Spinout for the IBM PC

Spinout is a clone of the game Breakout written in BASIC for IBM PC computers. Gameplay remains the same as in Breakout; the game screen features four rows of bricks near the top of the screen and players control a paddle which can move horizontally along the bottom. The goal is to destroy all of the bricks by deflecting a bouncing ball into them. If the ball falls off of the bottom of the screen, it is lost; players begin the game with 5 balls and the game ends either when all 5 balls are lost or all of the bricks have been succesfully destroyed.
