About The Game

The mysterious enemy known as 'DOH' has returned to seek vengeance on the 'Vaus' space vessel. The player must once again take control of the Vaus and overcome many challenges in order to destroy DOH once and for all.

An update of the popular 1986 original, Revenge of Doh sees the player battle through 30 rounds, taken from a total of 34. Revenge of Doh differs from its predecessor with the introduction of 'Warp Gates'. Upon completion of a level, 2 gates appear at the bottom left and bottom right of the play area respectively, the player is then taken through one of the gates - the choice dependent upon which side of the screen the player is on when the last brick is destroyed - and is taken to the next level. The fire-button is only used when the Laser (L) pod is caught.
