Summary: Parents need to know that Shantae: Risky’s Revenge is a downloadable platformer for the Nintendo DSi with noticeably suggestive themes. Many of the game’s female characters -- including the game’s hero, Shantae -- are scantily clad, showing off large bosoms that jiggle as they move.

Mais quand Shantae : Risky's Revenge apparaît dans le catalogue, on ouvre un oeil curieux pour voir ce que nous réserve le petit jouet de WayForward Technologies. Et le résultat est plutôt probant.
Summary: Wow, was für ein Spiel! Shantae: Risky's Revenge wird den Vorschusslorbeeren in vollstem Maße gerecht. Was WayForward hier auf DSiWare anstellt, lässt die gesammelte Konkurrenz vor Neid erblassen. Fantastische 2D-Grafik, punktgenaue Spielbarkeit und exzellent designte Dungeons beschwören Erinnerungen an goldene 16Bit-Zeiten, versteckte Schatztruhen und ausgedehnte Shopping-Touren motivieren Forschernaturen und die herzige Heldin und ihre knallbunte Welt laden einfach zum...
