Arkanoid vs Giganoid - NOW VOID VIDEO!

THIS EPISODE IS NOW NULL AND VOID DUE TO AN OVERSITE BY MYSELF OF THE FACT THAT I HAVE ALREADY DONE A "VS" EPISODE FEATURING GIGANOID WHICH I FORGOT ABOUT, IT HAS NOW BEEN REPLACED WITH A BRAND NEW EPISODE (PLEASE SEE RETROGAMING DISCUSSION GENERAL SECTION FOR NEW VIDEO).
MY APPOLOGIES.

NOTE TO ADMINISTRATOR, Please delete this thread as no longer valid for voting, thank you.

Zeus.

You should put all these in one thread.

Different games, different chapter and it would be a nightmare for me to count the votes if all chapters were under the same thread and the thread name would remain the same so no'one would know a new compare vid is up,...basically it's far easier this way for me

I always used to play Arkanoid in the penny arcade and enjoyed it on C64 as well, but Giganoid could be the first ever game I saw on Amiga, and I was really blown to bits by the gfx and the digitised sfx.

Impossible to say which on I prefer. Different eras, different memories and preferences.

I think I'll have to side with Arkanoid. But I guess I should play it in NTSC for more of a 'tate experience?
Interesting to see who the devs on Giganoid are - didn't they connect with Discovery later?

I completely forgot about Giganoid. I rember playing it a lot in school on the acorn archimedes as I I used to love the sound effects on it! I forgot the name of the game and didn't even know it was on the amiga too so I'll be sure to check that out again after all these years!

I've played a lot of Arkanoid in the arcades but not so much originally on the amiga so will have to test out before I can post really to this poll...

Dunno. But i’d rather stick a fork in my knee cap than play any of them.

Is there really any comparison? Arkanoid is an all time classic and Giganoid is a shameless, poorly made, rip-off...
