Brick Buster

There are a wealth of Atari ST games that support high resolution and here is one of the best, Bolo! No, not Mr Bolo Yeung but in fact a Breakout clone, one that takes the classic concept and improves upon it. Think of your typical Breakout game but with a few more bells and whistles, like the ability to move your pad almost anywhere on-screen. I love having the freedom of the entire screen available, however, this blessing can sometimes become a curse as I often accidently knock the ball out of play... Oops!!

Thankfully Bolo has more positives than negatives, such as gravitational effects which are cunningly effective. There are also dozens of different brick types and you're able to control the basic physics of the ball's speed and direction on a scale far beyond that of other Breakout's. Bolo is awesome brick-blasting fun. Simple as that!
