App description: ***** Sentinel 4: Dark Star is now available! Get the series' latest epic installment here on the App Store! *****

It's war, and this time it's too close to home. The Martian mission may be over, but the aliens haven't finished playing space invaders yet.

Extraterrestrial eyes have turned to a new target: they want Earth, and you're the one that has to say 'no'!
Welcome to the future of TD.

Sentinel 2: Earth Defense expands upon the acclaimed gameplay of Sentinel: Mars Defense. The action takes place across varied, lushly rendered Earth environments, and the alien assault force has grown more vicious than ever. Luckily, human turret technology has also advanced, and the ship weapons system provides a spectacular new way to eradicate invaders!

What I think is that I would like to buy the DLC, but I can't find it. Where do I press to access/purchase it?

Thanks, Michael

On the map selection screen, swipe through the maps until Barracks or Overpass (the last two maps). There should be a "buy" button replacing "play"

Found it, thanks. Purchased.

You might want to make it a bit more prominent. I bet a lot of people who just update without reading "what's new" on iTunes will never even know its there.

Also, if you add functionality to the program to change orientation when the device is turned over, I would really appreciate it.

Regards, Michael

I love Sentinel 2. Bought it a couple of weeks ago after playing Sentinel 1 when it was offered free. Great games!

Not ready to buy more content yet, but maybe in the future. I don't have much time for games as it is.

You aim it the same way as the orbital laser/slow beam. The bomb will drop on the target and cause explosion damage, and then switch to sustained ION damage for a number or seconds, harming anything that runs through the red ION field.

I hope that helps
