Developers Final Form Games have created a colorful recreation of that war and named it Jamestown.  Based upon the British colony of the same name, "Jamestown: Legend of the Lost Colony" is a steampunk styled vertical shoot'em up that gives plenty of variety while offering a very tough experience that will keep fans of the franchise busy for a...

  • Excerpt: Ah, the old school. You know where you are with the old school, don’t you? The comforting feel of a rubber key; the reassuring beep of an internal speaker; the familiar aching muscles in your forearm after a furious waggling session (fnar!); the homely sight of your TV screen filled with monochrome bad guys, bullets, and other jagged pixels you can’t identify. Halcyon days indeed – especially if you’re an old codger like myself.
  • Pros: Nice graphics and music., Great setting and story., Ticks all SHMUP boxes.
  • Cons: VERY short.

  • Excerpt: 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 late-90’s Shmups, most notably those within Treasure’s fine catalogue, Jamestown is informed by a whimsical premise, matched by pure, refined gameplay.

  • Summary: Zodra ik las hoe ontwikkelaar Final Form Games in elkaar stak kon ik al niet anders doen dan enige sympathie krijgen voor het team en de game Jamestown. Met een kernteam van slechts 3 mensen hebben ze namelijk in 2 jaar een project uitgewerkt, precies zoals ze dat zelf voor ogen hadden.
  • Pros: Briljante soundtrack, Grote replaywaarde, Leuke visuele stijl
  • Cons: Co-op alleen lokaal

  • Summary: "U nìkterých her máme po jejich dohrání smutný pocit, že nìco pìkného skonèilo. Rádi se k takovým hrám vracíme a hrajeme je témìø do omrzení. Pøesnì takovou hrou je i následující titul, který se jmenuje Jamestown: Legend Of the Lost Colony. Vývojáøi z grupy Final Form zapracovali a nabízejí nám naprosto dokonalou støíleèku, která udìlá radost nejenom starším hráèùm, kterým urèitì pøipomene zlaté èasy zbìsilých arkádových øežeb, ale užijí si ji i mladší hráèi.

  • Summary: Es ist eine dieser schönen Geschichten aus dem Bereich der Independent Spiele. Drei Freunde gründen zusammen ein kleines Startup, um das zu tun, was ihnen am meisten Spaß macht: Spiele entwickeln! So geschehen bei der Gründung von Final Form Games, dem Entwickler des neuen Indie Spiels „Jamestown Legend of the Lost Colony“. Gleich mit ihrem ersten Titel räumen sie derzeit Topbewertungen en masse ab und soviel sei vorweg verraten; zu Recht!
