Informazioni sul gioco

Jamestown: Legend Of The Lost Colony è uno sparatutto neoclassico con visuale dall'alto per 4 giocatori, ambientato nelle Colonie Marziane Britanniche del 17° secolo. 'Jamestown' veicola tutta l'intensità, la profondità e i pixel amorevolmente cesellati a mano degli shooter arcade classici, arricchendo però la formula tradizionale con un'aggiunta moderna: un gameplay cooperativo profondamente integrato nella struttura del gioco.

Rispetto alla maggior parte degli sparatutto top-down, che forniscono ai giocatori una manciata di vite e continue, 'Jamestown' offre qualcosa di diverso. Fintantoché un giocatore sopravvive, la squadra può essere riportata in vita. Concedendo ad ogni giocatore l'abilità di salvare la propria squadra dall'annientamento, 'Jamestown' instaura un'esperienza cooperativa esilarante, dove il contributo di ciascuno conta veramente. Sia se vince, sia se perde, la tua squadra lo farà insieme.

Caratteristiche Principali:

  • Apriti la strada a colpi di arma da fuoco attraverso il pianeta Marte del Seicento, per mezzo di una squadra composta da fino a 4 giocatori in modalità cooperativa locale.
  • Goditi e meravìgliati di fronte agli sconfinati paesaggi in pixel-art amorevolmente cesellati a mano.
  • Aiuta un avventuriere a fuggire e a trovare riscatto attraverso una trama frenetica.
  • Epiche composizioni orchestrali firmate da Francisco Cerda: una diversa per ciascun livello.
  • Sfida con coraggio le frontiere marziane nemiche grazie alla selezione eccellente del migliore armamentario steampunk del 1619.
  • Padroneggia le innovative meccaniche co-op che ripropongono i fasti degli shooter top-down dell'era d'oro.
  • Metti alla prova le tue abilità negli oltre 20 livelli bonus, ciascuno fondato su una particolare regola.
  • Percorri tutta d'un fiato la modalità arcade "Gauntlet", e gioca Jamestown come se fosse il 1996.
  • Domina il peculiare sistema di punteggio al fine di scalare le leaderboard online.
  • Sblocca gli oltre 30 Achievement Steam... se ci riesci!

Jamestown is an extremely solid shmup, with one really fantastic advantage over other shmups.

As a single player game, it doesn't match the classics it takes inspiration from. The bullet patterns and level designs are solid but also a bit bland and lacking in strategic variety. It's good, but not great.

Where it really shines is multiplayer, as unlike the tacked on co op of your average Cave game, Jamestown's mechanics and gameplay were finely balanced around co op from the start. It's probably the best co op shmup ever made, and that's definitely something to brag about.

It also has one of the best and most creative settings and aesthetics for a shmup outside of a Cave game. The theme, music, pixel art, and setting are excellent.

If you don't have anyone to play with (local multiplayer only), than Jamestown is a decent shmup that should probably be somewhere in the middle of your wishlist compared to some of the other excellent PC shmups out there. However, if you have some friends to play with, it's an absolute must buy.

Jamestown is a vertically scrolling shoot'em up which supports up to four players locally. The game has four ships each with its own unique attack style. The levels are played asynchronously. In addition to the storyline there are a number of challenge modes which can be completed.

In 1619 Raleigh has escaped execution at the hands of his own king. Desiring to clear his name Raleigh flees the Tower of London and heads to the new world, Mars. Mars is currently being fought over between the English and the Spanish armada. Unfortunately for Raleigh the Martians are loyal to the Spanish and have sided with them. Resting his hopes for clearing his name on solving the mystery of the vanished settlement at Roanoake, Raleigh heads to the Jamestown colony in search of John Smith.

Jamestown is the first alternate history/sci-fi shooter I have ever played and indeed it may be the only one that exists. Storyline is not something I have payed mind to in other shoot'em ups, but it is very present in Jamestown. Before and after every level you get a story update. Happily these can be easily be skipped and even turned off entirely. I don't mind the story, but it's not why I'm playing a shoot'em up.

Jamestown has everything you would expect in a shooter. Destructible enemies to kill, indestructible objects to avoid, bonus items to grab. But the details differentiate it. Before each stage you select a type of ship. At the beginning your options will be limited but as you play the other ships will unlock. You can plays with the Beam, Gunner, Charge or Bomber. Beam and Charge are both listed as standard while Gunner and Bomber are listed as advanced. And I certainly agree with the assessment. The two advanced ships are much more difficult to use effectively.

Each ship has two attack modes. The Beam gives you a wide radius of fire and is the only ship to natively firing range outside of what is directly in front of you. The special weapon here is a high-powered constant beam which fires directly in front of you and rapidly damages opposing ships. The drawback is that your ship moves quite slowly while firing this special attack. The other standard ship is the Charge. The basic weapon is has a smaller firing dispersal and fires fewer bullets than the Beam's basic weapon. The Charge special shot fires a slow moving ball that damages any enemy in its path. It doesn't stop when it contacts an enemy, but rather continues on damaging anything in the path. It slowly charges over time, so that if you wait to use it the ball will be larger and more destructive.

