“...very seldom have we encountered a game that features this level of polish and refinement in virtually every facet...there's really not a single area of the game that won't wow you...quite possibly the best (money) you'll ever spend on a video game”
10/10 – Nintendo Life

9.5/10 – Destructoid

I played this first on iOS, and I had a blast playing it. I liked it enough that I bought it on DSi and Steam.

Pros:

Funny
Cute Artwork
Excellent Metroidvania
Great Characters


Cons:
Map system, although improved for the directors cut, still isn't the best thing ever.

Pretty Short


I'd still say get it, it's really fun.

What there is to say?
Shantae is finally on PC!

The music is awesome, the gameplay is awesome, the story is awesome, the characters are better than awesome, and YOU CAN KILL STUFF WITH YOUR HAIR! AND YOU CAN DANCE TO CHANGE FORMS! WOAH!

Could use more V-sync though.

And a little bit too short. 4-6 hours, eeehhh.

It's a Brilliant game with Impressive design mechanics for it's time!
So far from what I have played it's identical to the Phone version.
But overall this game is a gem, if you enjoy oldschool platforming then this game is for you!
This is the perfect platformer, It's simply proof that the 2D side-scrolling formula still holds up after all these years. The characters are fun and quirky, the story is weird and loose, and the game as a whole is quite the pleasure to play!

Shantae: RR's controls are as simple as it's predecessor's: you can jump (A), Whip (X), Dance (Y), Use Items (start), and do a backwards dash (LB)
Dancing is also very simple, you just hold the button til the right formation, and then release.
Items can now be bought and used indefinitely, as long as you have Magic in your Meter which is simple enough, just by killing a few enemies or finding pots located all over the maps.
Which that is probably my only real negative so far, the map, it's a bit wierd I suppose but I am starting to get use to it with time so there is that.
If you enjoyed action adventure such as Metroid and Zelda series then you will positively adore this wonderous game!
Make sure to pick this game up as soon as possible, there needs to be more Shantae in the world!

A good port of one of the best Metroid style games ever.

Originally released on DSI in 2010 and hasn't lost a step since then staying entirely relevant. The pixelated graphics arew animated masterfully, controls are impeccable. Great soundtrack, and effects. The writing is even entertaining (the part where a character is lauded for having huge bowels is one of note). It's charming, polished and timeless, with a really great price point. A++

Tight controls, witty and hilarious dialogue, amazing music, overall fun and rewarding gameplay. Directors cut has a new mode where you can play primarily as a magic caster.

If you want a metroid/castlevania crossover, buy this game.
