* FollowTheLeader: There were many, many clones produced in TheEighties.
** Still to this day, in fact. Many users of mobile phones will find some form of Breakout as one of their default games.
** Young programmers from the late 80's on were able to create their ''own'' ''Breakout'' clone in BASIC.

* BigDamnMovie: The PS1/PC version might as well be a videogame movie about a paddle going through intense wall related obstacles to save his friends from the forces of evil.

''Breakout'' is a 1976 PuzzleGame by {{Atari}}. Originally designed as a single-player version of ''VideoGame/{{Pong}}'', it involves moving a paddle back and forth to break bricks with a ball. When all the bricks are destroyed, a second wall will appear. Destroy that and you win the game.
