Breakout: Recharged Fast Facts
I started working on enhancing the Apple-1 – I designed it from day one. When I had been in Atari’s labs doing the Breakout game, I had tried a simple trick to generate color, because Atari was doing their first color games at around that time… A lot of the features of the Apple II went in because I had designed Breakout for Atari. I had designed it in hardware. I wanted to write it in software now. So that was the reason that color was added in first – so that games could be programmed.
