I think it will be hard to create a better version (whatever that means, faster? nicer? more options?). You have to understand the logic of the game, then you will be able to create your own 'improved' version. Searching in the ineternet I found several links like the above mentioned for sources in Java, Basic and Pascal. If you really don't know how the game has to work, take a look at these places. But please don't expect to create a 'better' game by fiddling with somebody elses code. Improving code ALWAYS means to understand a problem and to find a better IMPLEMENTATION of the logic. The joy and fun and the satisfaction of programming is to be able to say: "I understand the problem, I found the logic behind it and I was able to put it in code!" And if that code is 'better' than somebody elses, that's even more satisfying!

Good luck

Asker has requested a deletion/refund for this, but did not post a reason here as to why (CS question handled by ComTech, Administrator).

Question asked long ago, Proposed Answer pending since July 2001; please tell us your thinking here and why you'd choose after all this time to delete it versus to award these points,

Thanks,

I did not look at the program itself, but I checked the link Alex posted. From the site:
"A version of the classic 'Breakout' game. ZIP file contains .c source code and .rtf documentation. Fun, and educational :-) You must run it in Borland C++ 4.52, and you also need to know how to create a DOS project to include it in, with BGI checked."

I think you can't get much better tha that! I wouldn't see any reason to delete this question.
