Jamestown: Legend of the Lost Colony is a neo-classical top-down shooter for up to 4 players, set on 17th-century British Colonial Mars. It features all the intensity, depth, and lovingly handcrafted pixels of a classic arcade shooter, with a modern twist: deeply-integrated cooperative gameplay. Unlike most top-down shooters, which give multiple players a shared pool of lives or continues, Jamestown does something different. So long as any player survives, the team can be brought back from death. By giving every player the power to rescue their team from the jaws of destruction, Jamestown creates an exhilarating cooperative experience where everyone’s contribution truly matters. Win or lose, your team will do it together.
One of my favorites. While the lack of multiplayer other than local is a bummer, the rest of the game more than makes up for it. I'm not usually a fan of bullet-hell-style shooters, but Jamestown is the perfect difficulty. The awesome music and different ships for various playstyles help make this one stellar game.
Challenging, good music, decent story. Unique idea too, when you think about it. We have all seen historical scifi, but not like this. Usually its we have the techonology of the time period vs advanced aliens, where as this is in the future but in the past. OOOOOOoooooOOOooo..... Enjoy :D
