Everything that’s good in 2D sidescrolling action.
Have you played the original Shantae? It’s only one of the most amazing (and surprisingly rare) Gameboy Color classics ever released. Now, the scantily clad belly dancing heroine and her scantily clad pirate nemesis are back – and somehow, better than ever before. Originally an episodic DSiWare title, the Director’s Cut release brings the metroidvania platforming wonder to PC, in all its beautiful glory. Adorable pixel art and beautiful animations make the title a sight to behold. But looks aren’t everything, and Shantae is the prime example. Thankfully, gameplay is top notch as well. The title has been praised for it’s incredibly tight controls, and a creative shapeshifting system that adds metroidvania-style elements into the game’s open world.
