Arkanoid tournament for A500

I was wondering if someone would be agree to replace the 32 extra levels of the 1.05 cracked version of this legendary game by the levels of the coin-op "Tournament" version in MAME.

1.05 version in the TOSEC set is NTSC but i found years ago a PAL version of the game so both version would be used.

I don't think this kind of replacement would be difficult for a specialist. I don't have the knowledge to do that by myself otherwise it would have been done since a long time lol

The amiga convertion of Arkanoid is really impressive and i think it would be a very nice idea !

What is your opinion about that ? Is someone interesting ?

I just wrote to Eric Reinhart at http://dark-water-studios.com/ to ask him the level data structure in order to implement new ones. Who knows, maybe he will answer me .

Eric Reinhart just answered me :

"Hello Lionel,

Yes, it is a surprising request :-) I am afraid that I do not remember any of the details you are asking for (Hey, it's nearly 25 years) and I also do not have access to the source code anymore.
But it is nice to hear that there is still interest in the game :-) Maybe you can dig out someone else from DiscoverySoftware (who were the company behind the Amiga version). I was only working as a contractor on the game and have no idea what the the guys from Discovery are doing today.

Best of luck,


I am going to try to contact the other members of the team so . Thanks again Eric !
