Hi, it's been a little while since I was able to update the progress on Hyper Sentinel. Sorry about the information blackout.

For those old enough to remember Andrew Hewson's company produced some of the finest games on the planet for ZX Spectrum, Commodore and Amstrad in the 1980s. Hits include Paradroid, Uridium, Avalon, Ranarama, Cybernoid, Nebulus (Tower Toppler)... the list goes on. He also discovered the programmers now known as DICE.

So it is with very great pleasure that I can announce that Hyper Sentinel is now being published by Andrew Hewson. We've been working very closely together for the last 6 months to make Hyper Sentinel the very best game we can for you guys.

I can also announce that Hyper Sentinel is now coming to iPhone, iPad and Apple TV.

Keep an eye here in the coming days where I can share with you the latest gameplay video.

We would like to add some extra features, extra soundtracks (by Fractures) as well as bring the game to other platforms. To do this we are running a new Kickstarter this Friday, with loads of goodies!

Take a hop over to Hyper Sentinel to sign up for early alerts!

Keep checking back here this week for more.....

This game looks awesome!!! How much is it going to cost?

My screen name is misunderstood. I am not some arrogant person who thinks he's so cool. Cool, because I like cold weather and Pepper because I'm hot.

Thanks Space Pirate Cat!

It's inspired by lots of games, Uridium was (still is) a cracking game. We've made this one a little more accessible, it has 3 difficulty settings including a special Retrogamer mode.

Thanks you so much for the kind words

We haven't decided a price just yet, but it will be affordable with no ads or extra purchases. It will also be a universal app across iPhone, iPad and AppleTV with cloud game saves between the 3.
