something about the bat and ball games that drag you in and keep you there for hours.

Yeah I totally agree, I love playing them. I also discovered another really good one yesterday - Fireball II for the Acorn Archimedes:

It's funny cause up until last year I really didn't like this genre of game at all. I found them difficult and I really sucked at them, but then I got Impulse X for the Jaguar and spent so much time playing it that now I absolutely love these games! Impulse X is my favourite but I've also been playing a lot of Arkanoid Doh It Again on the SNES and Breakout 2000 on the Jag.

There's also the awesome game Wizorb. It combines Arkanoid with a RPG and it's incredibly fun!

This is a great game for the ST and Amiga that takes things from a different perspective:

That's an interesting take on the concept.  Pretty cool.

If you are a PlayStation 1 owner then this game is pretty much an essential purchase in my opinion:
