Embark on a brand new adventure with Shantae, the hair-whipping belly dancing genie. When she loses her magic, Shantae must team up with her nemesis, the nefarious pirate Risky Boots in order to save Sequin Land from an evil curse. As a pirate, Shantae gains new weapons to advance her quest, slay monsters, battle epic bosses…and hopefully get her magic back in the bargain! But can she really trust her deadliest enemy?

Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse tells an old story wrapped in humor with a cast of character’s you may genuinely feel emotion for. Developer WayForward keeps the combat simple, instead focusing on a variety of ways to tackle encounters and increasingly difficult odds to succeed. I appreciated the old art style, even if it got in the way of platforming at times, and the soundtrack kept me focused in and out of boss battles.

Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse is a gem of a game that deserves to get more attention on its second time around. Those that have nostalgia for platformers from the 16-bit era owe it to themselves to check out this quirky experience. There is a lot to love about the half-genie, and certainly not enough of these types of games currently available on home consoles.

Sammanfattat är Shantae and the Pirate's Curse ett riktigt roligt men tufft plattformsäventyr med mycket innehåll och många hemligheter. Det är lättare att uppskatta för de med nog tålamod och lättare att förstå om man spelat de tidigare titlarna. Är du ett fan av gamla titlar som Castlevania och Metroid är det definitivt värt att kolla upp.
