Brickbreaker game implemented on Altera DE1 board

Breakout is a popular arcade game developed in 1972 by Atari, Inc. The concept behind the game is that the moving ball breaks the bricks, and the score depends on how many bricks are broken. The sides of the screen deflect the ball and the paddle at the bottom of the screen is used to deflect the ball and prevent it from falling.

I, along with a team member designed this game on the Altera DE1 board by defining a digital system in VHDL that drove a VGA display.

You can find more information on how we went about building it in the report below.
