This re-imagining introduces 3D graphics, new interactive elements, powerups, and multiplayer modes.

Breakout features a basic story in which Bouncer the paddle must defeat the evil Batnix in order to rescue his girlfriend Daisy. Numerous enemies such as chickens, knights, and aliens stand in his way.
