BREAKOUT GAMES

GAME 1
Using a controller, players attempt to smash their way through the wall and score points.

GAME 2
This game features Steerable Balls so you can make every hit count.

GAME 3
Take a breather. This game features Catch, which gives you time to play your strategy and aim.

GAME 4
Don't blink. The only time you'll see your Breakout wall is when the ball hits a brick. The rest of the time you're playing Breakout in the dark.

GAME 5
The pressure's on. The Time at the top of the playfield will record the time it takes you to complete a Breakout.

GAME 6
The Timer provides the suspense. The Steerable Balls provide some of the strategy moves you'll make during this game.

GAME 7
How long does it take? The Time in this game will tick away the seconds as you aim your balls with Catch.

GAME 8
The wall lights up only when you hit a brick. Then you're playing in the dark again as the Timer records your game time.


BREAKTHRU GAMES

Breakthru is played the same way as Breakout games. The only difference is the ball action. Once the ball hits a brick, the ball continues to penetrate the wall, hitting more bricks and scoring more points. Breakthru is plenty of fast ball and paddle action.

GAME 9
POW! POW! POW! Make a direct hit on a brick and the ball continues traveling through the wall in this basic Breakthru.

GAME 10
Steerable missiles increase your control over the ball during this fast game of Breakthru.

GAME 11 Slow the action down with Catch in this Breakthru game.

GAME 12
The Breakthru wall only appears when you hit a brick. During any other game play it's invisible.
