Sinkie Soldiers Logo

Keep control of the castle, and more importantly: your armour.

Sinkie Soldiers is a local co-op versus game in which you battle against your friends for control of the castle! Your goal is to break down the integrity of your enemy’s armour and finish them off to claim the victory.

The game is located on a kids bouncy castle play area and is based around what they might be imagining whilst playing there.
