''Bad Omen'' (a.k.a. ''Devilish'' in the USA) is a very interesting take on the Breakout Clone genre, on the Sega Megadrive/Genesis. The player controls two different paddles (or each player controls one paddle), one of which can change height and orientation.
!!''[=Bad Omen=]'' displays examples of:
* BattleCouple: As stone paddles, the prince and princess work together to smash the blue ball into their enemies.
* BigDamnHeroes: Just when it seems like all hope is lost for the prince & princess to have a happy life, the blue sphere comes to their rescue.
* CueTheSun: The ending.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Most Breakout clones don't have a dark evil/gothic/horror theme... or much of any concrete theme at all.
* DeusExMachina: A mysterious blue sphere, which the prince & princess can use to fight back against evil, just happens to fall from the sky.
* EvilCounterpart: [[spoiler: The final boss shoot out blue spheres similar to your own.]]
* EvilIsVisceral: [[spoiler: The final boss is a beating heart.]]
* ExcusePlot: The introduction text is absolutely hilarious.
* GreenEyedMonster: The evil demon is jealous about the fact that a prince & princess can be happy.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: The evil demon should have thought of something else to turn the prince & princess into.
* LethalLavaLand: The volcano stage, complete with volcanoes shooting out fireballs.
* LuckyCharmsTitle: The name of the demon.
* MysteriousProtector: Nothing is ever explained about the mysterious blue sphere.
* NoOntologicalInertia: [[spoiler: Defeating the evil demon results in the prince & princess turning back into human form once they get back to their kingdom.]]
* TakenForGranite: The prince & princess are cursed to be stone paddles. The cover art indicates that they are actually statues who are stuck onto the bottoms of gigantic stone paddles.
* TurnsRed: All of the bosses of the "defeat" type.
* WombLevel: [[spoiler: The final boss battle takes place in one of these, complete with a big beating demon heart.]]
