under the name of Brick Breaker and before that, i had it on my old black and white macintosh when i was in elementary school.

Yep. I read their review last night at 11:45 before going to bed on PSP.

I think their rating was well-justified, honestly.
Their review helped me put things in perspective a bit but I'm still torn. I'm waiting for WWW's Review to get a second opinion since I generally don't trust Critic Reviews. I mostly just want to confirm if my thoughts about the game (i.e., it's sustainability and gameplay) are what I'm expecting from it and if I'll be in for a surprise or not, that's all. I've been thinking this through.

Looks fun and seems like a good value considering the price. I've only played the original Breakout, as well as a Flash-based remake, and my phone won't play games anyways, so I think I'll get this one. Have to wait a little while though, I don't want any thing to distract me during exam week.

Javanoid! That's what this game reminds me of! That game was tons of fun and required you to use your mouse to control the paddle! Tons of fun!

I May buy this soon. Gameloft have done some good games, although my only problem with them is the memory they take up.

I recently bought the sequel on my mobile. It's awesome but i doubt now that i'll buy the WiiWare version. Also bought a Prince of Persia double pack from Gameloft, which had mobile phone versions of Prince of Persia Classic and Two Thrones.

Its a very good, solid wiiware game. The theme is silly, but the gameplay itself is good value for money and is better than arkanoid ds hands down.

8/10 for me all the way
