Real jolt of nostalgia playing this, but I apparently stink at it, because I can't pass the first boss on the easiest level.

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!

+ Great graphics and sound.
+ Bullet hell shmup executed well.
+ Different ships to choose from, with each one being well suited to certain levels.

- Too short.
- Little replay value.

This game is an absolute BLAST for everyone who likes a good shootemup. It has incredibly soulful graphics (every pixel here is a work of love) and just great controls. What else do you need?

Das Spiel ist so toll. So schön anzusehen.
Durch die Pixel-Grafik bekommt man das Gefühl wirklich ein Arcade Spiel zu spielen.
Die Steuerung ist tadellos flüssig, die Schüsse kann man gezielt ausweichen und der Schwierigkeitsgrad wird im Laufe des Spiels immens hoch.
Blinzeln geht nicht!

Zu den 5 normalen Levels die man mit mehreren Schwierigskeitsstufen spielen kann kommen noch Herausforderungen hinzu. Etwa 60 Sekunden unverwundet bleiben. 250.000 Punkte innerhalb von 40 Sekunden erreichen. Und der Gauntlet-Modus, der die Bullet-Hell Experten nochmal mehr abverlangt.
Zumal die Errungenschaft "Spiel Gauntlet auf Divine durch ohne einmal getroffen zu werden" nach meiner Meinung nach UNMÖGLICH ist!
Ich möchte den Typen sehen der das geschafft hat!
Postet mir dazu einen Link. Das würde mich echt interessieren.

This game sucks you in like a drug.

As usual with drugs the only complain about it is that the turn doesn't last long enough and the price is kinda high.

Get it on discount.

And don't blame me for that strange "only one more round" feeling you will get by playing this ... ;)

BTW: I think the DLC available here on Steam really is a little bit overpriced. I think it definitely should be included in the game from the start! But maybe I'm just oldfashioned ...

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.
