Great Game. The first 3-4 levels are a bit on the tough side, so you will need to be very carefull what you spend your $ on. After that around level 20 ish it gets pretty easy and the last 10 levels are boringly easy. total of 40 ish rounds. After you finish it, the game re-sets & you start over with all your stuff on a higher difficulty. I love the BGM, The writing is a bit on the childish side but I would have laughed at everything if I was younger. 2 thumbs up for the amount of content and price.

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.

This is a really challanging SHMUp. You WILL die. Like, a LOT.
But don't let the difficulty frighten you.
Git gud.

Also, awesome soundtrack by Machinae Supremacy, check them out.

Skill based game, just the right difficulty for me, colorful explodey art style.
I don't play that many SHMUP / Bullet Hell games (I have a few) but I find this game difficulty at just the right amount. I usually fail a handful of times before I learn what each enemy does and their pattern on that stage. It always seems like the part I'm low on hull points and die is just before there's a repair kit and a checkpoint, so if I play a bit better I pass.

There's a large variety of enemies and themes in this game so you're not stuck fighting the same exact enemies for too long like alot of games. The story points before/after missions are funny. Bunch of different weapons. Weapons and ships can be upgraded. A very cool thing is that everything you buy/upgrade you can sell back including what you spent on upgrades for full price I believe, so you're free to experiment and not be locked into weapons that don't fit your play style or the level. All that I expect from this genre, and the game does it well.

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.
