London, April 10th 2018: Huey Games is proud to announce a release date for its pioneering arcade space shooter, Hyper Sentinel, available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC from May 11th.

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.”

The game 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.

The fun doesn’t stop here; stay tuned for more exciting announcements for Hyper Sentinel!
