In the 8-bit and SHMUP category comes Jamestown, what some have called the best space shoot-em-up of all time. Big words. But in the multiplayer mode is where the game really shines. So let’s hear what our IGR writer had to say:
“Jamestown could be a tutorial for how to make an indie shooter. It’s that good. Two years of development have resulted in a game that is an approachable bullet-hell shooter that has something to offer for everyone, from casual gamers to 1cc pros. Jamestown’s developers have delivered a game with solid indie credentials that could easily have appeared in a neighborhood arcade fifteen years ago. And they did it without sacrificing any accessibility or enjoyability. It’s an old-school shooter with all the trappings of a modern-day triple-A title.” – from the review by Bill Whorton
With a DLC that included the now ubiquitous Guy Fawkes as one of the player characters, it is clear that the devs did not want to rest on their laurels.
