Arkanoid - Revenge of Doh (or Arkanoid 2) is a legendary 1987 breakout arcade game released by Taito and converted to several home computers in 1988. Is the sequel to Arkanoid game. This is the definitive bat and ball game. A real classic much like its predecessor!
 
Review
Arkanoid IIMysterious enemy known as DOH (from the first part) has returned to seek vengeance on the Vaus space vessel. You must once again take control of the Vaus (paddle) and overcome many challenges in order to destroy DOH once and for all. Revenge of Doh sees the player battle through 34 rounds, taken from a grand total of 64.
There is a little deviation from the original Arkanoid, and that is the power ups. By knocking out certain bricks, capsules drop down. These do all sorts when you catch them, from making your bat bigger to running a multi-ball sequence. To add a bit of spice there are also some little space invaders to hinder your progress. These tend to deflect balls and send them in a totally different direction. Arkanoid 2 is the definitive bat and ball game and this time the Spectrum conversion did it justice!

The Apple IIGS conversion looks pretty good and close to the original. The details are wonderful, with nice colors and beautiful stage details.. Paddle and rest of the sprites move fast and quite smooth too as expected (not that smooth as in the Amiga version).
Sound is great, offering a few nicely composed sort tunes in the main menu and at the beginning of the stages. Sound effects are nice to hear too as in all home-computer conversions!
