The player controls the "Vaus", a space vessel that acts as the game's "paddle" which prevents
a ball from falling from the playing field, attempting to bounce it against a number of bricks.
The ball striking a brick causes the brick to disappear. When all the bricks are gone, the player
goes to the next level, where another pattern of bricks appear. There are a number of variations
(bricks that have to be hit multiple times, flying enemy ships, etc.) and power-up capsules to
enhance the Vaus (expand the Vaus, multiply the number of balls, equip a laser cannon, break directly
to the next level, etc), but the gameplay remains the same.