The first advanced ship you will unlock is the Gunner. This ship has a basic weapon very similar to the Charge ship and is unique in that the special weapon is always active. Using the special weapon allows you to change the direction in which the special weapon fires. Thus if you press left while using the special weapon it will fire left. When you let up on the special weapon the direction of fire will lock in place until you use it again. This weapon certainly takes some getting used to, but it is the only weapon that allows you to fire to the left, right or towards the rear of your ship. The Bomber has the weakest basic weapon, a single stream of bullets. But the using the special causes the bullets to explode doing tremendous damage.

When you destroy an enemy, it explodes into a field of golden gears and cogs. Collecting these not only increases your score but also moves increases the Vaunt
meter. Once activated Vaunt has several effects. For a short time it provides a shield around your ship. For a longer but still limited time you will double your score. Collecting gears and cogs during the Vaunt will increase the time your score increases. Vaunt also increases the damage your ships weaponry does to enemy units. The final feature of Vaunt mode is that if you press vaunt again while it is active you will get a shorter lasting shield, but Vaunt mode immediately ends if you utilize this.

Jamestown ostensibly has five difficulty levels ranging from Normal to Judgement. But make no mistake the first two: Normal and Difficult do not allow you to play the full game. If you play on Normal you can only access the first three levels of the game. You will then be forced to play the earlier levels on a higher difficulty to continue the main story mode. If you should choose to use the Difficult setting you can access the fourth but not the fifth level of the game. This was frustrating to me as a player. I recommend using Legendary (or higher) difficulty from the beginning.

Jamestown offers a number of additional gameplay options beyond the main story mode. There is the Gauntlet mode where you play through all the levels consecutively. You are given three lives per credit and three credits. The credits do not reset during gameplay. Gauntlet is unique in Jamestown in that it is the only mode where your accomplishments in one level have any bearing on the next.

There are also a number of Bonus Levels that can be unlocked. These must be unlocked to access them through a mixture of spending ducats and doing well on the challenges which you already have access to. Most of the conditions for completing the bonus levels are earning certain number of points and activating rings by flying over them, in others you simply have to survive a set amount of time.

Jamestown offers four player simultaneous play. However it is local only. The ships are clearly designed to work well together so that one player can ameliorate the weaknesses of the ship of another, or can activate a vaunt shield to protect a friend. It is unfortunate that online multiplayer was not offered.

Jamestown also offers for additional purchase a DLC pack which has more ships to choose from and bonus levels.

I really like the look of Jamestown which is a throwback to the 16 bit era with pixelization and attractive sprites. The soundtrack is also quite good. Unfortunately, as much as I wanted to like it, Jamestown never captured my interest as much as I was hoping. I think that is largely to do with the fact that the game appears to be primarily designed for multiplayer co-op. If I could play online multiplayer I have a feeling my appreciation for Jamestown would increase tremendously. The other aspect that detracts for me is that each level is its own unique challenge and that your performance in one does not carry over to the next. I tend to most enjoy shoot'em ups where you can continually upgrade your weapons until you can destroy most anything on the screen without trying too hard. And then I can get a bunch of free guys so that by the time the game is challenging enough that I die even with my tremendous fire power and start again with a basic ship I have enough lives that I can brute force my way to the finish. Can't do that in Jamestown. The only way to upgrade your destructive capability is with Vaunt and choosing a more destructive ship, and you can't get any free lives. My guess is that Jamestown is a lot more fun to play multiplayer. But I think it is unlikely that I will ever get a chance to try.

Jamestown is a bullet hell shooter, so that pretty much guaranteed that I would like it. It’s got a very unique setting; it’s set in the 16th century, on Mars! The main character is fleeing from the King of England, and is fighting against the Spanish fleet and a bunch of aliens, with steampunk jetpacks things. That’s kind of cool.

Gameplay-wise the most notable thing is that it’s a widescreen, but scrolls vertically. I’m not used to that, as it means a lot of bullets come from the sides, as opposed to games like Touhou and Dodonpachi, but it's nice that the majority of the screen isn't wasted. There’s also a pretty big variety of ships, with very different play styles. But I still stick to the Dodonpachi-style ship, cause that’s what I’m good with.

The pixel art is nice, the music is fitting, and the game difficulty is quite reasonable.

This game reminded me the old times, like R-Type, Gradius and many others great shooters. A good game. Even better because you can play with 4 friends on the same screen. Recommended.

Jamestown è un concentrato di tutto ciò che di buono e moderno è stato aggiunto nel tempo al giurassico concetto di Shoot ‘em up: Avremo il coreografico Bullehell, una eccellente componente strategica nell’utilizzo delle armi, un multiplayer veramente cooperativo e grafica in pixel art molto ispirata.
Il cuore del gioco è composto da soli 5 livelli, ma ci sono diverse navi spaziali tutte diversissime nelle meccaniche di gioco, tanto che rigiocare un livello con un altro mezzo cambierà drasticamente l’esperienza.
Il gameplay si basa sullo sparacchiamento “ignorante”, ma ai livelli di difficoltà piu alti, la componente strategica fornita dal meccanismo del Vault, che alterna un aumento della potenza di fuoco ad uno scudo, deve essere seriamente presa in considerazione.
La OST che accompagna il gioco è veramente bella e si fonde magistralmente con i singoli momenti di gioco, concitata nei combattimenti, calma nei momenti di passaggio ed epica prima di un boss.
