PopCorn is a 1989 breakout clone by French developers Christophe Lacaze and Frédérick Raynal.


The game was released as freeware for MS-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.[citation needed] The game was also released with the European version of Little Big Adventure 2.[citation needed]

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 MS-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.
