Jamestown: Legend of the Lost Colony - PC review at Thunderbolt Games

 

What makes Jamestown: Legend of the Lost Colony such an exciting entry in a genre long on the decline is the way it embraces retro ideas without interrupting them with convoluted gimmicks or attempts to fix what isn't broken. Yearning for the design of...

This intense bullet-hell shooter is soaked in stylish 2D strangeness and delivers some seriously frenetic arcade action.

From the splash screen down to the final credits, it's evident that a huge amount of TLC was poured into crafting Jamestown: Legend of the Lost Colony. It's an accessible, punchy shooter with some clever mechanics at play and a surprising level of...

Stylish art and a gradual difficulty curve make Jamestown: Legend of the Lost Colony a treat for shoot-'em-up fans of all skill levels.

Smart difficulty curve ; Numerous unlockables add longevity ; Vaunt gauge is a great offensive and defensive tool ; Stylish artwork ; Supports up to four players in local co-op

No online multiplayer

All of the destruction and chaos in Jamestown is presented with great pixel art. Each stage is immaculately detailed, right down to the sashes on the red coats' jackets and tentacles on the Martian forces. And with the numerous explosions ripping...

Jamestown Tells the Sci-Fi History of the Lost Colony... on Mars!

 

Set on Mars in 1619, you and three friends unleash English fury on martians and the Spanish in this historical sci-fi shooter.

Suite of options in controls, gameplay, and extras is impressive; difficulty can introduce you to shoot-em-ups; Farce Mode is hilarious

No online multiplayer; lack of content for the casual player; a little on the easy side

Jamestown: Legend of the Lost Colony Review

 

Final Form Games delivers a distinctly Colonial take on an old genre.

Jamestown: Legend of the Lost Colony

 

Jamestown: Legend of the Lost Colony is a shoot 'em up that has a bit of an odd premise. It takes place during the 17th Century, and involves a British colonization of a new world, but the only thing is: the "world" is Mars! Despite the game's oddball...

Jamestown: Legend of the Lost Colony PC Review

 

Jamestown: Legend of the Lost Colony caught my eye when I saw the trailer on Steam; looking at its classic 16-bit pixel art style and SHMUP (Shoot 'Em Up) bullet hell gameplay, I had a gut feeling that this title would be bloody good fun.

Awesome old school shooter ; four player co-op ; hours of intense fun ; Beautiful pixel artwork

harder difficulty levels can be a complete eye f*ck ; will strain your nerves to breaking point
