London, UK - 7th May 2009: Origin8 are pleased to announce that Sentinel version 1.4 is now live in the iTunes App Store.

Key version 1.4 features:

• A new tower and alien attack unit, each with a fresh set of powers and far-reaching tactical implications.

• A new destructible building that you’ll really want to keep standing.

• Improved drones that can be commanded to concentrate on harvesting or repair.

• More powerful top tier upgrades for some towers.

• Optional atmospheric in-game music.
