Despre acest joc

Jamestown: Legend Of The Lost Colony is a neo-classical top-down shooter for up to 4 players, set on 17th-century British Colonial Mars. It features all the intensity, depth, and lovingly handcrafted pixels of a classic arcade shooter, with a modern twist: deeply-integrated cooperative gameplay.
Unlike most top-down shooters, which give multiple players a shared pool of lives or continues, Jamestown does something different. So long as any player survives, the team can be brought back from death. By giving every player the power to rescue their team from the jaws of destruction, Jamestown creates an exhilarating cooperative experience where everyone’s contribution truly matters. Win or lose, your team will do it together.

Key features:


  • Blast your way through historic Mars as a crack team of up to 4 friends in local co-op mode
  • Marvel and rejoice at vast expanses of lovingly handcrafted pixels
  • Escape into a fast-paced story of swashbuckling redemption
  • Epic orchestral scores composed by Francisco Cerda, unique to each level
  • Brave the hostile Martian frontier with your pick of 1619’s finest steampunk weaponry
  • Master innovative co-op mechanics paired with classical top-down shooter gameplay
  • Test your skills against 20+ rule-bending bonus levels

Fast paced bullet hell shmup. Tons of fun if you're into that thing. Boasts plenty of difficulty levels, and alternate ships and abilities to use. Coop is a blast, if you can find people to play with you. The music is fun, the game is tight and responsive, and the mechanics and point systems are well thought out. If you're a fan of the genre and still haven't played it, I recommend it.

Also the story is pretty hilarious.

Jamestown is a fast paced indie shmup that features tons to unlock and some pretty damn nice visuals.

In Jamestown you'll be able to select from a number of different ships to play as, and each one play pretty different from one another. Some will have homing missiles, others will have plasma beams, and all sorts of other special abilities. As far as mechanics is concerned it's pretty simple. You have your regular shoot button, then a special which you can charge for an alternate fire, you also have vault as a defensive skill to negate any immediate dangers and bullets, and that's about it! Shoot stuff, collect the coins, then buy stuff with the coins. It's not a hard game to get into but it is a hard one to master.

The game's pacing is great as well. Each level never over stay it's welcome, while offering varied difficulty challenges as you proceed through them. This is a good thing since you'll be going over the same levels more than once in order to unlock everything in the game. It is arguable that Jamestown recycles a lot of the same content, but the developers have introduced interesting ways to reuse older assets to further the variety the game has to offer. From arcade mode, to challenge modes, and even a gauntlet mode, and more to unlock later on.

The game's graphics and presentation is top-notch. The pixel art featured is of a high caliber, with great details and animation. The game's soundtrack compliments the game's excellent presentation and really hits home the atmosphere the game tries to get across. It's just a gorgeous looking and sounding game.

There's a lot to love about Jamestown, but it's not perfect. The biggest issue I drew from the game is it's white enemy bullets. Of all the colors in the color wheel, why on earth did the developers choose white as the color of what's arguably the most important element in a shmup? White blends into the background, it blends in when there are explosions, it blends in where the screen shake. White is just not the color the eye picks up on first. When you're talking about shmups, visual clarity is of the utmost importance. Shmup players don't watch their spirits or the bullets individually, they "feel" them like a 6th scent. Usually in other shmups enemy bullets are as clear as day, allowing the player to ultaize their peripheral vision to "feel" their way around the battlefield. Because the bullets are white, a dull, uncaptivating color, the player is forced to watch every single bullet while keeping a close eye on the character sprite, forcing the player to play with a focus on parts of the game that shouldn't be focused on. The focus should be on the on coming dangers, not the immediate danger. The white bullets is my only real complaint about Jamestown, but it is a major one considering the genre.

Overall Jamestown is an excellent shmup. It feels great, it has a great degree of variety, and the ships are very interestingly designed. It does suffer from visual clarity problems due to it's white enemy bullets, but if you can adjust, I have no doubt Jamestown will be a memorable experience.

Pros:
- Fantastic pixel art
- Fantastic Soundtrack
- Great diversity in ships
- Lots to unlock
- Many different ways to play

Cons:
- White enemy bullets... for a shmup... seriously what the hell were the devs thinking?
(Only one con, but this one is a biggie)

It's a great bullet-hell shooter game. It features only five levels, but it also has lots of challenges and a great soundtrack. Worth its price.

Having owned this title a fair few years and spent a small number of hours playing i can honestly say its one of Steams best bullet hell shooters on the market. With its Simple yet functional menus, new players who own an XIN input controller/Xbox One controller can navigate them via an on screen cursor.

James Town features a small yet lengthy number of levels with various challenging difficulties that not only increase the tension but often require repetition to master each of the levels enemy types and end bosses. The action is easy to pick up and hard to master, knowing when to use defensive/offensive special abilities adds another layer of depth to the experience not always utilized across the genre.

An ingame currency keeps the experience on a positive path, players are rewarded for higher difficulty mission completions, in-game cash is used to purchase new missions, some on previous levels with special modifiers or objectives adding to the replayability factor.

The downloadable add-on offered for this game features a small subset of extra weaponry but i would argue that it is purely optional as most players will find progression through the game using the stock offerings is more than sufficient, the games soundtrack is also enjoyable with epic boss battle music.
Graphics are easy on the eyes with cool explosion effects and well detailed backgrounds. Weapon animations are also a major highlight here also.

A fantastic shooter with great artwork and pixel graphics, an overall satisfying package. 10/10
