VeggieTales is a 3D-animated Christian children's series created by Big Idea Productions in 1993. Because of the series' popularity, many online games were created for Big Idea's website.[1]

Despite most of these games still being accessible, one game that has not resurfaced is Lyle's Break-Out, which was created to promote the episode "Lyle the Kindly Viking".

A twist on the classic Atari game Breakout, the player controls Lyle (played by Junior Asparagus), who must destroy a wall of bricks using bouncing life rings.[2]


Unlike most of Big Idea's other games, which were made in either Shockwave or Adobe Flash, Lyle's Break-Out was developed using Java.[3]

Although many of the game's assets have been archived, the actual levels and sounds remain lost, rendering the game unplayable. As of March 2024, none of the files for the 2011 reskin of the game have been archived either.
