Hyper Sentinel is a blistering side-scrolling shoot ’em up 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.
Jonathan has been inspired by the classic shoot ‘em ups he played in his youth such as Uridium, Tornado Low Level, Cybernoid, Delta, Armalyte, Sanxion and Defender. While Hyper Sentinel is loaded with retro references, Jonathan has also designed the game to offer a distinct shoot ‘em up experience, with a single button trade-off between shoot and boost, a regenerating health system, unique weapon upgrades and epic boss encounters. The result is a super-fast, action packed game which marries classic arcade action with contemporary gameplay.

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.
Intelligence reports indicate that causing damage to the Alienoid’s destroyers will, on occasion, trigger an energy leak which your Sentinel Fighter can absorb and convert to your advantage.
In an audacious operation, our agents have managed to plant these Powerdroids amongst the Alienoid fighters themselves. Each offers a unique and potent upgrade to your weaponry, but they will be moving at high speed so you may need to engage your boost engines to pursue and collect them.
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 our agents warn that the Alienoids are developing ever more advanced adversaries.
