What is Jamestown about?
Set on 17th-century British colonial Mars, Jamestown+ is a neoclassical cooperative shoot-em-up for up to four players.
The betentacled warriors of Mars have allied with the powerful Spanish Conquistador, and all of England's hopes in the New World rest on the shoulders of one disgraced knight: Sir Walter Raleigh. Lush pixelart and an award-winning orchestral soundtrack immerse you in Raleigh's battle to protect Britain's last bastion: Jamestown colony.
Three years in the making, Jamestown+ is the definitive expanded and remastered edition of the critically-acclaimed debut title from Final Form Games.
Beautiful, crazy ball hell from America! As a fan of Shoot'm Ups like Dodonpachi and the Crimzon clover also available here on Steam I can only recommend this game to every fan of the genre (and all who want to become one). I hadn't thought for a long time that besides the Japanese also the Americans could program such a high-carat ball hell, but this game has taught me a better one! The Martian colony Jamestown can be experienced in a beautiful, elaborate retro pixel splendour, whose charm is reminiscent of the graphics of Metal Slug. In addition to the excellently designed opponents and their great attack patterns, it should also be emphasized that in this Shoot'm up you can not only play in pairs - as is often the case in this genre - but can also shoot down your enemies with three friends on one screen. In my opinion, this alone justifies a purchase! One of the best Shmups on Steam. Hopefully there will soon be more :-).
