The main character of Breakout is Bouncer. When his friends and beloved Daisy are captured and imprisoned by the evil Batnix, the red reflector sets off on a mission to free them without a moment's thought. Coach Steel ball helps him in this brave undertaking. The game is a development of the mechanisms known from the original. The game consists in bouncing the ball with a moving stick and removing subsequent elements from the boards. The creators took care of a large variety of levels, which were located, among others, in Egypt, on the farm, in the medieval castle and in space. As in the classic Breakout, during the game there is a possibility to unlock various power-ups, which facilitate the game.
The visualisation of Breakout was made with the use of 3D graphics, which is a clear departure from the two-dimensional original from the 70s. The fun is pleasing due to the non-imposing background music.
