Calling all Sentinels! Do you have what it takes to defend the Multiverse? Compose a team of superheroes, each with their own playstyles, backstories, and grudges. Pit them against a variety of maniacal and formidable villains. Defeat your enemies and save the Multiverse!

Sentinels of the Multiverse is the award-winning game in which players join forces as heroes to combat a dastardly villain in a dynamic environment. At long last, you can play a 100% faithful adaptation of Sentinels on your iPad!

The digital version of Sentinels of the Multiverse plays like a comic book come to life! If you’ve ever turned the page to a climactic battle between Heroes and Villains and thought “I wish I could control this,” then Sentinels is the game for you!

The rules of the game are deceptively simple: Play a Card, Use a Power, and Draw a Card. What makes Sentinels of the Multiverse unique is that each card has special abilities that can create powerful combos or even change the rules of the game!

This digital version includes all content from the Sentinels of the Multiverse Enhanced Edition:

  • 10 Heroes: Absolute Zero, Bunker, Fanatic, Haka, Legacy, Ra, Tachyon, Tempest, The Visionary, & The Wraith
  • 4 Villains: Baron Blade, Citizen Dawn, Grand Warlord Voss, & Omnitron
  • 4 Environments: Insula Primalis, Megalopolis, Ruins of Atlantis, & Wagner Mars Base

Every rule & interaction in the game has been carefully adapted and thoroughly tested by expert Sentinels players, as well as the designer himself. If you’re wondering how a certain situation works in SotM, this game is the ultimate rules lawyer!

“Beautifully implemented but tablet only”

If you are familiar with Sentinels of the Multiverse, the first thing that will strike you about the app version of the game is how faithfully both the imagery and rules have been implemented. The art has actually been nicely expanded, with the locations being more detailed and most villains have alternate art.

Considering presentation and user interface, SotM is top notch at all levels. It is a lovely game, with crisp, clean graphics, and the user interface is consistent and friendly to use. The only annoyance is that in order to read cards, you have to zoom into them, but this is handled very nicely indeed as they intelligently allow you to play the cards from zoom and advance through other cards as well.

Playing the game is fun and friendly. The rules are all cleanly implemented and nary a book keeping error will happen which is nice given this game’s propensity for modifiers. There are opportunities to allow the game to decide how to allocate damage or healing which can be a nice time saver. The only niggling bit here is that it would simply be nice if there was a central place to look to see all of the modifiers in effect – as it stands now, I believe you have to step through cards and mentally arrive at what could just be shown.

In terms of stability, I found that the game was much more reliable once the page-style animation was turned off in the options. I am using an older Galaxy Tab 10.1 and it was crashing quite a bit until I disabled this option. Prior to disabling this, I suffered multiple crashes, with one being epic in the sense that my tablet turned completely off – something that I have not seen in three years of using this tablet.

The biggest downside is that this app is tablet only. There is just too much to display, I suppose, and it takes a tablet to play it. I’d still give it a try on a phablet…

All in all, SoTM is an excellent app that will almost certainly improve as time marches on and expansions are released.
