Hard Nova had a character creation element that allowed players to choose their gender, and, unlike Sentinel Worlds I, lead a group of mercenaries.
The game was reviewed in 1991 in Dragon #167 by Hartley, Patricia, and Kirk Lesser in "The Role of Computers" column. The reviewers gave the game 5 out of 5 stars. Scorpia of Computer Gaming World in April 1991 stated that Hard Nova greatly improved on Sentinel Worlds, and concluded that it "is a pretty decent game, with some interesting touches and a good storyline. While not a long-term epic, it should keep you occupied for awhile". Ken St. Andre wrote in the same issue that "it is a very good real-time shoot-'em-up game", but that the combat became boring and amoral and the game offered little exploration.
