Arkanoid: Revenge of Doh (1987)

Arkanoid: Revenge of Doh is an arcade game released by Taito in 1987 as a sequel to the classic Arkanoid. The game was a critical and commercial success, and is still considered one of the best arcade games of all time.


The gameplay in Revenge of Doh is very similar to the original Arkanoid. The player controls a paddle at the bottom of the screen and must use it to bounce a ball up and destroy all of the bricks at the top of the screen. The bricks come in a variety of colors, and each color represents a different type of brick. Some bricks are easy to destroy, while others take multiple hits to destroy.

Revenge of Doh introduces several new features to the Arkanoid formula. One of the most significant new features is the addition of warp gates. Warp gates are special gates that appear at the bottom of the screen after completing a level or collecting a certain power-up. When the player enters a warp gate, they are transported to a different level. This adds a lot of variety to the game, as it allows the player to experience different level layouts and challenges.

Another new feature in Revenge of Doh is the addition of moving bricks. Some of the bricks in the game move from side to side, making them more difficult to hit. This adds an extra layer of challenge to the game, as the player must time their shots carefully in order to hit the moving bricks.

Revenge of Doh also features a number of new power-ups. These power-ups can give the player a variety of advantages, such as making the ball larger, making the paddle longer, or giving the player the ability to shoot lasers.
