Break on thru to the other side (of the destroyed bridge) in BreakThru, the 1986 driving/shooting/jumping game from Data East. BreakThru challenges you to fight your way through five stages of enemy lines to recover your stolen PK430 aircraft, driving an armed and armored supercar through miles of highly militarized terrain. The game's key attraction is the car's ability to jump over obstacles, including huge avalanches, missing bridge sections, islands and more – just try not to dwell on the weird physics of the car's jump animation. Occasional falling powerups grant you brief weapon upgrades, but the combination of the swerving/dodging/jumping action and the game's rudimentary shooter mechanics make your car feel relatively fragile. You have to admire that slick 80s logo though.
