We first became interested in this project because of our love for the popular arcade game Arkanoid. It was this that spurred us on to create our own version - 'Cantneroid'. We decided to program Cantneroid because we wanted a final project that would provide both a challenge and entertainment. We strove to create a solid gameplay by incorporating sound, multiple levels, and a comfortable means to control the paddle.
The object of the game is to eliminate all of the bricks on the level by hitting the ball with the paddle. Each time the ball is dropped a life is lost. We created the game to be played on a 5 inch portable television and the paddle is controlled by a Sega Genesis controller. There are 3 levels that the player must beat to win the game - the levels get progressively harder and the user has 4 lives with which to complete them.
