Electranoid is a Breakout-style game meant to be like Arkanoid (NES). All the original features or Arkanoid are emulated, and a few new ones have been added. You control a paddle that rebounds the ball up to break the walls, and every so often capsules fall as bonuses. Capsules include the familiar: extend, slow, catch, disrupt, laser, break, 1up, etc. But there are also some additions like missile and shrink. Also, like Arkanoid, there are enemies that come from the top of the screen and mess up your ball's trajectory. It's a fun take on Arkanoid, but there isn't anything that special about it. There are cute animations at the beginning of each level, and in-between ball drops, but after you've seen them they become more annoying than entertaining.
The music for Electranoid is nice. It has the typical twang of FM synthesis, but it's fitting for the game.
