Great fun! Couldn't Stop Playing!

I really enjoyed playing Shantae. I couldn't put it down, and have been staying awake late at night the past few days until I finished it. I plan on playing the first game which came out for the Game Boy Color on the 3DS virtual console. I also look forward to the 3rd game, Shantae and the Pirate's Curse, for the 3DS and Shantae Half Genie Hero that's expected to be released in October for major consoles like XBOX 360, XBOX One, WiiU, PS3, PS4 and PSVita. It's a Kickstarter project which has been fully funded, but they're accepting Paypal donations on the Shantae Half Genie Hero website to help meet their stretch goals.

Love Shantae!

Love all the features! Especially the belly dance. I played it on my Game Boy Color, 3DS, and maybe on the Wii U. I played the first one, Shantae Risky's Revenge, and Pirate Curse. Can't wait for Half-Genie Hero expected to come out in October which is right now this month, maybe. It's on Kickstarter, so you can start donating money to help the game. It should be on the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS4, PS3, 3DS, and the Wii U, maybe. I don't know yet. But nonetheless and the moral of this review, I love Shantae and it deserves the hype it's getting. Keep it up, WayForward!

This is how you remake a game for iOS

Now I only played the free part for I already finished the game on my Wii U but this is the way to remake a game for iOS. Instead of just porting the game and adding a basic on screen controller they went through the trouble of remaking the hud and on screen controller to make it a better experience on iOS. This game is very good and I definitely recommend it.
