Fakeanoid is a free game which is a Breakout/Arkanoid clone. The game features 100 levels and the ability to use your own MP3 files as in-game music.

It's also one of the few games left in the world to support MOD files for in-game music. MOD files, for those of you who don't know, are small music files created with loops, very much like Acid Pro does.

MOD files have the advantage of being very small, and still sounding quite good. This is not surprising, considering they were originally created for the Amiga and Atari ST computers back in the 1990s. The downside is that most MOD files tend to sound very repetitive due to the limited number of samples that can be used.

Originally, I charged $5 for the full version of Fakeanoid in an effort to cover the bandwidth costs associated with this site. Fakeanoid is now entirely free, but if you wish to help support the website by making a donation, you can do so by clicking the PayPal button on the left or you can click on an advertisement that links to something you're interested in. Any support you can offer is greatly appreciated.

Installing Fakeanoid

Installing Fakeanoid is very straightforward. Simply download the ZIP file and decompress it using your favourite decompression utility (I recommend PowerArchiver, but Windows can even decompress ZIP files natively).

Once you've decompressed the file, go to the "Fakeanoid" directory that has been created and double click the "Fakeanoid" icon. It's that simple!

You'll also notice there's a "Fakeanoid Config" icon. This is where you can set up your options, including the difficulty level, whether you want the game to run in a window, and if you'd like it to play your own MP3 files instead of the included music.

You may also want to check out the documentation included with Fakeanoid. It's a PDF file (you can use Acrobat Reader to view it), written circa 2002, but still very relevant.
