Trivia / Arkanoid

  • Newer Than They Think: The ball being "stuck" to the paddle at the beginning of the round? Arkanoid was the first game to have that; in all Breakout clones before that the ball materialized out of thin air somewhere between the bat and bricks.
  • No Export for You: PlayStation versions of Returns are Japan-only.
  • Port Overdosed: An exceptionally widespread game. Appeared on just about every platform of the 1980s and many since.
