Nostalgia abound in new flip and scroll shooter.
Hyper Sentinel is a pure arcade flip and scroll shooter, shot through with classic gameplay in a state-of-the-art, modern game. It 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 plot.”
Hyper Sentinel is coming to Steam, PS4, Xbox One and Switch on the 11th of May. It’s also being displayed at EGX Rezzed this year and we’ll be sure to let you know what we think of the scrolling shooter.
