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.
This Jamestown Plus version of the hit shooter contains the entire original experience as well as a lot of cool new content to celebrate the console release. Included are new ships (replete with innovative special attacks and customizable weapon systems) and new levels (taking players on a swashbuckling adventure to the mysterious Martian moons of Phobos and Deimos.) Also features is a brand new chapter of the Jamestown story that spans space and time, adds new dimension to established characters and locations, and finishes what the original game started.
