Sentinel: Mars Defense - FREE for its FIRST ANNIVERSARY! (19th Feb)

Origin8's Feb Freebie Fever continues, and today we get to the game that inspired this promotion. Sentinel: Mars Defense was released one year ago today, and to celebrate it'll be FREE for the weekend, in association with OpenFeint's Free Game of the Day!

So far this month we've had Car Mania hit #5 US Free Game and MonsterKill reach #10 - let's see what Sentinel can do! Also of interest, the new Space Station: Frontier content update finally provides us with an image of the venerable dropship Sentinel! Grab it and take a look!



While you're at it, remember to grab the free standalone OpenFeint app, to keep up to date with Free Game of the Day. Our final Feb Freebie Fever giveaway runs next weekend!

Fantastic news!

I bought Sentinel 2 a few days ago and am addicted to it, then yesterday I bought your other game Space Station Frontier I tink it's called and am LOVING that too!


Fantastic games by fantastic developers!

No problem, hope you bring Sentinel 3 out?!
Quick question, what's the main difference with Sentinel 1 and 2?

Thanks!

Thanks!
The biggest change between the two games was the addition of the ship/orbital weapons for Sentinel 2: Earth Defense. The core gameplay is the same but refined for the sequel. Plus of course the maps and setting are different in each game.

Been playing both and they are both superb games, Sentinel 2 is obviously a lot better as it has more features, my number 1 series on the app store!
