oh damn they got Mario in the cigarette spaceship
shit was intense. mf had me on the edge of my seat.
Damn, she wasn't lying, that was Alleyway (1989)!
A monotonus breakout clone, each level takes what feels like forever to clear out, and mind you, there are whopping 24 of them! I think this game could've been faster in pace, and maybe had a background music to liven things up (the BG music is only present during bonus stage). One compliment I can give is a few gimmicks to make this a little more interesting, like wrapping blocks and blocks moving down with time, but it's not enough to save this game from being quite average.
