Breakout for the Atari 2600 is a near-perfect port of the 1976 arcade classic. With its rotary analog control and simple, but crisp color graphics, the game is a perfect fit for the 2600's paddle controllers and limited, though serviceable memory. In addition, the home version sports a number of game variations, including timed matches, steerable and catchable balls, team play, invisible walls and Breakthru games. In Breakthru, the ball penetrates through the wall after hitting a brick, destroying many more bricks. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
