Happy Star Wars Day!

Hi All,

In celebration of Star Wars day, it felt right here at JimJams towers that we should launch an update for Solar Wind. Along with the usual tweaks and peaks we've added some more content, and improved the continue function to allow the replaying of any stage previously completed.

Here's what's new.

1) Added 2 new levels.
2) Added 2 new achievements
3) Updated the Continue.
4) Added 2 new concealed turrets
5) Fixed pathfinding issue in level 2
6) Tweaks to alien behaviour across the board.

That's it for now.

May the 4th be with you.

Hi All,

We've launched a small update today which fixes a few small issues, adds some additional soundtracks to various stages, as well as some internal changes paving the way for future stages.

About This Game

JimJams games are a small, indie development team with a love for the retro games of the '80's and 90's. We only develop games that embrace that era, aiming to provide true classic styled gaming, with a massive retro feel, maybe with a slight hint of what these games would have been with a little more processing power.

We don't aim to develop AAA games, but simply to bring our passion for a time gone by to those who love truly classic themed and inspired games. If this is a genre and era that you love, then our games are for you.

Solar Wind is our take on the classic sidescrolling shoot 'em ups of the past. Fight your way through deep space, fly deep into asteriod belts, swoop low across alien moons, and weave through narrow caverns as you take the fight to a unknown enemy.

Solar Wind encompasses many elements of the classic side scrolling shoot 'em ups, blast asteroids, take on alien ships, upgrade your ship with over 30 additional weapons, armour and equipment

  • 10 challanging stages in the first EA release.

  • A new big boss at the end of every stage.

  • Over 40 different aliens and enemy weapons in first release

  • Fight challanging and varied mid stage boss ships

  • Upgrade your ship with over 50 weapons, equipment, armour and addons
