In our version of Pong/Breakout, there are 3 types of bricks for you to break: green bricks are worth 2 points; yellow bricks are worth 50 points; white bricks which are worth 10 points and result in a German language question for the topic you have chosen.
You start with 5 lives. If the ball goes below the paddle, a life is lost and you lose 200 points.
The game ends if you you answer all 10 questions or lose all your lives.
