Jets 'n' Guns Reviewed

The latest review from Macworld's Game Room focuses on Jets 'n' Guns, a 2D sidescrolling shooter from Rake in the Grass. Players pilot their space fighter through a variety of colorful levels, blasting enemies and collecting items to improve their ship.

Jets ‘n’ Guns starts with a basic premise: You’re a space pilot for hire, and you’ve been retained to save the universe from the evil dictator Xoxx and his minions. Xoxx has kidnapped Professor von Hamburger, who was working on the mysterious Quantum Cannon at the time of his abduction. Planned for peaceful purposes, the Quantum Cannon can be used for evil as well—it’s up to you to liberate the professor, destroy the weapon and stop Xoxx in his tracks.

You’re presented with a space fighter that looks like a mélange of high tech space weaponry bolted to a chassis that appears to be rescued from a World War II museum. Throughout, Jets ‘n’ Guns uses an imaginative and fun style that works through a variety of different environments, from outer space to jungles to water and more. The animation and gameplay remains fluid and smooth as you play.
