Shantae: Risky’s Revenge is Free for a Limited Time

Here’s some great news for you money-saving platformer fans. Developer WayForward has made Shantae: Risky’s Revenge free for a limited time. You can download this excellent action/ platformer/ Metroidvania game here. But you’d better hurry, because we don’t know how long the sale will last.

Shantae is a “half-genie” who goes on an epic quest to save her home of Sequin Land from the clutches of an evil pirate. To do that, you guide Shantae through deserts and forests, defeating enemies with each whip of her hair. As you play, you unlock new abilities that let you venture further into the game world, much like a Castlevania or Metroid game.

It’s a lot of fun, and it’s free. So download it here now.

    Probably as a promotion effort of their Kickstarter project which involves the same character ;)

    It’s one of my favorite platformers for iOS and to “Raka”, yes it is a bit of a promotion for their KickStarter. In addition to it going free it also got an update that included a new character, and in the update notes they talk about their new game they are trying to produce.
