Acerca de este juego

Jamestown: Legend Of The Lost Colony es un shooter neoclásico en perspectiva cenital para un máximo de 4 jugadores que transcurre en un Marte colonial británico del siglo XVII. Cuenta con toda la intensidad, profundidad y píxeles de un shooter arcade clásico con un toque moderno: un sistema de juego cooperativo totalmente integrado.
A diferencia de la mayoría de shooters en perspectiva cenital, los cuales ofrecen a los jugadores un montón de vidas o continues, Jamestown hace algo diferente. Siempre y cuando algún jugador sobreviva, el equipo puede ser devuelto de la muerte. Al ofrecer a cada jugador el poder para rescatar a su equipo de las garras de la destrucción, Jamestown crea una estimulante experiencia cooperativa donde la cooperación de cada uno es lo que realmente importa. Ya sea ganando o perdiendo, tu equipo lo hará unido.

Características principales:


  • Ábrete paso a través de un Marte histórico con un equipo de 4 jugadores en el modo cooperativo por red local
  • Maravíllate y regocíjate con las grandes extensiones de píxeles dibujadas a mano
  • Escapa hacia una trepidante historia de redención llena de aventuras
  • Épicos temas orquestales compuestos por Francisco Cerda, únicos en cada nivel
  • Enfréntate en la hostil frontera marciana con tu selección de armamento steampunk de 1619
  • Domina una innovadora mecánica cooperativa combinada con un shooter clásico en perspectiva cenital
  • Pon a prueba tus habilidades contra más de 20 desafiantes niveles
  • Dale un vistazo al modo arcade "Gauntlet" y juega a Jamestown como en 1996
  • Aprovéchate del sistema de puntuación único para llegar a lo más alto de las tablas de clasificación online
  • Desbloquea más de 30 logros de Steam... ¡si puedes!

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.

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

Este juego es un diamante en bruto, solo le faltaría online para ser un must have. Una historia con humor, una banda sonora tremenda, una jugabilidad sencilla y adictiva, escenarios detallados y un monton de niveles de bonus y desafios.

Es mucho más de lo que aparenta, totalmente recomendado.

Muy divertido y rejugable. El apartado artístico es muy vistoso, con una estética steampunk dibujada a mano, y la dificultad endiablada en los modos más difíciles. Para superar algunas pantallas y algunos retos se suda, y mucho. El control es simple (se maneja únicamente con el ratón) y muy fluido.

Un Shoot'em'up de naves a lo NeoGeo. Varios tipos de nave, gráficos del 95, desafios y buena rejugabilidad.

Ojalá sacaran un juego como este mucho más largo y grande, aunque sea más caro.

Gran juego que revive toda la escencia de los SHMUPS (Shoot 'em Ups) con algunos ingredientes extra, como misisones especiales, compra de naves y algo super entretenido que es el jugar de a 4 players.
