    1. Overview
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Arkanoid was developed by the Taito Corporation as a clone of the popular Atari 
    game Break Out. This game has you controlling a ship whose mission is to break 
    a multitude of colorful blocks to advance to the next round. Sounds simple in 
    premise but Arkanoid was one of the most difficult games of the period and 
    remains so to this day. 
    
    One or two players control the ships as they move right and left across the 
    bottom of the screen while attempting to bounce a ball back up to the blocks 
    above. To better control the ship the game featured a pack in controller dubbed 
    the Vaus Controller which featured a wheel you would turn to the left or right 
    to control the ship. The goal is to clear the level of the blocks and advance 
    to the next stage while competing for points in two player all cultivating in 
    the final boss battle. 
    
    What looks like a simple Pong rip-off is actually a fun game and a rare one at 
    that; an original cart and Vaus controller can bring a pretty penny in good 
    condition. While difficultly might take the place of length it can still be 
    enjoyed to this day.

    Game Mechanics
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    From the included game manual:
    
    Their earth-like planet was devastated by a brutal attack of aliens. The
    survivors roam the galaxy on their photon spaceship Arkanoid in search of a
    new home. The Arkanoid is attacked and the survivors barely escape in the Vaus
    spacecraft. Instead of finding safety, they are now trapped in a deadly space
    labyrinth.
    
    If they are to be saved, you must summon all your courage and skill to shatter
    the space walls and defeat the merciless enemy forces!
    
    
    From the game:
    
    The Era and time of this story are unknown. After the mothership "Arkanoid" was 
    destroyed, a spacecraft "Vaus" scrambled away from it...
    
    But only to be trapped in space warped by someone...
    
    Arkanoid is short on story to say the least eh?
    
    The game has a simple idea behind it. Your main goal is to control the paddle 
    which is actually a spacecraft named Vaus to destroy the blocks that someone is 
    using to block your way. Clear each round to advance to the next.
    
    To help you along the way is a small arsenal of items that do everything from 
    increase the length of Vaus to equipping the ship to shoot lasers that can 
    destroy the blocks. Arkanoid can be played alone or with a friend using any 
    combination of NES controllers and\or Vaus controllers. Try to get more points 
    then the other player!

    Controls
    ~~~~~~~~
    
    
    D-Pad: used to control Vaus left or right if you don't use the Vaus Controller.
    
    [A]: Fires the lasers you can get from items and also launches the ball from 
    Vaus.
    
    [B]: Not used
    
    Start: Used to confirm choice on main menu and to pause the game.     
    
    Select: Moves cursor on the main menu.
    
    Vaus control wheel: turn it left or right to move Vaus. How much and how fast 
    you move the wheel correlates to the ship on screen.
    
    Vaus action button: Fires the lasers you can get from items and also launches 
    the ball from Vaus.

    Blocks
    ~~~~~~
    
    Arkanoid features 10 different color blocks that you will come across in any of 
    the 35 rounds. Each color is worth a different amount of points when destroyed 
    and some require a changing amount of hits to destroy or even none at all. The 
    chart below details the info you need to know.

    Capsules
    ~~~~~~~~
    
    Arkanoid features a small arsenal of items that can help you consisting of 
    seven different abilities. The chart below explains.....
    
    ~~Color~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Ability~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    | Dark Blue                  Enlarges the length of Vaus            |
    | Light Blue                 Splits the ball into three             |
    | Orange                     Slows the speed of the ball down       |
    | Grey                       Gives you an extra life(Vaus)          | 
    | Yellow                     "Sticky" Vuas; catch the ball          |
    | Pink                       Opens escape route to end round early  |
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    
    ~~~~~~
    Debris
    ~~~~~~
    
    Debris are the pieces of the planets that were destroyed. They "spawn" from the 
    top of the area from gates in the boundaries. Have different effects on the 
    ship like wild control and difficult aiming. Destroy them simply by hitting 
    them with the ball like a block.

    4. Round layouts 
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Below are diagrams that show the layout of all the rounds found in Arkanoid. 
    Shown in the blocks is a letter that denotes color\points: W\hite, O\range, 
    L\t.Blue, G\reen, R\ed, B\lue, P\ink, Y\ellow, S\ilver and g\old. An X denotes 
    an empty space.
    
    Shown after each diagram is a quick run down of the points available in each 
    level; mainly for two player purposes.

    Round Thirty-six: Boss Doh
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    No blocks to clear in this level just a boss named Doh. He appears like a red 
    floating head in the middle of the area and shoots debris at Vaus in groups of 
    three that follow and attempt to ram Vaus. Contact with this debris will cause 
    Vaus to be destroyed. To defeat Doh avoid the debris and hit him with the ball 
    16 times.
