Breakout Returns
Developer   ildave1

About: Originally released in 1976, Breakout quickly became a great Arcade game of its time. Here, I wanted to bring back that same flavor, with a twist. Breakout Returns offers a unique Breakout experience, while staying true to the concept originally designed so long ago.

Game Info How To Play Downloads Comments


Breakout Returns is centered around a single Challenge. The challenge to strive for the top while having an exciting ride up there. There are two modes , Practice and Challenge and they both share the same rules.

Game Rules:
The player has 7 Levels.
The player has 2 Lives.
The player has 7 Minutes…

Here, you will be challenged to destroy as many blocks as you possibly can, within time constraints – 1 minute for each level. You start with 2 lives, how you manage and how you attain power ups will be detrimental to your progression through the high score ranks. The time does not start until you release the ball from the paddle, once released, game on.

Practice Mode:

Feel free to choose any level that you wish. Practice, become familiar with the level and then progress to the challenge. Not much to it. Same rules apply.

Game On:
Break out to destroy as many blocks as you can. If you like a challenge, dive right in – It's waiting for you…

Good luck.
