With Breakout in Space, keep a ball in the game until all breakable game blocks are destroyed. With the mouse you can move the board left and right. The ball can be launched from the center of the board to the northeast or northwest direction by pressing the space bar or control key. Some game blocks must be hit several times with the ball. When all blocks are destroyed you pass on to the next level. If the ball gets into an endless loop, the problem can be solved by one or repeated pressing of the key X. In some game blocks, some special objects are hidden. If they hit the board, special actions will be executed. The player who finishes all twenty levels, gets as a reward a password for all levels. With these passwords you can play your favorite levels at any time. There are two parts of this game with different levels. The passwords are the same in both versions. So, you have another chance to finish the game to get all twenty passwords.
