Bolo


There are a wealth of Atari ST games that support high resolution and here is one of the best, Bolo! No, not Bolo Yeung but in fact a Breakout clone! This takes the classic concept and improves upon it tremendously with extra features and the ability to move the bat almost anywhere you like. I love having the freedom of the entire screen, however, this blessing can sometimes be a curse as I often accidentally 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!
