Arkanoid (Aftermarket)

Bootleg Arkanoid boardset that is working

Aftermarket Arkanoid arcade game board. This is a third party Arakanoid board, but works on a similar pinout as the original (the spinner inputs may be different). We tested on our test bench with a Taito adapter and it works fine and plays just like the original board although we don't have a spinner control to test the inputs (they should work fine).

Note that this board is bowed a bit but working.

Quick Game Facts

Probably considered the next great version of "Breakout" Arkanoid became a fun hit. Even today people like having an Arkanoid game in the home or game room.

Coin-Op Overview

Using a spinner, you move your paddle to reflect the ball towards the bricks. Some bricks take a few hits to break apart, and occasionally a special reward is dropped. These can include expanding your paddle, laser beams, or the ability to catch the ball. The ball can also break into three balls to help you break through the level faster.
