Really FUN action game most of the time beautiful with a lot (a lot !) of cool/weird weapons

Advice 1: most important: play on EASY when you start the game or you will be disgusted by the difficulty. Once you have finished the game it will automatically continue on the next level of difficulty with all your money/items kept.

Advice 2: alway try different weapons configurations and upgrade weapons. Remember : there is no penalty in selling weapons (no money lost). And read the advices the game give sometimes about the kind of weapons you need.

Advice 3: You might have to run to survive a level if your weapons are not good enough (for me it was in the Beer level).

The Good:

-Insane Side-Scroller.
-Lots of levels, weapons, and secrets.
-I haven't finished it yet, and i know i'll replay it with different ships, mods, and weapon combos.

The bad:

- Weak story.
- Enemy bullets are often confused with the environment.

Everyone who likes Shmups (Shoot Em Up), should try out Jets'n'Guns at least once, so far I have yet to see a game like this, taking all parts into account at leasr. The upgrade system is fun and allows players to do things their own way, the levels are crafted with care and details and for every level a some loadouts may work better than others, giving the choice of weapon a certain depth. Not to mention there is a small story with many funny references around as well.

The game is several year old and even though it is we still get regular patches which is something not many games can say about themselves.

This is a wonderful game! nuff said!!

I would happily place this game in the same league as top Shmups like R-Type and Gradius. Wonderful graphics, nice and clean and crisp to look at with a sweet soundtrack.

It even has a good degree of customisation with being able to kit your plane out with any sort of weaponry it can hold and has a nice upgrade system for your plane and weapons. Kinda reminds me of the original Carmageddon with the upgrades, just hit the + sign and spend your money.

Theres also a lil bit of a Mechwarrior system in game where your plane generates heat when weapons are used, so you may have to use your guns a lil more wisely as opposed to spray and pray.

All in all, this is a good game and its super reasonably priced. So if you got a lil bit of spare cash, this is worth a punt.

This game has the best ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ soundtrack of any shmup I've played, with the possible exceptions of Danmaku Unlimited 2 and Mushihimesama Futari. It's a sidescroller, obviously, and is definitely not a bullet hell game. It's more in the vein of Raptor: Call of the Shadows. Customizable ships and guns, sometimes-unavoidable hits, that sort of thing. It's viscerally satisfying and a complete blast to play. The "humor" and story is a little stupid, it feels like the kind of thing a college-aged kid would throw together over a drunken weekend. But you can just play the game and not care about it. Protip: unless you hate yourself, just start on Too Fat to Die. It's way more fun that way.

Jets'n'Guns is a Shoot Em Up, also called a 2D sidescrolling space shooter. I have spent at least 200 hours playing this game by myself/ when I was younger and I instantly bought this game on steam.

There's an insane number of weapons to buy, you can level them up, you can purchase upgrades for your ship, pick a combination of weapons you like depending on your playstyle. There's also a good selection of bombs and missiles.

The music is amazing ( 30+ soundtracks from Machinae Supremacy, an amazing Sid Metal band, ) the replayability is good, they added achievements, trading cards, some tweaks and it works on 1920x1080 resolution. I recommend buying this game in a heartbeat if you liked any kind of space shooters because it's always been my favorite one and you will definately like it.

After playing for an hour or so, I can tell it's just as good as I remember it, but, I also used to play on easy and I just tried hard, way too hard for me, normal offers me a fair challenge and the game is very enjoyable. :)
