About

Jamestown is a modern approach to the classic top-down shooter for four players. Developers abandoned the mechanics with a number of lives players have for every walkthrough and until at least one of the party is alive, he can revive the rest. The action takes place in the 17th century: the British Empire colonized Mars. The decent story plays a secondary role, the main focus on gameplay. The game includes wild intensity, handcrafted visuals of the classic arcade and an insanely flickering screen like in Japanese bullet hell games. Developers used real Roanoke Colony and its inhabitants as a reference and animated films of Hayao Miyazaki as an inspiration. There are 4 types of ships in total, each with two attacks: the primary one and the secondary one. There are 20 additional steampunk levels available for players to complete, which even those who have never played bullet-hell will like. The soundtrack and careful work on visual styles put gamers into a trance and creates an illusion of full immersion in the world of the game.

Jamestown reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
A varied and easy to take in hand gameplay, a very neat graphic world, a very subtle scoring system with a lot of content and a great margin of progression, this is what makes the game like the experts of shoot'em up and beginners alike.

An excellent shooter with a very high difficulty level with the ability to play up to 4 players on a PC, perfect for fun with friends. The DLC is to buy absolutely with the game, a very reasonable price for a game of such good quality. It will still be blamed for a multiplayer mode that works only locally.

Jamestown is an excellent surprise delivered by final form games. The charm of Jamestown lies both in the simple mechanisms of the game, while offering some depth to the regulars of the genre shoot ' em ups. Positives:-you can play up to 4 players locally (mouse, keyboard or joystick). -Several levels of difficulty-fun and easy to take in hand-the soundtrack that accompanies the game well negative points:-no possibility to play online-only 5 levels to book for the nostalgic of the genre or those who want to Dec Open

One of the best Danmaku present on steam with Ikaruga and mushihimesama, really beautiful, colorful as a cellar game, the meatballs and patern are very successful, as well as the scoring system forcing us to play the danger by making durerle as long as possible the necessary for the shield gauge to recharge. The lifespan is in the average of the games of the genre with in addition to the challenges that extend a little fun, as well as the gauntlet mode proposing you to do all the LVL of a milking with two credits. The multiplayer mode is very well thought out with a respawn system for the affected players, when a player makes it go down there is a timer (about ten seconds) for it to re-appear, the last players standing to remain alive during the timer, under trouble to lose a credit, timer that will last longer and longer as and as the players crevent so the game is much simpler to many if you have buddies who know what to fend for, because solo there is not this system but a classic system with 2 (or three I know more) life by credits. as for the difficulty the game this plays quite easily up to the judgement mode (the game forces you to unlock the last LVL to make all levels in difficult then in judgement on the top of the judgement, the game becomes really tricky , especially as the game offers us nothing more than two credits per level which is a very good thing, too much danmaku are lax in offering unlimited credits.
