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
  • Run the “Gauntlet” arcade mode, and play Jamestown like it’s 1996
  • Leverage the unique scoring system to claw your way up the online leaderboards
  • Unlock all 30+ Steam achievements... if you can!

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.

Jamestown is one of the strongest 'against-the-flow' feelings i've had against a game; here is this clearly beautifully crafted thing that for some reason i can't enjoy or appreciate. Everyone says it's great, the reviews do too--so why don't i like it?

Jamestown is, in my mind, not a schmup designed to be a schmup. The rudimentary gameplay is not interesting or challenging enough to sustain prolonged interest, the enemy types are forgettable, the stages are bland and mono-paced, and the same song plays for every level, minus the last--an unforgiveable sin, to my mind, in this genre where ZUN and so many others have set such a precedent and high standard of quality for soundtrack composition. Everyone says this soundtrack is great, and i disagree--it is orchestral, emotionaless, unintuitive, and not at all designed around the experience of FLYING A SHIP SHOOTING STUFF. At the end of the day, Jamestown feels like an experience not designed around itself--the fluff is what makes the gameplay, but the fluff is stupid (no, it's /really/ stupid), and i don't like it and you can't make me like it, and therefore the game doesn't hold much weight by itself. The 'Vaunt' system is kind of cool, but ZUN's done better in every Touhou from 8 onward, so that's not much to brag about.

Anyway. If you think there's a chance you'd enjoy a mediocre shooting experience with an impersonal movie soundtrack and terrible writing, buy Jamestown. i feel i was tricked. this review is brutally honest. i apologize for anyone's feelings that it hurts.

(My play time listed is not accurate as I played it a lot before I owned it on Steam)

I would love to give this game a good rating because it is very pretty, has a great soundtrack, and it's 'different', but I can't. Why can't I? Because I tend to play these games on one player, which is a common way to play for a lot of shmups, especially the Japanese arcade variety. After playing this game for a fairly lengthy amount of time it's painfully obvious that the ships and levels were definitely designed more around you playing as multiplayer. The whole vertizontal setup, lots of space for enemies to spawn and shoot from, is all very good if you were to move extremely quickly. But no, most of the ships in this environment feel like you're trying to pilot Grimlen from Great Mahou Daisakusen and you don't have any bombs to combat the fact you can barely move to where the enemies are.

I'd like to imagine this game is probably a lot of fun with two players or more, but from a single player perspective this game is infuriating. Keep that in mind if you're looking into getting this.

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

Jamestown, да будет вам известно, первое поселение англичан на территории современных США. Однако, здесь мы имеем дело с англичанами колонистами Марса, которые ведут неравную борьбу с агрессивными испанцами и все это происходит в 17 веке.

Jamestown это top-down shooter, верный традициям жанра, с легкими нотками новизны и обернутый в стимпанк. Довольно приятное сочетание качеств делает игру крайне привлекательной. Простота освоения и сложность прохождения дают игре ещё больше преимуществ. Мы имеем карту с несколькими уровнями, которые открываются по мере прохождения по сюжету. На выбор дают восемь кораблей (это с DLC), причем ни одно судно не имеем явных плюсов, скорее наоборот у каждого есть вопиющая неуязвимость, которой придется уделять много внимания, чтобы не умереть. Проще говоря, мощный корабль, например, сможет атаковать только ближними атаками, потому есть риск случайно быть задетым даже мелкой пулькой, а корабли с самонаводящимися пулями имеют плохую скорострельность и могут пропустить мимо себя много врагов, что чревато тем, что вам могут убить количеством. А как раз количеством врагов и всевозможных снарядов направленных в нашу сторону тут не поскупились. Для более комфортной игры есть возможность пройти с друзьями с одного компьютера аж до четырех человек сразу, но тут свои подводные камни. Чем большие игроков тем больше врагов и интенсивнее стрельба по нам. Иногда просто удивляешься, как же так получилось протиснуться между градом пуль.

Jamestown предоставляет нам несколько режимов сложности. Все они кроме двух последних проходятся без проблем, лишь иногда вызывая небольшую досаду, когда не обратил внимание на слившуюся с фоном пулю. Однако, два последних режима заставят вас как следует попотеть. Тут уже начинается хардкор, а чтобы ещё больше раззадорить себя, то можно включить режим Gauntlet — это когда всю игру от начала до конца надо пройти за один присест. Как в старые добрые времена. Отвлечься от основного сюжета нам помогут бонусные уровни, которые так же не дадут расслабиться.

Jamestown несомненно удачный инди проект, но игра не была бы так хороша, если бы не музыкальное сопровождение, выполненное просто на высоте. Тут стоит сказать спасибо Francisco Cerda, без его участия игра потеряла бы половину свой привлекательности.

