Sentry Knight Conquest
The team behind Sentry Knight and its sequel take the popular series in an unexpected new direction with Sentry Knight Conquest, where, rather than playing the tower-bound bow-wielding knight, you're actually in control of the surly marksman, who's in a race to stop an invasion in this action-packed shooter. Using [WASD] to move and the mouse to aim and shoot (controls are fully customiseable to any keys under the options!), blast and dodge enemies as you move around the field in each level, making sure to nab any coins dropped by enemies to spend on upgrades between stages. As you slay foes, you'll level up, which unlocks or allows you to enhance powerful abilities like the explosive blast, and you'll even unlock pets, each with their own way of helping you in combat. Like its predecessors, Sentry Knight Conquest looks fantastic, and has surprisingly well-written few snippets of story to flesh things out as you go. It is, however, very different from the other games in the series, though still just as grind-y when it comes to money and levels. Still, it's a rock solid little shooter with a ton of charm and personality, and if you like the team's work, you'll definitely want to keep an eye out for the upcoming Sentry Knight Tactics, as well as vote for it on Steam Greenlight. So take up yon blunderbuss and blast ye merry skeletons, because it's time to get medieval up in here!
