For those who live under a rock and don't know what Arkanoid is, it is an evolution of the traditional paddle game popularized by Breakout, where you control a paddle to bounce a ball in order to destroy bricks. Arkanoid adds a lot to the formula, such as including special bricks and many power-ups which can extend your paddle, multiply the balls or even give you the ability to shoot.
Imagine a game which plays just like those special stages from the first Sonic the Hedgehog. Instead of controlling the ball, however, you must rotate the maze itself to guide the ball to the goal.
The Irritating Maze
Base on some Japanese game show, this game has you controlling a electric stick (which appears as a sphere), which you must guide through a labyrinthine maze which certainly lives up to the game's title.
Ultra classic game, you control a blue marble and must take it to the goal before your timer runs out. On your way you must avoid all sorts of hazards and negotiate through the treacherous terrain. You have no lives, once the timer runs out it's game over.
A spin-off of the Darius series, you control a robotic golden dragon who must traverse through a series of dungeons. The stages are randomly generated, and your course changes depending or your performance. The story will change every time you play and what will happen also depends on your performance, giving the game around 100 different endings.
Though the game is only Japanese, a fully translated prototype ROM exists. Alternatively, you can also look for the SNES conversion (European version is in English), which may be preferable if you don't like the trackball control scheme.
