Guess who's back?
This is the third in the Shantae series of Metroid/Castlevania-style exploration games which provide a nice mix of adventure and action. This one continues in the same generally high standard as its predecessors and proves to be a worthy addition to any genre fan's collection. The story here revolves around our hero Shantae, a half-genie who has unfortunately lost her genie skills and who is now getting used to normal life. However, when her nemesis tells her there might be a chance to regain her powers and save the world at the same time, she reluctantly joins forces with her and sets out on another epic adventure. What follows is an exciting and detail-packed quest which sees you exploring a number of gloriously old-school environments in similar fashion to earlier entries, but with a few important changes. Firstly, levels are much less linear than previously, encouraging players to venture off the beaten track, while you also lack Shantae's traditional skills as she has lost them. There are still lots of cool weapons to discover though while the gameplay is still a finely honed mix of platforming and battling that proves to be endlessly entertaining. This really is a delightful little game. It's got a cracking storyline which really sucks you and is surprisingly complex for such a title, while the visuals are just lovely, with some beautiful character and environment design, notably the impressive bosses. The gameplay is a nice mix of styles, all of which are blended expertly together, making this a fine choice for any platformer fan.
