The gameplay in Shantae ½ Genie Hero is quite a bit closer to a traditional platformer compared to its previous entries which were more akin to Metroid or Castlevania, though a few of those elements such as upgrades and transformations remain. As usual you attack enemies with your hair whip, and transformations which return from the very first Shantae title, allow Shantae to reach previously impossible to reach places.

The game does seem a bit shorter than a typical Shantae title, but it makes up for it with various modes that completely change the way the game plays, such as The Mighty Switch Force mode where you must utilize switch blocks to travers courses while collecting criminals and shooting enemies. You can also kill enemies by launching them into your TV screen with the switch blocks, but be careful not to do that to Shantae now. Other fantastic modes include the fast-paced Ninja mode which allows Shantae to scale walls, slash enemies to ribbons, ans use throwing weapons. Then there's the Friends Till The End and Risky Boots campaigns which shed more light into the main game's story. There are many more modes than the one's that we mentioned and best of all, they all have a unique storyline which really adds to the replayability of the game!

The controls in Shantae ½ Genie Hero are intuitive and easy to learn while the difficulty varies greatly depending on the mode you choose. The audio-visual presentation is superb as the characters and world are lush and detailed with gorgeous use of colors while the voice acting "what little there is" and the soundtrack are flawless and fit the game perfectly.

Bottom-Line:

With incredible gameplay, a ton of different modes offering an insane amount of replayability, flawless controls, and a superb audio-visual presentation Shantae ½ Genie Hero is an amazing game that is nearly perfect in every way and as such, not only do we give it a perfect score, but we're also awarding Shantae ½ Genie Hero our 2018 Indie Game of Fame Award which means that we think that it is the best indie released since August 2017!

Developed and published by WayForward Games, Shantae: Risky's Revenge: Director's Cut is a remake / remaster of the second Shantae title originally released on the Nintendo DSiWare Service. The game has been visually improved and has many new features as well, but is this enough to keep the game fresh and has the game aged well in-terms of its mechanics? Continue reading our review to find out!

Shantae: Risky's Revenge: Director's Cut is a Metroidvania-style adventure title that is extremely unique in the fact that the protagonist can transform into various animals to progress through the game's fairly sizeable world. The game itself is over 10 hours in length for first-time players and there are also a ton of secrets to be found so completing the game can take more than twice that amount of time!

Other unique features of the game include the ability to use panels to shift between the background and foreground, similarly to the Mutant Mudds games. The game can be difficult at times with some mind-bending puzzles, but for the most part its difficulty level is fair. The controls are great "especially the Wii U Pro controls", but the Wii U Gamepad works nice too. The Off-TV-Play feature is great for those who can't use their TV when playing the game!

Visually the game looks great! The multiple layered backgrounds, gorgeous and unique characters, and beautiful locations all add to the overall experience of the game and the soundtrack is amongst the best we've heard from the Shantae series!

Bottom-Line:

With fantastic and unique Metroidvania-style gameplay, great controls that are very intuitive and easy to learn, as well as an extremely amazing audio-visual presentation, Shantae: Risky's Revenge: Director's Cut is a great game that no Wii U owner should pass up! We give the game a great level of recommendation!
