It's time to break out our IntCode interpreter and do something useful for once: play breakout.
Man, flying through the void is really boring. Good thing those elves are looking out for us and sent us some in-flight entertainment. It seems to be a rudimentary breakout clone. Bounce the ball off your paddle to break all the bricks.
In order to check the status of the code, Part 1 asks us to verify that we see the proper number of blocks on the screen when the game starts.
Part 2 is to actually play the game and report our high score!

If you were part of Ryan Palo's leaderboard last year, you're still a member of that!
If you want me to add your leaderboard code to this page, reply to one of these posts and/or send me a DM containing your code and any theming or notes you’d like me to add. (You can find your private leaderboard code on your "Private Leaderboard" page.)
I'll edit in any leaderboards that people want to post, along with any description for the kinds of people you want to have on it. (My leaderboard is being used as my office's leaderboard.) And if I get something wrong, please call me out or message me and I’ll fix it ASAP.
There's no limit to the number of leaderboards you can join, so there's no problem belonging to a "Beginner" and a language specific one if you want.
I'm planning on adding some statistics, but other than "what languages did we see yesterday" does anyone have any ideas?
