Review: Alleyway

Has anyone ever not played Breakout? I mean, it came out in 1976. If you haven't played Breakout or a Breakout clone, you must be a time traveler. If that's the case, congratulations, time traveler, strange visitor from Earth's past! You are wasting your time reading the internet, just like the rest of us in the future!
If you have played Breakout, then you've played Alleyway. It's Breakout with Mario, except for the fact that you barely ever see Mario and could be excused for not thinking he's in this game at first glance.

I don't know what else to say but this game controls easily and has the typical monochromatic graphics you would expect from a Game Boy game. Some levels are kind of annoying when there's only one block left that you can't reach somehow, but that's Breakout.

Anyway, if you're dying for a Breakout clone to play on your 3DS, this is serviceable and cheap. If you're not, look elsewhere.

Final Grade: D+
