You guys have always been great about communicating with us and taking feedback, so can I make a comment please? I updated and was playing the new levels. The dialog said to collect energy pods, so I was tapping on the new thing that had appeared on the bottom with a number on it, as I thought that's what it was. Well, I finished the level, went to upgrade a tower, and discovered that almost of my stars were gone. Just like that. I've been hoarding them for a play-through on psycho, had several hundred, and now they're just...gone. I wanted to throw my iPad across the room. It was so frustrating! I wish it had been clearer. I've played all of the Sentinels and certainly wasn't expecting the update to make it so all of my carefully saved stars could be easily and accidentally spent.

Ouch, thanks for letting us know. Those buttons are actually just a new use for Star Fragments - you can top up your Stronghold or Ship energy instantly if you're in a tight corner. We'll see if we can make that a bit clearer.

SENTINEL 4: DARK STAR - Probably the best Tower Defence in the Galaxy
TRANSPORT TYCOON - The definitive version of the classic business sim

Thanks -- I actually think they are convenient there, it was just the accidental spending that made me a bit crazy, because at the time I thought I was collecting. It's a WONDERFUL game. 😊

The freebie's due to run until Monday - not sure what you mean by "Completely FTP" but it's just a brief special offer, no game mechanics have been altered.

If you've already got the game remember to spread the word. More players means more Nexus rewards for everybody

Obviously we can't do this without your support, and it's doubly important as the majority of our fans know us through tablets and smartphones, not desktops and laptops. Hit the link and give us a thumbs up if you think Sentinel 4: Dark Star deserves a spot on Steam:
