Breakout is a rarity in gaming. It's a title that, despite being over three decades old, requires no improvements. The concept is easy to grasp: you bounce a ball off of a controllable paddle and use it to break as many onscreen blocks as possible. Oh sure, you can make the game run faster, include different kinds of blocks, or add all kinds of special effects. It doesn't matter how you dress it up, though. Regardless of any tweaks and alterations, the fundamental gameplay remains completely unaltered; it is still the paddle, the ball, and blocks. That's all you really need. It's simple, fun, and addictive.
