    Sky Skipper isn't worth buying to enjoy as a game, but it is worth buying as a historical curiosity – and to show support to those who brought it back to life! [Issue #37 – January/February 2019, p. 26]

    While Arcade Archives Sky Skipper may have some flaws, going for a high score can still be fun as long as you know what you're getting into. It's a game that likely wasn't fully completed, but I'm still really excited that this historical curiosity has an official release. I would still recommend it to classic arcade lovers, Nintendo fans, and anyone interested in gaming history.

    Gameplay is simple but not massively varied. It doesn't get dull, however, and there's certainly fun to be found in striking a balance between completing the levels quickly and plotting a route to maximise your point-scoring; online leaderboards add to the replayability. It's not quite the lost classic some would have you believe, but Arcade Archives Sky Skipper can still entertain with its animal-rescuing, gorilla-bombing shenanigans.
