Sky Racket is an excitingly fun love letter to retro gaming.

The most difficult part of reviewing Sky Racket is knowing which audience is going to be the most interested in the game. As mentioned before, while the boss fights are fun and full of stuff to dodge, the block sections of the game may be too slow-paced for the more dedicated shmup fans. With that being said, it is also possible that the people looking for a relaxing experience of Tennis and Break-Out might be taken off guard by the more demanding boss fights. Perhaps the safest conclusion, then, is that the game should appeal to an audience that has an overlapping interest in the diverse game-styles that Sky Racket skillfully mixes together.

In trying to combine shoot-em-ups and brick breakers, Sky Racket misses the point of both genres.

The variety present here is great, but I can't help but feel like this main course is leaving me a little hungry. If you don't mind running through stages multiple times to achieve all of the objectives, or you're looking for a fresh and compact co-op game, Sky Racket is certainly worth a look. The amount of content and the controls do leave something to be desired, though.