Качественный shoot 'em up в антураже марсианской войны Англии и Испании.
Отличная история, рассказывающая нам о войне двух вышеназванных стран за территории и древние артефакты Марса (при этом использующая в виде основы реальные исторические события - земные, естественно), качественная картинка, отличный звук, кооператив до 4 игроков и такое же количество различных летательных аппаратов, а также гибкая система сложности - вот то, что лучше всего подойдет для описания этой игры.
Shoot 'em up/bullet hell всегда был специфичным и сложным жанром. И хотя Jamestown позволяет играть как новичкам (на сложности Normal), так и матерым игрокам этого жанра (на сложности Judgement), я рекомендую игру только любителям жанра. 7,5/10

Игра лежала у меня в библиотеке достаточно долго без внимания, что оказалось зря. Инди-флайт-симулятор с олдскульной пиксильной графикой, которая почти не режет глаза. Игра несложная, но при этом несколько хардкорная: для прохождения уровней на высокой сложности или челенджей требуется сперва набивать руку, запоминать расстановку врагов, усваивать тактику. Только после всего этого получается пройти, что безусловно роднит геймплей игры с геймплеем в старых консольных играх, протертых нами до дыр в 90-ые. Так что если хотите вспомнить старые ощущения в новой оболочке - просим.

Помимо вышесказанного в игре присутствует кооперативный режим, заключающийся в возможности играть до 4-ех игроков с одного комьютера, что опять же нам намекает про просиженные с друзьями за консолями вечера, и крайне шикарный саундтрек, который почти относит нас в сказочный, но при этом технологичный мир а-ля "Ходячий замок" Миядзаки.

Хороший скролл-шутер с видом "сверху". История про стимпанк колонию на Марсе и испанских конкистодоров, которые пытаются то ли убить всех, то ли открыть древние секреты красной планеты. На выбор есть 8 разных летательных аппаратов, которые стреляют всякими шарами, ракетами, лазерами и прочим. Игра не сложная и пройти можно за час или меньше (если не брать в расчёт бонусные уровни и состязания). Однако меня дико удивил перепад сложности на последнем уровне кампании, как будто на стадии разработки пришёл один из программистов игры и говорит "Ребята! Я вчера поиграл в Gradius, мы сделали слишком лёгкую игру, давайте хоть последний уровень запилим как надо!" :D Можно проходить вместе с другом на одном компе (мышь или клава) или даже подключить через геймпад третьего.
В целом, хотелось бы кампанию побольше, но, что есть, то есть.

Золотые годы скроллеров давно позади. Крупные компании заняты другими, более популярными и прибыльными жанрами. К счастью, на свете все еще есть инди-энтузиасты которые знают цену сочному пикселю и помнят, как классно было рассекать небеса крылом, поливать врагов огнем изо всех орудий и, сжимая зубы, проходить чудовищно сложные аркадные уровни.
На дворе 1619 год. Европейские державы яростно бьются за контроль над колониями в Новом Свете. Английский первопроходец, шпион и поэт Уолтер Райли покидает родину, спасаясь от гнева монарха, который совсем недавно ему покровительствовал. Его цель — Фронтир. Место столкновения главных мировых сил. Тот самый Новый Свет. Марс! Авторы Jamestown: Legend of the Lost Colony работают в жанре альтернативной истории, смешивая правду с вымыслом примерно в равных пропорциях. На одной чаше весов реальные исторические имена и названия (сэр Уолтер, потерянная колония Роаноке, война с Испанией), на другой — ховеркрафты, лазерное оружие и коренные марсиане, верные союзники испанцев. Результат одновременно смешит и завораживает, чего, видимо, и добивались разработчики. Jamestown — представитель жанра, который впору заносить в Красную книгу. Но этим достоинства игры не ограничиваются.
Jamestown потрясающе выглядит. Разработчики не зря уже в рекламных видео игры бахвалятся тем, что она сделана из «самых лучших пикселей ручной работы». Визуально Jamestown напоминает доработанный с учетом последних графических технологий проект для Super Nintendo. Картинка одновременно простая и обезоруживающе красивая. От ярких цветов едва не рябит в глазах, дизайн врагов (особенно марсиан) так и тянет назвать «выдающимся», а от вида некоторых боссов просто захватывает дух.
У Jamestown непривычно высокий по нынешним временам темп. В сочетании с высокой сложностью это вроде бы должно отпугивать, но на самом деле все как раз наоборот. Немного освоившись, вы моментально входите во вкус и принимаетесь лавировать между вражескими снарядами не хуже заправского воздушного аса. И конечно же, умираете. А потом еще раз и еще. Но рука тянется не к кнопке «Выход», а к «Начать заново». Вам бросают вызов, и вы принимаете его без лишних раздумий.
