Developer: Final Form Games

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.

'Jamestown+' brings about the rebirth of the aging shoot-em-up genre by paying respect to its 16-bit heyday while throwing in a healthy dose of modern gaming flair.

Final Form Games throws history out the window to create an action-packed shoot-em-up where 17th century colonists fight over Mars. This is a great looking game that will remind players of the genre's heyday in the 1990s. And with dozens of items to unlock and a wide variety of weapons to shoot, Jamestown+ will keep shoot-em-up fans happy for many hours to come.

Jamestown+ has a great foundation in that it's an extremely addictive and equally challenging shmup, whether you're playing alone or with friends. The inclusion of a store and some forced backtracking does take away from the experience, but at the end of the day, blowing stuff up is just so satisfying. Those who are able to get past its occasionally tedious attitude will find bullet hell bliss.

All of this is wrapped up in a package that unites everything into that classic arcade experience the developers were aiming for when making Jamestown Plus. The amount of credits you have flashing at the bottom of the screen, your score rising above the millions, you and your friends dashing across the screen, and so many other little elements help make Jamestown Plus the game arcade-goers dreamed of back in the 90s.
