In the game, you have escaped from the destruction of the original Arkanoid mother ship in a small vessel only to be caught in some kind of space distortion. Your primary objective in this game is to use your spaceship, the Vaus, to clear out groups of colorful blocks in space. The blocks that line the top of the board release pills when hit (each pill comes labeled with a coordinating color), and you must catch each pill to successfully unlock its powers. To move on to the next board immediately, catch the purple pill with the letter R and earn 10,000 bonus points in the process. Once on this second board you'll face even bigger challenges, as some blocks will now require multiple hits to be destroyed. Level 3 introduces new gold bricks that cannot be eliminated.
