Bolo is a computer game originally for the Atari ST using the high resolution monochrome monitor. The game is considered a Breakout clone.

Bolo builds on the concept of Breakout, introducing numerous additions such as gravity, exploding bricks, and tunneling to make the game more interesting and challenging. Written in the late 1980s by Meinolf Schneider, better remembered for his Oxyd games, Bolo was quite popular with Atari ST users in Germany at the time. It was later remade for Macintosh and MS-DOS.
