Breakout Review

Here's a look at two classic games from Atari, Breakout and the sequel Super Breakout. Breakout made a huge splash a few months ago on the interwebs. For the anniversary of the game Google put a little Easter Egg in the image search function where if you put in, "Breakout" you got to play a mini game of Breakout where pictures from the image search were used as the blocks.

This game has a history behind it, of course the original game was designed by none other then Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs when they both worked at Atari. Even though the paddle controller is still flaky, it's still fun to play with the amazing cellophane overlays they have to try to make the rows of colored bricks.
