Using a dial, you control a paddle at the bottom of the screen. Hit a ball to the "bricks" at the top, and they will break (and disappear). Your goal: get rid of all the bricks.
about this version
Breakout was a huge success in the late 70s as many people were ready for a change from all of the Pong-like games. Breakout is also famous for the fact that Jobs and Wozniak worked on this game prior to building their first Apple computer.

*NOTE: Dimensional Weight (also know as "Dim Weight") is an industry
standard formula used by shipping companies. The calculation is used
to determine how much space a package will take up. Most shipping rates
are calculated based on Dim Weight or actual weight, whichever is greater.
The formula for Dim Weight is (L" x W" x D")/194. The examples shown here
show the actual dimensional weight for the game, and then given an
estimated shipping dimensional weight assuming that 5" of packing
material is needed in each dimension. Your actual results may vary.
