Description:
     Choose one of many classic modes in 2D or 3D and blast off.  Pounce on an array of fields full of bricks one after another after another.  Use a mouse on your computer or tilt your phone to move the paddle.  Solid walls, movable walls, hidden balls and more.  Collect power-ups for better weapons and unlock more levels.  Not all bricks are solid squares that do not move.  There are a variety of shapes with different tendencies with some that move around.  It's retro.  It's now.  It's BLASTO!

     The title of the game as well as the titles of the sub-games will change.  These are just placeholders.  It can be something like "Brick Zapper", "Brick Master", Brick Blaster", "BLASTO!

BLOG OF UPDATES

- 5/15/2018 - "BLASTO! Brick Zapper" is a project that will be probably released when the new Atari VCSii is released (mid to late 2019).  Hopefully it will be a day 1 event.  The  main gameplay is done.  It needs a lot more levels, a new menu system and a few more things to make it a blast.
