Breakout is a clone of the arcade game and has you controlling a bat at the bottom of the screen, moving it left or right. You must deflect a ball upwards to hit a wall above and remove the bricks to make the wall disappear. If you let the ball go past the bat then you lose one of nine lives. There are nine skill levels (1-9) which dictates the speed of the ball.
