This is a very basic version of Atari's Breakout. The player controls a paddle at the bottom of the screen and has to direct a ball towards a set of bricks above him. These will then break when hit by the ball and the goal of the game is simply to clear all the bricks. The player has ten balls and a number on the ball shows how many are left. When the player misses, the ball will still bounce back and the game will continue as before. The only difference is that the number on the ball will have decreased. The game keeps running after all bricks have been cleared until all balls are lost or the computer is restarted. When the player is out of balls the game is restarted instantly. There is no score count.
