''Like movie remakes of 80's TV shows, legwarmer-wearing teenage girls and synth-pop emo bands, games have jumped on the retro-trend bandwagon. It seems these days nothing's harder to come by than a good idea, so lots of companies are trotting out their old stuff, tarted up for the new millennium. Sometimes remakes are a bad idea (anyone see the Dukes of Hazzard movie?), but in the case of classic Taito arcade game Arkanoid, the idea couldn't be better.''
