Krakout-like PD game

Hey guys,

I been looking for the name of this one for a while.\
I used to have in this german PD disk a game that was similar to Krakout on the C64...
The name was "ball" something if I remember correctly but don't take my word for it...

You would have your paddle on the right, bricks on the left, and you had to destroy the bricks to open the wall on the left and pass to the next level. If on the next level you happened to miss the ball you would go back one level. It was pretty fun!

Launched from WB, mouse operated of course.

Anybody remembers this? I couldn't find it on HOL.

Rebound, although you've already said it's not in HOL, it's one I checked out earlier when looking for something similar for gordenbennett and it looks similar to what you are looking for.

Poing was... is a really good Breakout clone, most of them were done by Paul van der Valk, the musician of the famous Hybris and also of the Imploder series.
