Origin8, makers of the popular tower defense games Sentinel: Mars Defense and Sentinel 2: Earth Defense, are set to take the fight to space. Their third sci-fi strategy game takes place a century after the last title, and according to Origin8…

Space Station: Frontier sees the player in charge of a deep space mining operation in dangerous territory on the edge of Solar System. By constructing and powering networks of mining tools and weaponry – centred on the titular space station – players must juggle resource harvesting with the defence of their station against hordes of hostile alien ships.

As you can see from the trailer below, Space Station: Frontier adds some interesting wrinkles to the core defense gameplay, as there is an upgrade and management component to your expanding space station. Origin8 has stated that this is a persistent upgrade system, allowing you to level up your station with a variety of purchased tech, and then carry over your customisation across all game modes.


Space Station: Frontier was submitted for approval on December 14th, so we should be able to get our hands on it within the next couple weeks. The full list of features is as follows:

  • Construct weaponry and mining tools using an intuitive tower defense style interface.
  • Design and power vast networks of structures, then defend them against alien incursion!
  • Earn upgrades and unlocks for your space station to increase its power and abilities!
  • Enjoy the story-based campaign mode where you are humanity’s last chance for survival.
  • Play one of the freeform, endless modes and compete with other players worldwide using the online leaderboards.
  • Mission mode provides quick tactical challenges. Beat a scenario to earn achievements!
  • Full OpenFeint integration provides multiple user profiles, complete offline support, online scores and lots achievements to earn.
  • Awesome music & sound effects by Earcom!
  • Also, as we reported last week, you can experience the original, critically-acclaimed Sentinel: Mars Defense for free until Christmas…

    A combination of fantastic graphics and multi-layered complex gameplay make Sentinel 2 the best tower defense game on the App Store. Be warned - it may be tough to go back to seemingly simple TD games after experiencing what Sentinel 2 has to offer.

    Sentinel is easily one of the best tower defense games in the App Store, and genre fans would be crazy not to get this one. Beyond the awesome eye candy, it's a pleasure to play...oh, and you get to blow aliens to bits. What more do you need?
