A játékról

A Jamestown: Legend Of The Lost Colony egy neo-klasszicista felülnézetes lövöldözős játék legfeljebb 4 játékosnak, mely a 17. századi Brit Gyarmati Marson játszódik. Rendelkezik a klasszikus árkád lövöldözős játékok intenzitásával, összetettségével és szeretettel készített pixelgrafikájával, plusz egy modern csavarral; erősen integrált együttműködő játékmenettel.
A legtöbb felülnézetes lövöldözős játékkal ellentétben, ahol több játékos osztozik egy adott számú életen vagy folytatási lehetőségen, a Jamestown valami mást csinál. Amíg csak egy játékos is életben marad, vissza lehet hozni a csapatot a halálból. Hatalmat adva mindegyik játékosnak arra, hogy kimenthesse csapatát a pusztulás markából, a Jamestown frissítő többjátékos élményt hoz létre, melyben valóban mindegyik játékos közreműködése számít. Győztök vagy veszítetek, a csapatotok együtt teszi azt.

Fő jellemzők:


  • Lőjetek utat magatoknak a történelmi Marson át egy legfeljebb 4 barátból álló remek csapattal helyi együttműködő módban
  • Csodáld és élvezd a hatalmas kiterjedésű, szeretettel készített pixelgrafikát
  • Menekülj el egy gyors tempójú, kalandos bosszú-történetbe
  • Epikus, pályánként egyedi nagyzenekari zeneszámok Francisco Cerda zeneszerzőtől
  • Merészkedj ki az ellenséges marsi határvidékre 1619. legjobb steampunk fegyvereivel
  • Válj a klasszikus felülnézetes lövöldözős játékmenettel párosuló innovatív együttműködő játékmechanizmusok mesterévé
  • Tedd próbára ügyességed több mint 20, a szabályokat szabadon értelmező bónuszpályán
  • Menj végig a „Gauntlet” árkád módon, és játszd úgy a Jamestownt, mintha 1996. lenne
  • Használd ki a különleges pontozási rendszert, hogy az online ranglisták élére kapaszkodj
  • Érd el a több mint 30 Steam teljesítmény mindegyikét... ha tudod!

This is a very arcade-like bullet hell with only few but very different scenarios. The characters play fairly different and the DLC does a good job in expanding the roster.
The difficulty can be scaled to insane levels and the challenges are super hard. The boss battles are quite epic.

The backgrounds are truly beautiful but at the same time that is the games biggest problem. Some enemies blend in so nicely that it can be hard to identify them in front of the scenery.

People who like difficult games and to fight over and over untill they finally beat that one level cannot go wrong with this game. At the same time that is all it has to offer, much playtime condensed to a few levels.
Also a good choice if you are into highscores.

that's a really good game! story is meh, but graphics, gameplay, level design and visual style are really good. there's nothing more to say about it.

it only has two problem:
1) too short
2) to unlock some levels the game forces you to complete the previous ones on a certain difficulty, it's nothing impossible, but I really don't like this choise


PS: as soon as it downloads, right click->properties->betas->opt in for legacy version. the new version turns projectile grey making them much more difficult to avoid.

Excellent shoot em up version of the true story of Britain's colonisation of Mars.

Great learning curve and replayability.

If you buy the game, immediately opt in to the legacy build. The most up to date version of the game turns projectiles a dull gray colour, and loses the vibrancy of the earlier build. Plus tactically you need to be able to see what bullets are red and which are blue.

Don't expect any more updates or fixes from the devs. They've abandoned the PC version and moved onto the console version of the game.

Very, very good!

I have around 40 offline hours for this game that i played with a few buddies. Great game for local coop. The DLC is excellent and I still boot this up every now and again just to challenge my old high score or try it on a new difficulty. Haters gonna hate I suppose, but to me this is a game that will be locked in my memory forever.

I must admit that when I had the opportunity to review Jamestown, a title developed & published by Final Form Games, I immediately jumped at the chance - being the avid shmup fanatic that I am. And let's face it, within the Steam universe there certainly exists no shortage of mediocre ones to play...those that tried to emulate the heart & soul of arcade shooters but which ultimately lacked that certain magic and polish to them. However I always heard very glowing accolades about this particular title, but are they warranted? Let's find out below.

The game touts itself as having "lovingly handcrafted pixels", and it is my pleasure to report that these retro-styled 2D graphics are absolutely superb, easily evoking the look & feel of its 1990's era arcade brethren with its charming yet familiar style...making me quickly feel right at home. And I must also say that it's a very colorful game as well, sporting vibrantly rich hues and pretty bullet patterns which instantly dazzle the senses.

