Words are unable to describe how AWESOME you guys from myabandonware are for holding this site together, you have taken so many peoples minds to places they hold the dearest memories of, when they couldn't have dreamt of ever revisiting.

God bless you all and the good people of your families forever more.

One of the best brick breaker games I remember playing. Some bricks drop powerups (not all good) that change gameplay slightly. Spent many an hour avoiding doing homework with this one on the C64.

This game is also available on Sinclair ZX Spectrum (=48K) and for the Atari ST... I had the Spectrum and PC versions, but a friend had it on the ST.

It still works as well with a state-of-the-art 2010 PC. Extremely addictive
