Another day, another update.

Hi all,

We've uploaded a small patch today that fixed a rare crash caused by changing some options.

We've also taken this opportunity to improve the alien movement on the very final stage, so the aliens now fly continuously, and weave around the mothership. Improving both the look and the challenge of the level. In addition, we've fixed another rare bug, where sometimes the final level would just loop, instead of increasing difficulty and returning to the first stage.

There's still a possibility that we'll have one more small update before Christmas, so watch this space.

Many thanks for your support.

Firebird Christmas update 2018 has landed

Hi All,

It's nearing that time, and as part of our commitment to keep improving our games, our take on the classic space invasion genre has received an update.

So, what's new?

1) 14 new weapons upgrades, giving the player more ways to kill!
2) 3 New killing spree achievements.
3) An improved, button masher style control system,
4) A new player supercharger for mass destruction.
5) 2 new stages, featuring new aliens
6) More deadly terror attacks as the enemy now deploy explosive drop pods.
7) Improvements to the ship docking stages.
8) Performance improvements.

This build also addresses a couple of small gameplay issues raised by a handful of players, small tweaks mainly, but we're here to please :).

We might have time to release another quick patch before Christmas, as we've not added everything we wanted to for this build, but we need time to update the rest of our range in time for Christmas.

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.

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

Firebird is another classically inspired arcade zap 'em up. This time we've taken our cue from the alien shooters of the late 1980's.

Firebird brings together a whole host of the features and effects we have all loved from the space invasion genre and puts them all together for some action packed, fast paced blasting chaos.


Repel an ever-adapting alien invasion force over 19 increasingly challenging, levels.

1) Fight classic style invaders
2) Dodge and weave as they learn to divebomb
3) Watch out for the alien terrorist drop troops
4) Avoid alien super bombs, which spread shrapnel across the screen
5) Dodge alien tractor beams and deathrays!
6) Over 40 different player upgrades available
7) Protect yourself with energy shields, advanced drones and ghost ships
8) Blast the enemy in all directions
9) Pick up smart bombs for instant kills
10) Come face to face with the alien mothership
