Review:

This game was released about 15 years ago, back then it was called arkanoid :). Anyway this game is really a clone of the great game arkanoid. Pop 'n' Bounce was released in '97 and it was dumped this year during all that controversy which ended with the end of NeoCharity. I don't think the game has any story line but im not sure.

Your aim in this game is to continually deflect a little ball with your paddle (kind of like one player Pong) and knock out the different coloured blocks at the top of the screen. During the game various power ups fall down for you to collect, most of the time you end up missing the ball because your trying to get a damn powerup :) The effects these power ups give range from making your paddle bigger, giving you lasers (very cool), adding to balls and a variety of others. The game also has a cool two player mode which takes up a lot of my time.

The graphics in this game are nice and colorful, the characters are well drawn in the usual anime fashion which is standard for most Neo Geo games. I happen to like the graphics in the game and although not overly impressive the get the job done.

For me if the music doesn't annoy me then there's nothing wrong with it, there's only a few video games in history that have music that you would listen to for leisure (e.g. Castlevania 4, Magician Lord) and although the music in Pop 'n' bounce isn't in that group its not bad either.

The game plays like a dream and if you make a mistake its your fault not because the controls suck (like some games). Pop 'n' Bounce is a really good game, easily the best puzzle game on the Neo Geo and one of my favourite games on the system.
