The original Breakout may actually rank as one of the most cloned games ever made. Super Breakout is not a clone, it’s a proper sequel, and it’s so good that you’ll find brand new games created today that follow its timeless template. Now you can play it at the new Atari Arcade from within your browser — complete with HTML5 and multi-touch support in Internet Explorer 10. It also works great in Internet Explorer 9 on a Windows 7 PC, or any other modern browser.
