Information on dominob

0.119u2 [Tomasz Slanina, David Haywood]


- Button 1 = 'Use Domino'. The ball will bounce along the bricks in a horizontal line, without coming down.

- Button 2 = 'Use Rocket'. Your paddle will jump to the top of the screen then back down, destroying everything in its path.


- This is a hacked up version of Arkanoid with high colour backgrounds and gameplay modifications. It runs on custom Korean hardware. Bonus Lives always at 200000, 500000, then every 300000 (no dipswitch). There are 6 stages of 5 rounds. When these 30 levels are completed, you'll have to complete round 1 of each stage with a smaller bat. When this stage 7 is completed, the game ends but you can't enter your initials if you have achieved a high score! It's funny to see that this game, as 'arkanoid', does NOT allow you to enter "SEX" as initials (which will be replaced by "H !").
