I just use the left mouse button. That starts the game and fires the ball.

no joy with my logitec wireless mouse

I use a wired usb mouse. Checked the space bar on starting and that changes to the icons page. After that only the left mouse button works to start the game.

I've just downloaded it from, from rdave13's link.

Installed it and played without any problems. Win7 64bit.

Sorry, forgot to add: Microsoft wireless USB mouse and Logitech keyboard. Left mouse button to fire ball, space to change and esc to exit.

I used to love Arkanoid. Think we used to play it on an arcade machine, but I may be wrong.

2nd link here is a crappy Flash version, but better ports may be available.

click here

A clone version was called Aquanoid

tried version 2 but kept going to a not available web page, looking for that one now any help there.
