A downloadable playdate game

Buy Now$3.00 USD or more

Everyone has a reason to come home early.

Help this poor fool get out of prison!

In this long-cherished interpretation of the classic, I let the ball wander through 60 hand-picked rooms.

There are 2 ways out. 

Break through walls, free fellow prisoners on your way, open secret doors and trick the prison guards!

In 3 areas, the basement, the underground and the main level, the challenges vary a bit beyond breaking rocks.

This little escape can be mastered in 30 to 60 minutes depending on how good your ball control is.  At least two spectacular prison breaks are waiting for you!

The game saves your progress continuously,  Ausbruch picks up where you left off...


  • 60 hand picked rooms
  • map with optional fog of war
  • 3 areas with different game play elements
  • 2 escape routes (via subway or helicopter)
  • various multi ball opportunities

Have fun!

Love & Greetings from Hamburg !

I love the idea, but disappointed with the crank controls… please could you add a 1:1 movement option with the crank so it is like using a paddle controller?

Thank you for playing Ausbruch! I really appreciate it. And unfortunately you are right about the crank control. Unfortunately, it cannot fully develop its potential here 1 to 1, otherwise it would control too precisely. So the paddle could be anywhere instantly. Of course I tried it and it also leads to other problems with the hit tests...

I have your concern in mind, but maybe I can tune the gear ratio of the crank a little... but I have to make sure that all control options offer the same opportunities...

Happy New Year!

Thank you for taking the time to reply and consider my request. I understand your concerns of making it easier, but personally I would not have a problem with it being easier as a by-product of it being satisfying to play with the crank. But I would be interested to see what you come up with either way.  Wishing you a prosperous 2024!

Great twist on classic game! Looks intriguing. Will buy it soon thanks! 

Wonderful! I'm really happy about every player who is interested in my games!

Feel free to send me an email (play@klickaffen.tv) - of course I have promo codes here. 

I would be happy to provide you with one :-)
