I love a good old game of breakout! Though I really hate GUIs and prefer TUIs and the command-line, so I was wondering if there is a command-line version of the game breakout? I searched in the Ubuntu Software Center but all I found was kbreakout which is not a command-line game, but rather a GUI one. I am running Ubuntu GNOME 15.04 with GNOME 3.18. This would be preferebly something from one of the repositories.


The GitHub user TheAlphaNerd has written a simple Curses version of Breakout in Python, which you can download from here https://gist.githubusercontent.com/TheAlphaNerd/b3451c543de1ccb7b85d/raw/de65498536ed9a35cd9346a5bc395fc1d6258798/breakout.py

enter image description here

It only uses the Python standard libraries, and the file can be run from the command line without any installation by typing:

python <PATH TO FILE>/breakout.py

    The link is broken, and breakout cannot be found in TheAlphaNerd's gists anywhere. – user423626 Jun 19 '16 at 15:35
