The player starts with the ball on their paddle and they can move the paddle left and right. Once the player hits the spacebar, the ball is released in a random direction, all of the bricks are regenerated, and the player's score goes back to zero. The ball bounces off of the walls, bricks, and the paddle. When the ball bounces off of the paddle, it bounces more to the left if it hits the paddle on the left side and more to the right if it hits the paddle on the right side, which allows a skilled player to aim. If the ball gets past the paddle the game is over. Green bricks are worth 25 points, orange bricks are worth 50 points, and blue bricks are worth 100 points. The ball speeds up once you hit the first orange brick and then again once you hit the first blue brick. If you manage to get all of the bricks, none more will be generated but you will have achieved the maximum score of 2800 points.
