Arkanoi-8

The beginnings of an Arkanoid clone, based on a nice pixel art mockup by @DavitMasia.

Controls:
- left/right: move paddle
- z: start; release ball
- up: SECRET CHEATER LEVEL SKIP

Details:

This first version has the basic game loop -- break tiles with the ball, clearing the board will move to the next level -- but is missing just about everything else so far.  No powerups, no enemies, no actual endgame (if you beat the last level, current #7, it just loops back to #1), no proper title screen, etc.  Musical bits are dredged up from childhood memory and so are probably not spot on.

I hope to keep cracking away at it, get more of that added, but if anyone wants to have a go at doing so themselves they're welcome to it as well.
