Shantae and the Pirate's Curse

released on Oct 22, 2014

Embark on a brand new adventure with Shantae, the hair-whipping belly dancing genie. When she loses her magic, Shantae must team up with her nemesis, the nefarious pirate Risky Boots in order to save Sequin Land from an evil curse. As a pirate, Shantae gains new weapons to advance her quest, slay monsters, battle epic bosses…and hopefully get her magic back in the bargain! But can she really trust her deadliest enemy?

The third Shantae game is the biggest yet! Beyond Sequin Land lie cursed islands and labyrinths each hiding a new piece of Pirate Gear - Flintlock Pistol, Pirate Hat, Scimitar, Risky's Boots, and even a Cannon. Upgrade Shantae's hair and weapons or unlock advanced Fighter's Moves. Locate maps, return lost Heart Squids, collect rare loot, and laugh out loud at the weird, wild, and wonderfully humorous cast of characters. Incredible stereoscopic visuals, unlockable Pirate-Mode, multiple endings, and an unforgettable soundtrack make this one game you won't want to miss!

Joguinho metroidvania gostosinho e carismático. A arte é muito bem feita, tanto os sprites quanto as tradicionais. A trilha sonora é dançante e muito boa, combina com o jogo. Os personagens são charmosos e carismáticos.
A gameplay no começo é bem simples, mas conforme você vai desbloqueando equipamentos novos ao decorrer do jogo que te dão habilidades novas, o jogo começa a fluir bem mais, e fica beeem agradável de se jogar. É divertido combinar as habilidades de formas diferentes pra passar de alguma fase e explorar se torna bem divertido.
É uma experiência curtinha, mas com bastante qualidade, e bem divertida.

Definitely the most fulfilling Shantae Experience you can het.

Going to this from Half Genie Hero was a good idea. I enjoyed Pirate's Curse more than I thought I would! The pirate mechanics felt very natural in place of dancing and Shantae's moveset felt very fluid and intuitive. Each new item felt like an extension of her abilities instead of a lock-and-key like the dances could be. That and I didnt have to stand still to transform. There still was a lot of backtracking and guide following for some tricky fetchquests but it wasnt as tedious this time around, either because of my expectations going in from the previous game or because there is genuinely less stuff to collect. I may be done with the game but Jake Kaufman's OST is so hot that I'll be listening to it for a long time! If you're thinking of picking this up, IMO it shouldnt be your first shantae. I feel like I appreciated the game's pirate mechanics a lot more after coming from the traditional dance mechanics. That isn't to say you shouldn't play Pirate's curse, I'd reccomend it to any platformer fan or as a light metroidvania.
Almost forgot to mention that the bosses were actually bosses this time and not puzzles, I liked that a lot :)

É um jogo realmente muito legal, porém ele sofre demais com umas coisas de jogo antigo mesmo. Umas decisões idiotas. E eu acho horrível a sexualização de todas as mulheres desse jogo. Mas ele é divertido demais de jogar, vale a pena
