About this game

Content Rating: Teen


Shantae is roused from a deep sleep, suddenly alert. She plunges into the moonlit forest in search of answers. In nearby Scuttle Town she discovers a mysterious trapdoor, and beyond that, a luminous subterranean cavern. A familiar voice calls out, drawing Shantae to a beautiful fountain. Touching its waters she is immediately spirited away to the fabled Genie Realm. At her feet a magical seal swells as some powerful evil seeks escape. The chamber trembles with a deep, bellowing roar and everything goes white. Shantae sits upright, back in her bed. Was it just a dream? Or a vision of things to come?

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero doesn't benefit from having checkpoints that must be repeated dozens of times, or thousands of shiny objects to collect. Everything has a purpose, and nothing wears out its welcome. All in all, this is a can't-miss title of the holiday season.

Con un diseño de niveles muy logrado, una fantástica ambientación, cantidad de cosas por hacer y mucha simpatía, esta curiosa genio nos ha cautivado nuevamente. Puede que no sorprenda tanto como antaño y que nos haya parecido un título más corto de lo esperado, pero a pesar de eso se trata de un juego de muchísima entidad dentro de su categoría.

Notre danseuse du ventre perd cependant un peu de son charme rétro à travers l'aspect plus cartoon de ses traits, une modernisation qui se traduit aussi dans la structure ouvertement épisodique de l'aventure. Inspirée par la mode, en particulier du financement participatif, l'égérie de WayForward s'affine à la taille, sans pour autant délaisser l'exploration.
