From GameBrew - a wiki dedicated to Video Game Homebrew.
Breakout! is a clone of Arkanoid. It is a multi-language (English and German, depending on user's preferences) 3D-Breakout clone with little in-game manual. In this game you must remove all the blocks to get the highest score, you can move the camera as well for easier gameplay.
This homebrew was participated in NEO Compo 2010.
