Shantae 1/2 Genie Hero is the 4th in a platforming series that I was slow to play, but quick to love. Made by Wayforward Games - who are obviously cool... brings us back to Scuttle Town as a sleepy Shantae hears a voice warning her of coming danger. Being the hero that she is, when that danger comes around she jumps right in to save the day.

Half genie, Full fun.

This entry into the series has a new HD graphics styling that looks great while having tight controls like games of the past. This allows you to hair-whip baddies as easily as Shantae wiggles her hips. Characters you find are steeped in equal parts charm and comedy. The music is also nothing to overlook as it saturates each location into a character of its own. read more
