Arkanoid 4000 Arco 4000 is a Breakout game. So your job is to use your paddle and bounce the ball so that you remove all blocks in the level. Once that happens, you proceed to the next level. If you loose your last ball, it's game over.

Unlike other games, certain power-ups survive a player death and a level completion. So, for example, when you have a fast ball and a short paddle, you can only get rid of it by collecting slow-ball and paddle-expander power-ups.

Special is also when the power-ups appear, as they don't appear random on the destruction of the bricks, but only on special power-up bricks.

The game offers 3 different level settings with plenty of levels in each setting. [source:mobygames]
