There are dozens of Arkanoid clones around but this one delivers an original new take on the game by putting an Egyptian spin on it. Like all versions of Arkanoid the gameplay is very simple and it's a case of just blasting blocks by bouncing a ball off a paddle.

Because ScaraBall is all set in 3D, however, the task is much more challenging than usual as you need to destroy blocks that are on top of each other.

The graphics within the game are excellent with all the backdrops and blocks being inspired by ancient Egypt. The three dimensional element to the game really works and the quality of the textures of the different blocks are impressive.

ScaraBall requires strategic thinking and a quick hand. You can't drop the ball, and you have to trigger a chain of events as you play. As you make your journey, you will follow myths of Ancient Egypt that will lead you through perilous dangers in order to restore the long lost gifts of Amon Ra.
