Two other power-ups can be attained: Laser, which allows you to shoot out bricks while still bouncing a ball, and one which will allow you to warp to the next level by means of a small opening to the right of the paddle. Tournament Arkanoid is a cocktail table, with paddles and buttons on two ends, and when the next player is up, the screen flips to accommodate
