Arcade USA Breakout!



Let’s take a look at one of my favorite arcade games from the late 70’s. Breakout! by Atari.  Released in 1976, this was a discrete logic game (no CPU).  The game control was very simple, a paddle and a serve button.  I was a very young when this game came out (had to stand on a milk crate to play). Overall this type of game I still enjoy today, for some extra fun go to Google and type in atari breakout and watch what happens!

Here is how I would rate the ports, with my most favorite at the top of the list.

  • Atari 2600
  • Atari C380 dedicated console
  • Bally Astrocade
  • Fairchild Channel F
  • Microvision
  • Bandai Block Out VFD game
