So maybe we're trying to re-invent the wheel.. a good Arkanoid kernel already exists?
I have Off the Wall and can confirm that it is not sideways. It is similar to Arkanoid in that there are power-ups. However, there's only a few rows of bricks, and the ball breaks them in very un-Arkanoid-like ways, taking chunks away at a time.
