Most people may know this sort of game as Arkanoid, even though Breakout came out first in the 70s for Atari. LBreakout is an alternative to the game, with its own set of bonuses and levels.

A perfect time waster, the game is about destroying the bricks at the top of the screen by hitting a ball with your paddle. LBreakout features 30 different levels, with all sorts of brick shapes, which get more complex as you move up the game.

Arkanoid and Breakout fans know that bonuses are a huge part of the game, in fact they're usually one of the main attractions of arcade games.

LBreakout features its own set, which includes extra balls, plasma weapons, speed-downs, longer paddles, metal balls and extra lifes. These ensure that the game stays exciting throughout.

On the downside the game is no longer maintained by the developer, so don't expect any new feature or for any bug to be fixed. While LBreakout features a level editor, it's not that straightforward creating your own.

We recommend sticking to the 30 levels provided in the game.

A fun time waster to have on your Mac if you're a fan of classic arcade games like Arkanoid.

In this game, a layer of bricks lines the top third of the screen. A ball travels across the screen, bouncing off the top and side walls of the screen.

When a brick is hit, the ball bounces away and the brick is destroyed. The player loses a turn when the ball touches the bottom of the screen.
