    There are a few Sentinel: Mars Defense fans around here, so we thought you'd like to know that a sequel, Sentinel 2: Earth Defense, is now live on the App Store, priced at $2.99: http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=320388936&mt=8

    Official trailer (and sweet tunes): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4DBooXpiDSU

    As posted on some other forums when I saw it released, bought immediately and loving it, beautiful fluid animations and graphics.

    I'm hoping you guys bring a few updates out on this version to keep adding new maps/layouts just to keep it extending for a while longer as I think that's what most people like to see.

    Great work, wish you every success!

    Geez this is absolutely a no-brainer buy. Loved Sentinel.

    Does this mean though that you are going to stop updating Sentinel: Mars Defense? I wanted the ability to have all the turrets available on all 4 of the maps, not just the last 2.

    Bump to this as I just started playing. WOW this has like 3x the content as the first App of yours.

    When I first tapped the missile defense system from the spaceship and saw the missiles flying around everywhere I was stunned. This is awesome! The best TD game by far right now.

    Good to hear everyone's enjoying the game! :D

    Khryz, I suspect we replied to you on another forum, but just in case that was a different person with the same questions: we're not currently planning on enabling all towers on all maps in Sentinel 1, as that would affect balance for the high score tables. We ARE still supporting Sentinel 1 with bugfixes and performance enhancements, but new content will depend on sales. Dev's got to eat!

    The original Sentinel is one of the few games that I've kept on my iPhone after downloading quite a few games. It was always a challenging but rewarding game and I have to admit I've lost a few hours of life playing it.

    Look forward to the latest Sentinel 2 .. downloading now .. keep up the great work guys.

    Love it.

    Loved Sentinel and Sentinel 2 tops it!!!!
    Was a bit concerned about paying for what appears at first to be the same game, but the new content provides new challenges and creates a new feel.

    Great work!

    Version 1.1 has been submitted for approval. Here's the list of changes:
    So a few usability tweaks and a couple of fresh challenge missions, hopefully available soon. It's nice to know Sentinel 1 fans are finding Earth Defense a worthwhile purchase :)
