Games galore for Breakout fans
Breakout is an arcade classic which was invented by Atari an amazing 31 years ago. A symbol of its enduring appeal is the amount of games that have been made – and indeed are still being made – based on the original format. There are many Breakout clones and variations on Softonic although there’s quite a variation in quality. The original concept was simple – a bouncing ball, a screen of bricks and a small paddle that you can move along the bottom of the screen. The aim is to bounce the ball off the paddle and destroy all the bricks by hitting them. The trick was to not let the ball hit the ground otherwise you lose a life.
