Latest screens...

Game update for October....

-Bonus score system in place
-A bunch of new levels have been completed
-Power-up pickups in place
-Tweaks to player fire power - basically you can now shoot faster (and more lazer bullets) which opens up the design choices for some of the later levels.

Basically everything going smoothly at the moment, I'm spending most of the time right now building up the levels. Each one is different and unique. Just juggling my 'proper' job with game dev time

Anyway.... you don't want the text, you want MOAR SCREENZ....

November update....and it's a biggie.....

Development is still on track, and I'm starting to prepare for the final push and then some spit and polish. Oh, and the game now comes with an absolutely awesome rocking soundtrack by @FracturesAudio

Hopefully I can start an early beta test-flight sometime around the end of this month. Not all game levels will be complete by that time and some features like GameCenter probably won't be enabled by then either....but it will be good to get some community feedback as the game moves into the final quarter of development

I'll be asking for beta testers soon.

So to celebrate, why not check out this awesome new gameplay trailer complete with loads of new content and awesome music...

This looks fantastic! I love how the ship is paper-thin. Gameplay looks hectic and challenging. Right up my alley. I would love to get involved when you decide to start picking testers. Thanks in advance.

Awesome

This looks fantastic. The Uridium vibe has got me excited as that was my all time favourite C64 game.
Would love to beta test this.

Uridium was one of my favorite games on C64. Looking forward to Hyper Sentinel!

As a Starseed fan i'm looking forward to this little beauty. The great music by Fractures is also a genious move, imho. I would be honored to be a part of your beta version.
