    Overall, Siesta Fiesta is a breath of fresh air as a unique Breakout-styled game that fans of the genre will not want to miss.

    The title will appeal to gamers of all experience and ability, and has a "just one more go" feel to it that makes it hard to put down.
  3. A new spin on an old idea, with enough creativity and charm to keep Breakout fans amused. Peddlers of cynical arcade clones: hang your heads in shame.

    It innovates without compromising on quality or complicating matters beyond the reach of inexperienced players, and is perfect either for extended play sessions of a quick level on the bus; with a lot of top-notch content and an affordable price, it shows that with skill and care developers can still deliver real quality to the portable

    I'll stop just short of saying "Siesta Fiesta" is a must-own for any Nintendo 3DS user, if only because there are "gamers" for whom this type of game (best suited to be picked up and played in short bursts rather than extensive sit-downs) will probably never deliver a satisfactory time.

    Hopefully you are a tough one, because Siesta Fiesta is not an easy game. This Breakout-look-a-like has original challenges and looks great. It sounds like LocoRoco when you listen to the soundtrack, but as that franchise stopped long ago, we are excited for those funny voices to be (sort of) back.

    It's a fun and addictive take on the classic "Breakout" recipe that will offer you some hours of enjoyable summer gaming.

    When everyone thought the formulas behind Breakout and Arkanoid were exhausted, along comes Siesta Fiesta to show that it’s still possible to depart from a very simple and known basis and produce a fresh, lasting and competent experience.

    A challenging and beautifully designed mix between a Break Out/Arkanoid clone and a flipper game.

    While Breakout clones often get boring, it's impossible to fall asleep with this festive and bouncy take on the genre.

    Siesta Fiesta does not offer an online game mode or two-player option. It is a purely aligned experience in individual challenge that makes us smile in no time.

    Siesta Fiesta is a surprisingly neat game for the Nintendo 3DS eShop. The levels can be played in chunks and can be easily selected thanks to a world map.

    While the omission of leaderboards and StreetPass functionality does make Siesta Fiesta a lonely experience, it’s still a fun, challenging game that deftly blends a variety of retro genres.

    A fizzy Breakout-style game with some puzzle mechanics and a fresh and colorful level design. It’s fun, even if it is wanting few extra contents and lack of longevity.

    A nice and funny take on the breakout formula that is best suited for short game sessions.

    The game's insistence on mixing things up makes it joyful throughout. Siesta Fiesta may not keep you coming back when it's over, but it's a lot of fun while it lasts.
