BreakThru! is a puzzle game created by Alexey Pajitnov, the same guy who created Tetris. In this game, you play in several various locations around the world. There are a bunch of blocks and your goal is to clear them all off the screen. You do this by matching two or more of the same color together. BreakThru! was also available for PC, GameBoy, and Sega Saturn.

Music

The game's music does not disappoint in the audio department. All the songs are ported from the DOS version, using the lower fidelity instruments that the Super Nintendo could provide. Paul Mogg and Joseph White came together to provide and amazing soundtrack while Andrew Edlen's New York song is really catchy.

Andy had this to say about the New York music:

The NY track was intended to invoke midtown taxicabs with a ton of attitude:-} Using a General Midi bank of sounds (waaay before the arrival of the great samples that became possible with faster processors), the horns in particular had a nice, nasal NY feel to them.

David Warhol programmed and provided to Artech the game's music driver, though he is only credited in the manual for music orchestration and goes by the alias of his company Realtime Associates.
