Beloved MSXers:

I've spent more then 20 years playing Arkanoid, and there's no way I can go beyond round 15 (normally I'm dead way before). When the balls is at maximum speed, it's almost impossible to play. It's a bit frustrating, honestly.
Well, perhaps it's just me that I'm not a good player, it could be the case! Big smile

Whatever, I've written a patch to make the ball take way longer to reach its maximum speed. The game is more playable this way, but probably slightly less fun too.

Very nice patch, although when you start, I see that there is a string saying SP next to the GAME START text.

Thanks!
Yes, I added the "SP" (Speed Patch) to tell easily that this is a patched version, different from the original.