The artwork itself is themed from a "17th-century British Colonial Mars" motif, and it seems to work quite well, especially since it also includes a matching storyline to add a bit more distinction to this title. The story itself is wholly superfluous to be sure, because with a shmup we all know gameplay is truly the cornerstone of the experience, but I found it to be a nice touch nonetheless and there is a decent amount of skippable text which can be read by those seeking to capture the full essence of Jamestown.

As far as its music & audio go, it was superb all around...with punchy bullet & explosion sounds overlayed atop beautiful orchestral arrangments which seemed to perfectly fit in with the theme of this memorable game.

Now getting back to its gameplay here, this is a dreamy kind of bullet hell indeed in that it's very challenging yet always fair. And the wonderful part about it is that you have both primary and secondary weapons which can be alternated seamlessly throughout each level, as well as a tertiary "Vaunt Meter" which is a time-limited power-up/shield combo whereby you first have to collect gold from destroyed enemies to recharge before using again (you simply move toward the falling gold and it scoops up automatically within your proximity).

And if that wasn't enough, what truly impressed me most about it by far, is the ability to play both online and local co-op with up to four players. This adds a very interesting dynamic to the game since the way it is uniquely implemented consists of only one player needing to survive the level in order for the entire team to succeed, whereby everyone respawns once more to continue off playing the next successive one. And I must confess that with so many bullets flying in Jamestown, having the ability to lean on your team-mates in this way is a definite plus. Because death can come surprisingly fast and unexpectedly when playing on any of the several difficulties higher than normal - just massage one single bullet the wrong way and you're a goner to be sure! Which in the end makes it all the more addictive and challenging, undoubtedly infusing a lot more replay value into it.

But nonetheless I do have to admit that I was somewhat disappointed by how few levels there were to enjoy (only 5). It's just so much exhilarating fun to experience, that I very soon wanted more Jamestown to play...perhaps twice as much. In fact easily twice as much. And while there is a DLC available which adds in more ships, I somehow felt that the base game just wasn't quite meaty enough for my taste...but then again at its price-point I suppose this can be somewhat understandable...but still...I did decidedly expect a decent amount more content in this regard.

Verdict

Having said that, you will be absolutely spoiled in no time after playing this gem...make no mistake about it. It hits all the high notes with ease as far as its frenetically fun gameplay & presentation goes. And it certainly plays very well with no discernable issues noticed. I suppose I will have no choice now but to pick up the DLC for it, because while immersing myself within this one, it felt just like I was being transported back inside the 1990's arcades...with those unforgettable chains of explosive delight ricocheting between my ears...and eventually soon finding their way to a soft spot inside my heart.

This shoot'em'up masterpiece receives a 4.5 out of 5 stars from me.

Pros:

- Exceptionally satisfying gameplay with responsive controls
- Includes a somewhat interesting and novel story
- Co-op and local co-op (up to 4 players)
- Remappable controls and full controller support
- Unlockable ships/weapons (along with a shop)
- Unlockable bonus levels
- Pleasing & colorful retro-styled aesthetics
- Game screen can be optionally stretched to cover the entire area of your monitor
- Steam achievements (30+)
- Online leaderboards

Cons:

- Far too few levels in the game, the most glaring drawback with it

Pretty damn awesome old school shooter that gives any of the top japaense bullet hells game more than a run for their money. If you like the genre you need to play this. Also top notch presentation, artwork and music.

A really well designed game that accomplishes what it sets out to do with aplomb.

Jamestown has one of the very best soundtracks in an indie game (and I play a lot of indie games). It would fit in a huge budget movie brilliantly, gives the game a sense of urgency and scope even though it's just a vertical shooter. Listen to it: http://finalformgames.bandcamp.com/album/jamestown-soundtrack

Then there's graphics. I'm a sucker for good pixel art and Jamestown really delivers in that department. The theme is pretty insane (American colonial wars on Mars) but again, this was a given for games made 20 years ago. I'm really happy there are still devs who writing that kind of silly but fun story nowadays.

Game mechanics are both simple and skill-rewarding. You get a Vaunt meter that fills up when you collect gold from destroyed enemies, and when it's full you can activate the special. You'll get a shield for few seconds and your weapon will turn a different color and do more damage. If you want to sustain this you'll have to keep getting more gold. Larger enemies drop bigger amounts but you can also do combos on some enemies - destroying parts of them in a specific order or hitting them in a particular moment. This adds so much depth to the gameplay.

