In the new game, Google likes to hide some features behind the walls, where only some experts can get to them. Although they are also visible to all internet users, no one will have the power to get through them. 

Google added the 37 year old Mini atari game to commemorate the 37th anniversary of the arcade video game. As we stated before, Atari Breakout is a remake of the original Atari game, Pong. It lets users move the paddle to keep the ball from going down the “bottom” and to hit the ball to break the blocks.

In this game, a user destroys multiple rows of blocks/bricks to get the highest score. However, you can hack the game with this cheat and conquer your dream of ranking at the top in this online game!

In the Atari Breakout classic gameplay you are supposed to hit the blocks with your paddle below simply by bouncing the ball.  If you miss a block, you miss an opportunity. Although the game seems pretty simple and straightforward, anything is possible in the world of imagination and computer generation. 

While playing, you don’t want to waste your time on these normal blocks. Instead you will want to use the Atari Breakout hack, to increase your score! You can hack the Atari Breakout game relatively easily if you follow the steps below.
