PopCorn is a breakout clone by French developers Christophe Lacaze and Frédérick Raynal, released in 1988.

Overview

The game was released as freeware for DOS PCs with a CGA graphics adapter, and received a reputation for being an improvement over the PC version of Arkanoid, which it plays similarly to. The game was also released with the European version of Little Big Adventure 2.

The game is in French and was programmed in assembly language for the intel 8086 CPU clocked at 8Mhz. It can nevertheless run on any modern machines using DOS emulators such as DosBox.

In 2013, Popcorn was remade by Frédérick Raynal for both Windows and mobile devices under the name Popcorn 1988. It contains a full remake of all 50 levels using the original game's visuals. However, it lacks the level editor featured in the original, which allowed for custom level sets.
