The Arkanoid game, called "Arkanoid", is a fairly ordinary Arkanoid-style game. Screenshots from version 0.9.1 are seen below (they are from the SDL port, but it looks identical on the REX):
The older 0.4 version looked like like below.
The game features the following:
The game can also be built with libSDL (see www.libsdl.org) on UNIX (and probably on other systems). This makes development a lot easier.
Thanks to Otavio Guzzi for the icon used for Arkanoid!
The changes from 0.9 to 0.9.1 are:
0.9.1 apparently works on the real hardware, as reported on the REX rumor central.
If anyone want's to help with the Arkanoid game, feel free to do so. For instance, better looking graphics would be nice (look in the data/-subdirectory for the source pictures). More and nicer levels would also be appreciated!
If you want to help with the coding of Arkanoid, I'd advice you to install libSDL on your computer and compile the game for your host computer (should work on windows as well). This speeds up development a lot since you don't have to download the game to the REX each time. Further, if you want the latest snapshot of the source, just send me an email.

Note that you have to upload both the arkanoid.rex and the arkanoid.txt files in order to get a working game.
