I downloaded iOS version of Shantae:Risky's Revenge before, and then found it's not very appealing to me at the first sight.
The game was deleted after a few minutes because I needed free space.
Care to tell me more about Shantae first? Maybe I would give it a second try in future.
True, i believe Risky's Revenge wasn't the best from the series, but the ending set everything up for the next game. I reccomend getting Pirate's Curse for you're introduction to the series. But so you're not confused, look up a playthrough of Risky's Revenge, or else you won't understand half of what's going on.
Anyway, Shantae started her adventure on the Gameboy Color back in 2002. It wasn't until 2010 that we got Risky's Revenge, followed by Pirate's Curse, and the soon to be Half Genie Hero, which is coming out later this year and will wrap up the series for good (sob)
Shantae is a half genie girl who is charged with guarding the village, Scuttletown. She's a belly dancer, and can transform into different creatures by dancing. She uses her hair as a whip to fight.
Her rival is Risky Boots, a pirate set on stealing Shantae's powers.
Shantae herself is spunky, athletic, cute, funny, and always bosts about how she can do everything herself. She makes up not so great catch phrases, her most famous one being "Ret-2-Go" which often leads in people telling her to work on her lines.
I also swear this game breaks the fourth wall. The characters often talk about them being in games, and how words in the text doesn't match what's going on in game, and funny little things like that.
Here's an examplehttp://i.imgur.com/w23qv4Kh.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/yCyQxIjh.jpg
It leads to some pretty funny moments. There's this one npc that leans against walls, and if you talk to her in Pirate's Curse, she'll say "i've been leaning against this wall for two adventures now"
Anyway, anything else you wanna know? Ask away XD
