The very unique block breaking shoot 'em up Sky Racket has a release date

By - | Views: 5,977

Releasing on October 22nd, Sky Racket is a shoot 'em up that's also a bit like Arkanoid/Breakout. A strange mix but it works well! A game I actually tested and reported on here at GamingOnLinux back in July, it really did impress me with the genre blending.

It's a side-scroller like classic shoot 'em ups, but you're basically playing Tennis with enemy projectiles. You're not firing off lasers or bombs or anything yourself, instead you're sending their own armaments right back at them to destroy them and any blocks in your way. They're called it a "Shmup Breaker"—works for me!

The release date was announced on Steam, along with a new and rather slick opening animation you can see below:
