Atari Breakout

Atari Breakout - The legendary arcade game. Bring back nostalgic memories with Atari Breakout! It still has the same gameplay and challenges as always. Your mission is to destroy all the blocks using the red ball. The red ball will bounce back to you.

What can you expect from this epic Atari game?

In 2019, Atari Breakout will have it’s 37th Birthday - 37 years since this classic video game was released! Today, anyone can relive the simple but addictive fun on our web browser version. When playing this title, expect the following features:
  • Simple game controls
  • Fast-paced reflex game action
  • Different power-ups to boost your paddle
  • A range of block configurations and levels
  • Three difficulty levels
The power-ups have been boosted and improved from the original version. Players can obtain a multi-ball power-up - this fires off several new balls and gives you extra chances to smash the blocks. There is also a cool gun platform power-up - this gives your paddle twin cannons that automatically fire.

Try to get the power-ups as they will improve your chances of completing the level. Don’t sacrifice the original ball to get power-ups however as you could end up missing it and failing!
