It's a great game and would be a nice match for the device.

One problem to solve is who owns the rights to the game these days. The last publisher to put out an official game based on the IP (Sentinel Returns) was Psygnosis, who I believe was acquired by Sony. If the rights remain with Psygnosis, it's unlikely that we'd see an official remake on the iPhone.

Your wish is my command!

Random that I should find this thread, but I actually have a Sentinel style game in review right now - it's called "The Watcher" and should have passed cert by the end of next week. Nice that somebody out there remembers the original, I feel rather old whenever I think about it.

It is a great match for the device BTW, the touchscreen is perfect to move your view about. There's 75 levels and also a configurable random level generator, so you can make infinite levels at your own skill level.

Here are some pics of The Watcher :

Looks good Andy. You should start a thread about the game in the upcoming games forum.

Hah! You wait for months, and then two come along at once!

Mine is still a work in progress, as the strange sideways buttons demonstrate, but it is getting closer to completion...
