The Final Word

Brick breaker games have been around for a long time but you've never seen them like this before, welcome to Strikey Sisters.

From the get-go your strong attack will be your best friend. It will break bricks faster and reflect projectiles. Enemies will drop power ups and respawn until every brick has been destroyed. Power ups will come pouring down the screen, ranging from freezing enemies, lighting attacks, fire balls, bombs, and more. Not only will you need to collect power ups, but bricks will also drop coins which are needed to unlock treasure chests containing keys for secret levels and a monster catching ability. There is a cutscene and boss battle every 4 stages which are even more frantic and fun. Don't worry, missing your ball or getting hit 3 times only makes you restart the stage. The retro synth soundtrack fits perfectly with the charming pixel-art style.

DYA Games has done a fantastic job revamping an old time classic into a modern day action arcade brick-break breakout!

Worth it?

Yes
