This game is fun enough that it would be worth playing more just to see how far you could get into clearing the blocks. Indeed, I would wholeheartedly recommend this game to all Atari 2600 gamers, were it not for the existence of Super Breakout. Still, if you for some reason can't find Super Breakout, this game is certainly good in its own right.

The Video Game Critic
Even with its archaic gameplay, this oldie offers enough challenge and variety to keep you occupied for a while.
