Graphics: 8/10
The blocks may look funny to you because they aren't different colors, but rather have a pattern or design on them.

Features: 8/10
Some blocks give you power-ups or power-downs for your paddle or for the ball. Has a high score keeper, level select, speed setting, bonus setting, and level mode setting.

Controls: 8/10
It may be a bit harder because you can't move fast enough to get to the ball in time or it could be hard to move the paddle to exactly where you want it. Other than that you, just move left or right and if you get the gun you can shoot the blocks.

Addictiveness: 8/10
If you like “Breakout,” “Pong,” or “Diamonds, then you will probably enjoy playing “Breakout 2.0.”

Overall: 8/10
-Positive-
Good features.
Pretty addictive.
Doesn't really take up much space compared to my other games.

-Negative-
A wheel would be better for controlling the paddle as opposed to the arrow keys.

Recommended? Yes

As you may be able to see by the screenshot, this is a wonderful clone of “Breakout” for the computer (and other platforms). There are many different blocks to be broken, some of which must be hit more than once to break. Overall, the graphics in this game are superb! There is no reason to complain about the speed of this game, other than maybe it is too fast (a rarity amongst most ASM programs I assure you). “Breakout v2.0” is extremely addicting, especially for those of you who are “Pong” or “Breakout” fans. Have Fun and Happy Downloading!
