Arkamoin 🧱

Just another block breaker. I wanted to make one for a long time now. This one is tiny (well, it's for the PICO-8 fantasy console so yeah, it's tiny), fast-paced and unforgiven.

The first three stages are always static. After that you get randomized levels. The blocks with the exclamation marks need two hits and are shooting at you when you remove them. Every few levels there is a boss block to defeat.

There are four different extras to pick up:

Laser (destroy bricks in front of the bat)

Super ball (moves through bricks)

Closes the wall at the bottom of the screen for a short time so it's save for the ball to hit the bottom edge.

Glue that glues the ball on your bat for two times

To compensate the missing paddle controls hold x to move faster!

Have fun!

Or use a controller.


Play it right here in the browser at the top of the screen.
Or download the cart and play it in your PICO-8 fantasy console.
Or search for "arkamoin" in Splore of your PICO-8 fantasy console.

I have been playing this quite a bit on my rg351v. Excellent game!


Thank you for playing Arkamoin! Now I need to get an rg351v :D

I highly recomend it! Check out some videos from retro game corps on it, he gives some good tips for new buyers. I got mine after checking his videos out. Nowadays, there are newer handhelds which you could find more interesting.
