Kit Kat accused of copying Atari game Breakout
Kit Kat's maker Nestle has been accused of copying Breakout, the 1970s computer game, in its latest marketing. Atari, the company behind some of the most popular early video games, has filed a suit alleging Nestle knowingly exploited the game's look and feel. The advert shows a game similar to Breakout but where the bricks are replaced with single Kit Kat bars. In the advert, which is titled "Kit Kat: Breakout", a row of people, of varying ages and appearance, share a sofa and play a video game during their work break. The legal complaint against Nestle, filed in a San Francisco court on Thursday, claims that the Swiss chocolate maker had hoped to exploit "The special place [Breakout] holds among nostalgic Baby Boomers, Generation X, and even today's Millennial and post-Millennial 'gamers'".
