Breakout © 2000 Hasbro Interactive
A modernized 3-D remake of the 1970s Atari classic that features multiple missions and follows this storyline:
"A world not so dissimilar to ours has some very strange inhabitants--tall, fun, flexible, strong-willed and quite unlike anything we know.
Bouncer [the hero] lives happily with his girlfriend Daisy on a beautiful desert island. He has many friends--some are other paddles like him, and others are balls, a paddle's natural companion. All was comfortable and quiet until Batnix [the villain] entered the scene. On seeing Daisy he vowed to have her at all costs.
One day, while Bouncer was swimming far out to sea to rescue a ball, Batnix and his evil henchmen kidnapped the beautiful Daisy. On Bouncer's return to the island they zapped him from behind and imprisoned him in a dark and dank prison. Knowing of Bouncer's strong and loyal friends, Batnix ensured that they couldn't mount a rescue by scattering them in prisons across the world.
In his smelly and wet cell, Bouncer is chained to a ball, his punishment since his latest failed escape attempt. His only consolation is a picture of Daisy pinned to the wall.
But then, as the noise of the guards grows distant, things start to happen. The steel ball gives a quick sideways glance, leaps into the air and smashes the chains. Freed from his chains, Bouncer gives his friend the ball a mighty whack, demolishing the cell walls and launching the latest dash for freedom.
Will Bouncer succeed? Can he rescue all of his friends? Ultimately, can he save Daisy and defeat Batnix once and for all? It's up to you!"