There are only five levels in the whole game but each one is meticulously drawn and designed. The devs managed to convert this limitation in their favor. There are six difficulties to choose from and each new level cuts out the easiest one - that way you'll have to play the last level on one of the two hardest difficulties - Divine and Judgement. And believe me - this will test you. It's not as brutal as Japanese shmups but it gets intense. There are also 4 ships to choose from with different weapons and specials (the Gunner being my favorite). The DLC adds 4 more ships. Small number of levels didn't stop the devs from making a big number of shorter, bonus ones. You unlock these with coins you earn after your level evaluation. There's also a gauntlet mode where you play levels in order. Tough as nails but really satisfying.

There's local co-op and it's done brilliantly. You can fully customize the controls and play 4-person co-op with one gamepad, a mouse and a keyboard. There's even an achievement for completing a level that way. No online though, not a problem for me but some people can see it as a serious flaw.

I simply love this game. Wish more people would play it. It really reminds me of my Amiga days.

Jamestown might be the most refined game I've played in the last decade. A top down bullet hell shooter set in an alternate history timeline (largely mirroring early American history, only this time with aliens), it presents itself with an air of confidence, as if it realizes what a pedigree its of and is determined to make you see so as well.

You can try to break down what makes Jamestown so great into understandable pieces of a larger whole, but it's the combination of them all that pushes it beyond a decent reimagining of classic shmups, into a modern classic. The feel of the ships is relentlessly precise, the action ferocious and incredibly satisfying, and the presentation presenting a remarkably well realized world (despite how little exposition there is).

The more you play Jamestown, the more these elements shine, upping the ante at a breakneck pace, forcing you to improve or perish. However, it does so in a way that allows for a natural increase in skill, letting players ease into the challenge instead of pushing them into it right from the start like the games of the genre are so known for. It also creates a continuous stream of rewards for players that manage to improve past the point of entry, with more elaborate enemy designs, tougher boss fights, and some truly grueling challenge levels. And then you have the coop, the glorious coop, the only flaw of which is that it is sadly local only. Should you get a chance to play with some friends though, it's a fantastic experience that scales perfectly and adds even more replay value as you go through levels that now feel new once again.

At times the action is so intense that it's hard to even keep track of your ship, let alone take in all that Jamestown has to offer, but when you can manage to take a step back it's incredible the level of polish applied to even the smallest areas of the game. I was quite frankly taken aback when I first gave it a try, and this feeling was renewed even up to the very last boss fight, which was as epic and satisfying as I could have hoped for. If you have even the most remote fondness for bullet hell games, Jamestown is about as penultimate an entry point into the genre as you could hope for. Everyone with more than a passing enjoyment of the genre should have played it long ago, but if not, consider this a wake up call that you've been sleeping on something awesome.

Jamestown seems intent to bring back that closeness that comes with old-school arcade games. Supporting up to 4 player local co-op with any combination of mouse, keyboard, and contollers, Jamestown stands out from the crowd.

On top of the multiplayer focus, Jamestown has a unique setting and great design. The story takes place in an alternate history of the colony of Jamestown on Mars, and that's about all there is to say. The art is great, nothing too special, but the music is fantastic. The epic soundtrack fits the intensity that the game reaches at certain difficulty levels.

The pacing and progression hold Jamestown together nicely. The in game store allows you to buy new difficulty mode and bonus levels that both offer up some intense challenge. The game slowly makes you incrase the difficulty to reach new levels, which pushes you to practice and push yourself. There is also a joke mode that takes the already outlandish story and makes it even sillier.

High scores are the main incentive for replaying. The game offers up a combination of any 4 ships that have their own unique play style, and the combinations can get pretty insane on-screen. Vaunt mode can be activated after collecting a certain amount of gold and it releases giant shield that can aborsb bullets that will raise your score and save your friends. On top of this, enemies will also offer up bonus points if you hit them at a certain point or time ( I have barely figured out any of these). There are also many difficulty settings that can turn this game into a frantic bullet hell.

This game is highly recommended with some friends. Even though the local co-op only may be a turn off, this will be a great excuse to see some of your friends in person.

***The DLC offers up 3 great new ships and pilots (Guy Fawkes included), and each of them are different and fantastic.

Probably in my overall top 5 games of all time. This game is very easy to get into but extremly hard to master.

Alot of fun playing local coop as well.

Another cool bullet-hell shooter (though nowhere near Crimzon Clover level) with a unique setting, a variety of ships (with more via DLC) and interesting progression (you have to beat the previous levels on higher difficulties to progress through the game) make this a shmup that purists should check out. Oh, and it's 4-player. Haven't seen a 4-player shooter since Blast Works on the Wii.
