Default Sentinel - New TD

Sentinel - $4.99 (8.4 MB)

Fist impressions (I'm playing and I'll update this in the next minutes):

Before playing:

- it loads fast
- 2 game modes: Assault and Endurance (it’s locked)
- 4 difficulty levels: easy to psycho
- 3 maps (only the 1st is unlocked)
- spaceship hud alike interface, quite nice, with a matching background music

Playing:

- 60 waves (1st map)
- pinch to zoom in/out
- easy to place towers and a nice animation when it is built
- subtle sounds (no annoying sound when a new wave starts)
- towers (at least the ones I can play right now) mix to the background texture like in 7 Cities which is not good. After plying more the towers kind of stand out due the animations (good)
- upgrades change the tower appearance (great!)
- the first map has a barrier to contain the waves (something like an obstacle so aliens have to break it to access the other part of the map)
- one of the best tower animations I've seen so far
- if you have enough money you can fix structures

I'll play it more for sure. Everything feels right about this TD. Very polished. I can't believe it's only 8.4 MB. After playing some minutes (so it's not a review) I have that "I want more" feeling that lacked for me while playing Garden Defender.

Wow...looks very impressive!


edit: Just saw the vid...I am getting it, looks to be easily on par with field-runners and 7cities which are like the big 2 of TD games

Stunning graphics. Unfortunately bad timing. I've spent so much that I won't be purchasing this any time soon.

The graphics look sick and very detailed. I wonder how it plays compared to the other TD games like Field Runners or geodefense. At 4.99 don't know if I will bite.

Me too, i've bought like 3 $5 games in a row... I can't justify this quite yet... I'll just sit on the side-lines and hope that I hear some good feedback!

That video they have is great, i wish it were longer, or that there were a couple other ones to watch.. I like the look of the upgrade system..

I think I'll get this title. I like geoDefense but I'm waiting for the first update. Garden Defender is just OK. So...

Look impressive indeed, but I won't touch it at this price with no "Lite" versions.
