NeverNoid is an Arkanoid clone. Although there are tons of free games of this type I felt I could do better
(Any programmer can second that)
The name NeverNoid is a bit of a wordjoke
"Nooit" is dutch for "Never" and is pronouncedthe same way as "Noid". "Never nooit" is also an expression you hear in The Netherlands sometimes and simply means "Never ever".
The game itself hardly needs explanation, but here's some general hints.
There are 12 types of powerups/downs:
magnet (sticky ball)
speed up ball
slow down ball
slow down paddle
At some level in the game one or more floaters will enter the game. When hit your ball will instantly change direction. All they do is nag you.
A unique feature is the energy bar. Every time you pick up a powerup (or powerdown) the energy bar charges fully. During play the energy slowly drops and once it's depleted
your powers go with it.
There are 40 unique maps with 5 levels of difficulty
Basically this means it will run on any system using windows. If the game runs too slow, please uncheck some features in the options screen
