DescriptionBreakout ! is an early version of the classic brick breaking game.
Basically this game is like all the others, the player has five balls and must keep them in play by moving a paddle along the bottom of the screen. The ball(s) bounce around the screen destroying bricks that they hit and thus the player scores points.
This game was designed to be used with a mouse, though a keyboard can be used if necessary, and it does have some unusual features. The game area is split into two sections and the game starts with the mouse positioned over the right hand window where the menu options are. As soon as the player clicks on START control switches to the left hand area where the game is played and moving the mouse left & right now moves the panel. Any further click of the mouse switches control back to the menu.
There are no in-game configuration options but, as was common at the time, the developer did provide some command line options that affect the gameplay.
- The machine was written on a ZENITH Z200 system which the developer says "is approximately equal to a 8MHz PC/AT" so a command line switch that will cater for both faster and slower machines.
- There is another command line option to disable the sound made when a ball hits a brick
