Hyper Sentinel, the retro shooter that's a bit like Commodore 64 classic Uridium, is coming to Nintendo Switch as well as PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC later this summer.

Hyper Sentinel is from indie developer Jonathan Port and is published by Huey Games. Huey Games appears to be the new name for the revived Hewson Consultants, which I reported on in June 2016.

Huey Games was founded by Andrew Hewson (publisher of Uridium, Paradroid, Nebulus and Pinball Fantasies), Rob Hewson (game director on the handheld versions on Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Lego Batman 3 and Lego The Lord of the Rings), and John Ogden (technical lead on Hydrophobia - remember that?).

Back to Hyper Sentinel, it's a 60 frames per second arcade shooter with pixel-art graphics. There are online leaderboards, three difficulty modes and a SID-style chiptune soundtrack by Fractures.
