Sentinel 3: Homeworld - $0.99 sale celebrating expansion pack release!

We've just released an update to our award-winning sci fi Tower Defense Sentinel 3: Homeworld that includes a massive second campaign as DLC! To celebrate we've cut the price of the base game from $2.99 to $0.99 from now until after Memorial Day weekend - bargain! All players also get the first two levels of the expansion pack as a teaser, so you can try before you buy.

Here's a rundown of the expansion pack contents:

- A 15 level campaign across 15 brand new maps, each also available in Endless mode. The first two campaign levels are available as a free teaser for all Sentinel 3 owners.

- A new Commander mech, the Aurora armour, with heavy hitting ranged weaponry, new abilities, and an Energy Syphon capable of converting kills into ship energy. The Aurora armour levels independently from the original armour, and can be selected for Endless mode.

- Powerful new weaponry: the Disease and Artillery towers, and the Vortex and Turret Energizer Sentinel weapons. Once unlocked, new weapons can be used throughout the game.

- New enemies and enemy behaviour. Alien eggs spawn swarms to wreak havoc with barriers, while flying and amphibious enemies take paths unavailable to their ground bound comrades. Finally, the massive airborne Alien Behemoth provides the ultimate Sentinel challenge.

- Six new Classic challenges using Campaign Two maps, equipment and enemies. Take on the high score tables with a fixed set of weaponry in a contest of pure skill.

- Impatient for power? Max out your Armory or Commander instantly with new Shortcut in-app purchases.

do you have to have played the first 2 to get this game, or would it be fine to just get this?

You'll be fine starting with 3. The only plot you've missed is "Humans are attacked by aliens on Mars, then humans are attacked by aliens on Earth", leading into 3 where humans attack aliens on the alien homeworld

Best TD hands down on the iOS. If you like the genre at, get it.

Is the IAP's normal price going to stay at $1.99?

By the way, I agree with backtothis, this is an awesome game, especially for 99 stinkin' cents.

That's a sweet deal! New buyers will get both campaigns for the price of one (pre-sale).

Yep, this is definitely at the top of the list for best TDs on the app store.

how much is the new campain DLC?
this is the best tower defence game IMO.
but could use some better music...homeworld 1 and 2 had way better music.
also the graphics are not really superb when zooming in...

but the gameplay is perfect
