Restore my purchase option please update

I had bought the full version and had to replace my phone so I saved to the cloud but when I downloaded my file was gone and it wants me to buy the full version all over again😒. Other than that problem I love the game and can't wait for the two new Shantae games to drop !! 😊

Never buy a app if it has a console version

When I initially began playing I was glad that it did not have any ads and only got the demo version to check out the controls and let me tell you: All versions of Risky’s Revenge make up the worst Shantae game ever. First of all the plot is a little bit too similar to the Original, the bosses took nearly forever to beat, since you tap and stuff for the controls, I have done a ton of half-jumps which lead to a few deaths. Also, Shantae hardly whips her hair, It gets confusing about where you’re supposed to go, the mermaids are portrayed as lesbians, the game is so short and then there is this side quest where you have to get the Scuttle Town deed from mayor Scuttlebutt, and the route: Polyp Bay, was nearly impossible to get through I ended up wasting 10 minutes when I could have been doing something else. Finally, at the very end of the full iOS game, when you are about to battle the final boss…The game crashes. Upon this happening two more times, my Dad payed ten dollars for the Director’s cut version on Switch, and I spent the rest of Friday and Saturday playing that when I could have been on Pirates Curse. So overall, don’t be tempted by the lesser price, be smart and get this on your console instead, and make sure to take breaks during polyp bay. Plus, as you are playing just think…WHY ON EARTH DID MATT BOZON AND WAYFORWARD DECIDE TO MAKE THIS GAME?!

This is for a different Shantae game but I still love this game!

Hey Wayforward! I previously had Shantae and the seven sirens and LOVE what you did with it, and there is actually some things I want to see! Like post-game content! True FINAL bosses and stuff! I would have loved to still have Apple Arcade to this day but my parents are going to lose money… And great spectacular superstar update! I just want to make sure I’m not the dummy and you did add some stuff like post-game content in it, Sorry I did it in a entirely different game, but I do not have Seven sirens anymore… But I’m still a HUGE fan of Shantae!
