Block breakers: games like Breakout and Arkanoid

Block breaker is a term often used to describe a type of video game that involves breaking or destroying blocks or bricks within the game environment. These games are typically characterized by a paddle or platform at the bottom of the screen that the player controls, and a wall of blocks at the top of the screen that the player must eliminate. The player uses the paddle to bounce a ball or projectile into the blocks, and when the ball hits a block, it destroys or "breaks" the block.
One of the most iconic block breaker games is Breakout which was created by Atari and released in 1976. Arkanoid is another well-known block breaker game that was released in the 1980s.
