Fun for young and old. Classic adventure story platformer with modern elements.

Excellent game that brings makes the golden days of platformers look rather less impressive by comparison as this checks almost all the right boxes and has modern HD elements while being exactly what people want from a great platformer style game. The sound tracks are quite good. Its fairly straight forward game you may never actually need to go to a youtube video or something to see how to defeat a boss or solve a puzzle if you are good at games. But in the past when games like this were common people got stuck all the time not knowing where to go or how to beat a boss as a certain item or action may be required to progress. Many games lack modern GPS like stuff and objective arrows with bullet points saying "find this" and such. The level designs are rather interesting and inspiring. characters fun and quirky. art style and graphics are pretty great and runs smooth on like almost any computer or laptop probably i'd assume.

Shantae is a classic 2D side scroller game and it is really fun. The whole environment and ideas kept for the abilities is great, the music is one of the best. One of the underrated franchise out there
