The Sentinel, released in the United States as The Sentry, is a puzzle video game created by Geoff Crammond, published by Firebird in 1986 for the BBC Micro and converted to the Commodore 64 (by Crammond himself), Amstrad CPC (with a cross-compiler written by Crammond), ZX Spectrum (by Mike Follin), Atari ST, Amiga (both by Steve Bak) and IBM PC compatibles (by Mark Roll). The Sentinel was among the first games to use solid-filled 3D graphics on home computers. It won numerous awards upon release and has since appeared on several "best video games of all time" lists.

  • The Sentinel (в США была издана как The Sentry) — компьютерная игра, созданная Джеффом Крэммондом, изданная компанией Firebird Software в 1986 году для Commodore 64 и портированная на BBC Micro (самим Крэммондом), Amstrad CPC, ZX Spectrum (Майком Фолином), Atari ST, Amiga (оба Стивом Баком) и PC (Майком Роллом). The Sentinel является одной из первых игр, которые выполнены в полном 3D для домашних компьютеров. The Sentinel лучше всего описать как «игру управления энергией». Игра обладает видом от первого лица и несколькими тысячами уровней. (ru)
