Krakout: March featured game
No, not the answer to “What’s the first thing you associate with a builder’s trousers?” Krakout is a Breakout clone with a difference.
We’ve seen this type of game a lot on various systems. Names such as Arkanoid and Batty will be familiar to many old skool gamers but Krakout stands out because it’s different. All those other games play vertical whereas Krakout plays horizontal. One benefit of playing horizontal is a handy little option where you can swap the side your bat resides on, presumably for left-handed players.
