Nice job! I'm learning pygame and this game is a very good example.
I'd got an error when i run Pykanoid-0.8.6 (The game crashed)
$ python Pykanoid.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "Pykanoid.py", line 1592, in <module>
main=MainScreen(screen)
File "Pykanoid.py", line 910, in __init__
self.start=util.loadText('New Game', 16, (255,255,255), 'engex')
File "/home/tata/Pykanoid/util.py", line 118, in loadText
return ffont.render(text, 0, color)
pygame.error: SDL_ttf render failed

This is fixed with:
Edit the file util.py.
In line 118, change, this:
return ffont.render(text, 0, color)
to that:
return ffont.render(text, 1, color)

I ignore what is the problem, i only apply a similar solution of this bug:

Anyway - thanks for a cool game.

Cheers!!

Great job. Graphics and sound are great. A very professional looking game. I like the simple way I can return to my last level.

The game play is great and compares well to the original :-)

I think you need slightly more randomization/drift in your bouncing. I keep getting stuck on level 12 going around and around in the same bounce pattern. Or am I missing something?

Anyway - thanks for a cool game. It's a lot of fun!

Awesome!!!! This is the best Arkanoid game on the site! I found a few glitches but nothing serious. Graphics are very cool B-) Sound is too! Nice job!

COMMENTS:
Sound effects are really cool!
Nice intro too.
SUGGESTIONS:
Maybe you could have a bar on the bottom that describes powerups as you get them.
BUGS:
1)When the ball's coming right and I'm moving right, the ball is reflected left. Is this supposed to happen?
2)When I lose a life via powerup, the new life amount is written on top of the old one, having both on the screen. Kinda hard to explain... if - is written on top of |, I see a +. Maybe you're not clearing a rectangle around the old lives first?
3) Not really a bug... but you spelled "lives" wrong. :P

Overall, a pretty fun game.
