'Hyper Sentinel' (ALL) Gets Release Date, Playable At EGX Rezzed - Trailer

Hyper Sentinel is a pure arcade flip and scroll shooter, shot through with classic gameplay in a state-of-the-art, modern game.

A face-melting, pixel-pumping arcade shoot 'em up featuring awesome power-ups, epic boss battles and spectacular effects at a blistering 60fps. Blast into battle against giant space destroyers in Arcade Mode, tackle endless waves of enemies in Survival Mode and face off against epic level guardians in Boss Run mode.

Hyper Sentinel doesn’t just inspire nostalgia – it repackages what makes people nostalgic and adds a smart, modern feel to create the ultimate Neo-Retro experience.

With simple controls, fast-paced action and intuitive gameplay, Hyper Sentinel is the ultimate pick-up-and-play experience that lets players jump into the role of a lone ship defending the earth from marauding aliens, adding no extra waffle than that.

“After a lot of hard work we’re super excited to be able to announce a release date,” said Rob Hewson, CEO and Creative Director at Huey Games. “I’d also like to issue another huge thanks to all our Kickstarter backers who I know will love this game.”

“Hyper Sentinel will take older gamers right back to their roots with an updated feel,” said game creator Jonathan Port of Four5Six Pixel. “Meanwhile the new generation’s thrill-seekers can satisfy their urge for action and epic boss battles without wading through a plot.”

Hyper Sentinel will be available to play this week at EGX Rezzed 2018 at Tobacco Docks, London, on the Tentacle Collective stand. Three playable levels across the range of platforms will be available for players to get their itchy trigger fingers on before release.

Key Features:

  • Awesome power-ups and devastating weapon upgrades including the Astro Mace and Plasma Rifle
  • The ultimate high-score chasing arcade game, with online leaderboards and 3 difficulty modes
  • Become a decorated Hyper Sentinel pilot with 60 challenging medals to complete
  • 12 electrifying levels featuring epic, multi-stage boss encounters
  • Multiple graphics options, including the nostalgia inducing Spectrum, C64 and CRT filters
  • A hyper-charged love letter to arcade classics

Hyper Sentinelis set to arrive on PC, Switch, PS4 and Xbox One starting May 11, 2018.
