An extension of the Pong theme, Breakout was created by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, who would go on to start Apple Computer.
The object of the game is to destroy the bricks at the top of the screen by hitting the ball into them. The ball is kept in motion by moving the paddle at the bottom of the screen. When a row of bricks was completed another, would replace it.
The game was black and white, but the bricks were colored with an overlay on the monitor. Enormously popular, the game spawned many variations.
