Description from the packaging.

You are in a world where the only constant is energy, and where time is measured by the inevitable scanning of the Sentry and her agents, the Landgazers.

You search the landscape for trees, absorb them and their energy content is yours. But as you feed from the spares forests below you, you hear the Sentry and Landgazers shifting in their positions on high. Your sensors tell you that you have been spotted!

Desperately you seek somewhere to jump to, away from their cruel gaze. As they stare, your energy is drained inexorably, unit by unit. You line up your sights to jump...but too late! Your energy reserve is too low. Soon you have no reserves at all! Your worldview disintegrates, pixel by pixel, and you are cast into eternal darkness.

The Sentry takes gaming far beyond the frontiers of anything that you have ever seen. It contains 10,000 unique landscapes, each one represented in stunning solid-modeled 3D graphics.

It demands strategies never before conceived by the human brain. You will need to think like a chess grand master and react like an arcade champion.

Few will ever complete all the landscapes of the Sentry, but you will get hooked trying.

You don't think so?
