About this project
DEMO: The goal is to bring Hyper Sentinel to PC & iOS, with additional platforms and features as stretch goals including Android and console versions. Development is much further along on iOS, so we have a demo available for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV. However, due to Apple rules availability is limited as per the reward tiers. Back now to get your demo!
Hyper Sentinel is a blistering side-scrolling shooter presented by Andrew Hewson, founder of Hewson Consultants (Uridium, Paradroid, Nebulus, Zynaps, Cybernoid, Quazatron, Stormlord, Exolon, Eliminator) and 21st Century Entertainment (Pinball Dreams, Pinball Fantasies).
Andrew Hewson’s companies famously discovered and promoted legendary developers like Steve Turner, Andrew Braybrook and Raffaele Cecco. Now, with the discovery of a new bedroom coder talent, Jonathan Port, a new shoot ’em up classic is about to be born.
Hyper Sentinel is a love letter to old school arcade action and the computer shoot ’em ups of the 1980s, enhanced with its own unique style of fast-paced, skillful blasting.
The Sentinel Fighter
The Sentinel is the most advanced hyper-drive equipped fighter in the fleet. Designed to launch a surprise attack on the Alienoids’ most feared space destroyers and to outmanoeuvre their defences, only the most skilled pilots are capable of operating it.
Collectibles & Power Ups
When used wisely, these power ups can transform your fortunes in battle. They will vanish quickly, but that’s where the Sentinel’s boost engines come in handy.
Some intelligence on the Alienoids’ defensive capabilities has been obtained, but it is limited at best. Study the following information carefully, but be prepared for the unexpected.
Reports indicate that each of the Alienoids’ space destroyers is now equipped with a devastating final response weapon. Information is sketchy and reports indicate that the Alienoids are developing ever more advanced adversaries.
