Game Details

In this newer version of Breakout, the goal is still to destroy rows of bricks by ricocheting a ball off a paddle at the bottom of the screen. Now there are two other variations of the game available.

In the "cavity" version, two balls are trapped at the top of the screen, blocked in by the wall. Once the wall is chipped away, and the balls were free, you can use them to destroy the wall along with the original ball.  You can continue to play with the three balls, until you lose them.

In the "progressive" version, new rows of blocks are always being added as you chip away the wall, bringing it closer and closer to the paddle.

Early Atari documentation list
Submitted by Gregg Woodcock ( Here is a pretty complete list of documentation for Atari's early arcade video games. Note that "TM" stands for "Technical Manual" and "DP" stands for "Drawing Package [supplement]" which was later renamed to "SP" which stands for "Supplement Package". I am not sure what "CO" stands for but the "C" could be for "Correction" because most of the CO documents were errata or addendums to the manuals. In addition, most Atari games had "ST" documents which w
