JETS’N’GUNS! It delivers what it promises, but the ship doesn’t look like a jet, BUT THAT’S ALRIGHT CAUSE YOU GET TO SHOOT THE HELL OUT OF EVERYTHING! I’m sad that I found this game so late. I should be shot into the sun for that.
This has become one of my all time favorite games. Its a horizontal shooter with the ability to “pimp your ship”. Choose a body, load it up with guns and fly out. ALSO, the game allows you to sell your stuff for the same price you bought it for, so go nuts and play around with the loadout to your hearts content. That alone made it a standout game and something to recommend to anyone new to shoot-em-ups.
If you’re a beginner, or just aren’t good at these types of games, start on “Too fat to die” so you can build currency. Every time you beat the game the game goes up a difficulty level and a good deal of them you can only access on beating the game through additional playthroughs and certain guns you can only get by playing on higher difficulties. ALSO your currency carries over in each playthrough.
A word to the wise. Their are several segments where you’ll be asked to leave your ride for another one. While some can be annoying, others can be enjoyable and help break up the monotony. Also, aftr going through one that drove you nuts makes getting back to shooting everything in your own ship of choice that much sweeter.
The only complaint I have with the game is that once these segments are over, you need to retweak your ship and the fact that you cannot save loadouts. Its annoying, but not enough for me to turn people away from it.
Its an old game, but its an old game that hold up VERY WELL. If you call yourself a fan of the shoot-em-up genre you are doing yourself a disservices by passing this up.
