FlipOut is a breakout game with physics. Everything is affected by gravity, and collides with everything else. Unlike most breakout games, the ball does not move at a constant speed. Instead, the paddle can be "flipped" to strike the ball upwards, much like the flippers in a pinball machine. Many of the bonuses affect various aspects of the physics, such as gravity or friction.

FlipOut's levels give breakout a whole new dimension. Bricks can be rotated and laid on top of each other. The game comes with 17 levels, and with the built-in level editor, only your imagination is the limit.
