The Wall is a 1993 Same Game clone for home computers by Japanese developer Zoo Corporation, late published by Spectrum HoloByte as BreakThru! (ブレイクスルー). It was brought to the Sega Saturn in 1995 and released exclusively in Japan.

Sega Mega Drive and Sega Game Gear versions were advertised in 1994 for the North American market, but did not materialise, likely for the same reasons WildSnake was cancelled. Nintendo versions advertised at the same time were released, however.

Advertising saw Tetris creator Alexey Pajitnov lend his name to the game, however Pajitnov was not involved in its development.
