Origin8's sci-fi strategy Sentinel 3: Homeworld now available for PC from Impulse

London, UK - 2nd March 2012: British independent developers Origin8 are happy to announce that their award-winning science fiction Tower Defence game “Sentinel 3: Homeworld” is now available for the PC from the Impulse digital distribution platform, priced at $7.95/£4.99.

“As a keen PC gamer myself, I'm thrilled to see the Sentinel series launch on Impulse,” said programmer and designer Paul Jackman. “Digital distribution is a real boon to small studios such as ours.”

In Sentinel 3: Homeworld, the player takes command of the eponymous dropship Sentinel on a mission to cut off an interstellar alien invasion at the source. Pioneering Tower Defence game mechanics, refined throughout the development of the series, provide a wealth of options when dealing with the extraterrestrial threat:

  • A powerful commander unit which can level up and gain new abilities as you play
  • Unleash the Sentinel's incredible ship weapons system - if you've got the power to do so...
  • Customize your weapon loadout in the Armory to match the demands of the mission
  • Use the landscape and destructible defences to maximize the effectiveness of your weapons
  • Deploy mobile attack drones to harass the enemy and augment static structures
  • Construct boosters to buff your offence, and upgrade to top-tier towers for devastating special moves
  • Resource harvesting and interest system adds a new dimension of risk and reward
  • Hours of gameplay across an epic 20 level campaign, and additional Endless mode available for all maps
With 3 million downloads to date across three platforms, the Sentinel games have been widely recognised as some of the top strategy titles on iOS, Android and Mac. Accolades include Sentinel: Mars Defense being named as one of Apple's App Store Anniversary Top 30 games, and Sentinel 3: Homeworld taking Best iPhone Strategy Game at the Best App Ever awards.
