Jets 'n' Guns Reviewed

The Slacker's Guide has posted a review of Rake in Grass' new arcade shooter, Jets 'n' Guns. The 2D overhead action game gives players the chance to blast a host of colorful enemies while collecting items to improve their ship. The Slacker's Guide found the game to be as feature packed as a commercial title and recommended it for fans of arcade shooters.
It's easy enough to pay homage to something tried and true, but the creators made the effort to add in some realistic elements that make the game that much better. Certain limitations, such as capacity and heat load, prevent the player from advancing too quickly. Yes, it's possible to turn your ship into an all-powerful death machine by the third or fourth level, but restrictions such as weight, an insufficient cooling system and the need for higher grades of armor come into consideration. With each upgrade that can be purchased for the ship come new choices that alter necessary play styles and make the title more than a hold-down-the-fire-button-at-all-times game. The rest of the review can be found at the Mac Observer site listed below. More information about Jets 'n' Guns can be found at the Rake in Grass website.

Finally, it's the little things that make Jets'n'Guns work. Take down an approaching spaceship and a dozen astronauts in space suits may emerge from the explosion, each firing weapons at your ship. Additional details like this keep the player on their toes and make the title fun while level bosses provide both drama and an additional challenge throughout the game.
