Shantae: Half-Genie Hero

Shantae’s trademark moves return! Dance to transform into all-new and classic creatures, or summon magical attacks!

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is an platform game made by WayForward. 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 Review:

8.8 Total Score
Very Good

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is a stellar addition to an already extremely consistently quality franchise that will likely go down, and unsurprisingly so, as the greatest installment in the series yet. There's plenty of fresh, risque content to pique your interest. Several new, cute enemies are bound to catch your eye. It's refreshing to see fantasy mainstays like ghosts and slimes portrayed as cute, sultry ladies. All in all, adventure fans will enjoy this game if they've never tried the series before, and returning Shantae fans will be well satisfied. Shantae is securing her position among gaming greats.

Very Good
