Because side scroller shooters NOTORIOUS for levels without an actual ship (gl tracking your character in pure chaos on screen) or levels where you have 0 idea what to do or levels where you cant shoot, sure.

Good game, a fine shoot-em-up. Interesing upgrade mechanics, lasted me a good while, and overall I can't say I had any disappointments about it. 10/10 enough explosions and carnage to make Micheal Bay proud.

Fly the Wanderwurst sausage and pain seller, bomb a zombie safari park, have little Supermen as rockets and escort some fine science ladys through space while protecting them from Mr. Lover and his sperm shooting spaceships. All in one game, while Machinae Supremacy plays some nice electronic metal (also called SID Metal) in the background, you can even bomb a concert! You want it, don't you lie!

This is the best side scroll shoot 'Em up I have ever played.

So many cool weapons to choose from. Unlimited ways to customize your ship.

I have been playing this game for several years.

I hope one day there will be another game like this one.
If you know of one, let me know.

I´m a fan of classic shmups, from R-type and Gradius to more obscure japanese titles, but I must say I don´t get this game. And I really tried to like it. Maybe I was expecting something different...
Starting from the user interface, that´s always in the way and has poor gamepad compatibility. I´ve seen arcade/console ports that are more user friendly.
To the weapon system, that's hart to set up, and you end up spending gold in stuff that's not even an actual wapon! The missions are a bit confusing, no middle boss, no level boss? No, you must destroy this or that and good luck finding it!

Yes, I didn´t go past the first level. I was bored to death shooting peas to ramdom space garbage way before I did.

This is a conditional recomendation... I only recommend it on the condition that you are good at hardcore shoot-em-ups... if not, steer clear, because this game is really hard. Once ships start flying out from behind you, (if you suck like me) expect your survival time to be counted in seconds rather than minutes.

There's a fun game here to be sure, but I think only the better shmup players are going to find it. It's got a lot of style and it is a blast when you are actually surviving. I get super mad, and I want to quit playing it because I'm terrible at this style of game, but at the same time, I want to keep playing because it's a cool game.

I would say, if your good at this type of game get it, because you'll have a ton of fun with it. If not, wait until they package it with other games again, or it goes on super sale.

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. :)

Ahh, the best damn side-scroller shump I've ever played.

Tons of levels, tons of weapons, awesome soundtrack and just plain fun! Almost every level you beat will unlock another gun, missile or bomb to try out! All the weapons can be upgraded to do more damage, have a larger spread and just look more awesome! There are space missions, missions where bombs are a must to clear out land enemies, missions where you fly in a jetpack with 2 giant guns strapped to it... lol

There are secret ships, levels and weapons to find too!

A lot of the ships have different powerups they can get and weapon slots... for example one ship might have 3 forward weapon slots and a bomb slot whereas another ship might have 2 forward slots, one rear slot and missile AND bomb slot. All ships have different hull integrity, heat sink and agility so that further sets them a part! Gotta choose the right ship for the mission!

Man, its freakin awesome so don't let the older graphics turn you away! Its a glorious high-action explosive game!

One my favourite highly customizable shmups from several years ago on Steam? YES PLEASE! Time has not aged this beast too badly at all. It still looks good, throws out the challenge, and the soundtrack is as kicking as ever thanks to Machinae Supremacy bringing some hard-♥♥♥ rock-metal into the mix.

I originally played Jets'n'Guns years ago, and had an absolute blast. However I never actually paid for the game.

Finally, years later it is released on Steam and it's just as awesome as when it originally came out.

Jets 'n' Guns is a fantastic space side scrolling shooter, with heaps of equipment to buy and loads of upgrades. The soundtrack is absolutely fantastic and very fitting.

My favorite part about J'n'G is being able to try countless configurations on the ships to see which combination will help me finally finish my current level. When you buy an item you can always sell it back for the buying value, so you are never restricted to what combinations you want to attempt.

This is an intense retro shooter with a crazy amount of replayability, don't miss this one out!

YEEEEESSSSSSSSSS! One of the best shmups of all time is now on Steam? YES. The one where you can customize and upgrade your ship? YES. What, it's only $7.00, and it's on sale for $3.50? YES. It has cards too? YES. Instant buy.

Seriously, if you've never played Jets'n'Guns yet, do yourself a favor and buy it. It's loads of fun, cheap, and challenging to boot. I've actually dumped many hours into this game dispite my recorded playing time on Steam. I plan to spend many more now that it's here.

So much fun, a challenging game with a huge arsenal to choose from at your own will, amusing humour and an amazing soundtrack by Machinae Supremacy (that's included as separate files for free!) for just a few bucks? This is a robbery. For the developers.

It's not just a good sidescrolling shooter. This game does its job, with a blast.
Don't get fooled by the cheesy looking graphics, as the game was released for quite some time before it even reached Steam. They get the job done and JnG looks pleasant enough for an old 2d shooter.
