The ZX Spectrum is an 8-bit personal home computer released in the UK in 1982 by Sinclair Research Ltd, which sold in excess of 5 million units worldwide. More than 10,000 games were released for the ZX Spectrum.

Breakthru for the ZX Spectrum (one of fewer than 200 ZX Spectrum games being re-released as a Windows 8 app) is one of THE defining games of the 1980s.

The Breakthru: ZX Spectrum app is the near-100% original ZX Spectrum game, as developed by Paul Houbart, Simon Butler, Dawn Drake, Noel Hines and published by US Gold in 1986 and is brought to you - as an officially licenced product - utilizing our ZX Spectrum: Elite Collection HD technology.

About Breakthru: BreakThru is a Data East vehicular combat arcade game that was later made available for the Nintendo Entertainment System.

Game-play Breakthru: The goal is to drive a dune buggy to "breakthru" the enemy lines of five different areas. The five areas are "Mountain", "Bridge", "Prairie" (Although early advertising labeled it "Jungle"), "City", and "Recover the Aircraft". Secret fighter plane PK430 has been stolen from your country, and it is up to you to get it back. You will drive a buggy equipped with a gun and "BreakThru" five different enemy strongholds. On your way you will encounter obstacles such as land mines, rocks, soldiers, jeeps, flamethrowers, tanks, trucks, armored vehicles, and helicopters. Extra lives can be found, as well as a powerup that gives the player a temporary three-way cannon. Upon completing the final level, after the ending sequence is shown, the player continues the game, but is prompted to select one of the levels to start at. The final win condition of this game is completing the final level a second time (no matter where he or she starts from). When this is accomplished, the game ends.
