also known as: Ball-and-paddle, bat-and-ball, ブロック崩し (block destuction),
In a Breakanoid the player controls a paddle, which is used to juggle a ball. If the ball falls below the paddle (to the bottom of the screen) then a life is lost. If the ball hits the screen's top, its sides, or obstacles (bricks), it will bounce. The goal is to clear the screen of bricks. Variations include a paddle that is tiltable, balls which break through1) bricks, rather than bouncing off them, the ability to shoot, and so on.
Breakanoids with a player-controlled character filling the role of the paddle, its wielder, or even the ball itself.
Multiplayer competitive breakanoids, though the line gets fuzzy between Breakout or Pong influences
In place of walls of bricks/blocks, large bosses are found.
Games where the paddle can move freely.
