Title: Is Jets n' Guns supposed to be really hard or is it just me?
Post by: Warrior Bob on December 04, 2006, 11:58:06 pm
I poked around for a topic on this but I didn't see one, please link me if I missed it and I'll delete the thread.

So I very much enjoyed the demo of Jets n' Guns, and I decided to buy the full version recently to play and to review on the radio show (http://pressstart.thefighting.org).  Now, I'm no hardcore game player, but I usually have an okay time with games like this, yet I found that on the default difficulty it was taking me several retries to get through the first and second levels.  This struck me as much harder than I suspected, and I wondered if that was the case for everyone else.

Is this game hard or am I just no good at it?

Thanks in advance for the responses, as they'll help me review this game properly.  If you say something that makes me laugh I'll probably end up reading it on the air, fair warning :)

I found it difficult too. Took me several attempts to get through the demo levels.
That said, I've never been good at games like that, despite how much i enjoy playing them. :P

The first couple of levels, before you get the good plane, are pretty hard. Or at least, they have some irritating parts, specifically the last part of the break-in mission, where you have to escort your new ship out.

After you get the upgraded ship, however, I was actually disappointed with the difficulty. Way too easy for my tastes.

It isn't truely hard until you start on the most difficult setting from scratch so nothing carries over from beating it on the other settings.   :P

Wow, you're right - after the third level it's a lot easier.

It took me an hour each to get past the first and second levels, but after I got the hang of the third, it was okay.   After then I had enough money to buy monkey bombs and, well, that level is a lot easier than it was in the demo with the bakers :)

Also my housemate just came in asking what game it was that had such good music, and could she have the soundtrack?  I love this band.

The first levels are hard indeed. The level where you have to steal the TMIG is imo one of the hardest in the game. You can either keep trying or just retry on another difficulty (yes, I noticed that you already have beaten it, but if you get in trouble again...). Alternately you could just use cheat codes, but it's not any fun to cheat in that game.

The soundtrack is available for download for free in the Webography section of the main site. :)

Oh yeah... I pointed her straight to it.  She just came in and immediately asked for the music.  Ironically, the song she was listening to was the shopping theme, which is only available as a Vorbis file on the site, and being an iTunes user I don't play well with Vorbis.  I'll have to nab it and transcode.

Review goes up tomorrow if all goes well, thanks for your help!

Or you could just press that button to the left of "1" to bring down the console...

Review is up (http://pressstart.thefighting.org/?p=15) along with the rest of the show if you want it.  I wasn't very in depth since we were running short on time but I think I got the basic jist of it.

Thanks you guys!

Edit: Yes I pronounce it 'Mah-sheen-uh.'  Deal with it :)

Aw, How cute, Fallout. <3 I say it the same way.

And as for Jets N' Guns...
I got my ass kicked so badly on that game. It was really quite pathetic. Took me like.. a DAY to get past the first level. Not kidding. And then I got on to the second level and once again, I was pwned.
And I gave up, because I was being a cry-baby about it.

And I haven't played it since then.
Tell me, once you get past the "difficult" levels, is it really worth playing? 'Cause if it is, I'll definitely take another try at it.

It is worth playing, trust me.
Did you play on the easiest difficulty? If you didn't you might want to try that instead.
