Summary 00297: sbrkout: The ball flies through the blocks.
Description If you break some stones of the wall, and your ball flies through the break wall and return, the ball flies behind other stones and did not break them.

When the ball is returning back down, it will not erase a brick unless it's the uppermost one in any given column (for each color set of bricks). The inverse is true when the ball is rising - only the lowest brick per column will erase.

This is 100% correct behaviour (I have a REAL Super Breakout arcade game). From the manual... "The player must hit the ball first, otherwise bricks cannot be knocked out, and the ball will pass through all bricks in its path. The ball will also pass through any bricks if it has not gone at least four rows from the last brick hit, and not hit the paddle or the uppermost boundary at the top of the screen".

So, there it is, NO FAULT :-)

Thank you for your input. Based on that information, I'll set this up as a BTANB.
