You had my attention with the first sentinel, I never suspected you could improve upon the second, but this really is the best one yet, and the promise of a universal binary made a no-brainer purchase even less thought dependent.

I've been playing this for a while, often thinking how odd it'll be to see it with "glasses on", I can't wait, it's a very polished game.



...one thing that'd make it perfect in my book, is an extra fast forward option, you have a 2x fast forward, I'd like to see a 4x as well, this would make the endless maps more enticing as once ive built a serious defence it can take AGES for the challenge to pick up again.

Great job guys, will you be adding extra maps or towers as dlc like you did with sentinel 2?

DLC map packs are almost certainly on the way in future, plus we've been considering iPad exclusive ones with paths and terrain designed for the extra screen real estate rather than simply scaled up from the standard game.
