Risky's Revenge is literally the sort of game DSiWare was made for; WayForward has been shopping it around for years, but publishers have uniformly refused to take a chance on it at retail. Digital distribution let them cut publishers from the picture and just sell the game directly. The developers frustration is ultimately to our benefit: This is a beautiful, substantial, classic-style game, and it's a great deal to boot. Risky's Revenge is quite possibly the first truly decisive argument in favor of owning a DSi, and I'd love to see it succeed -- not just because the game's cliffhanger ending deserves resolution, but also because other developers clearly need a little motivation to produce work of similar quality for the platform.

Kaum zu glauben, dass Entwickler WayForward in all den Jahren keinen Publisher für diese kleine Perle gefunden hat! Den DSi-Besitzern soll es recht sein, denn sie profitieren jetzt davon: Für nur 1200 Punkte bekommen sie ein bezauberndes Action-Adventure, welches sogar viele Vollpreis-Titel alt aussehen lässt. Die verschnörkelte Fantasy-Welt ist nicht nur ein Fest für Liebhaber hübsch gezeichneter 2D-Welten, sondern bietet auch spielerisch jede Menge Abwechslung: Der Mix aus Entdeckung, Kämpfen, Sprungpassagen und dem Ausprobieren neuer Extras sorgt für einen angenehmen Spielrhythmus.

Shantae : Risky's Revenge est typiquement le genre de jeu que l'on attend sur DSiWare. En proposant un gameplay sympathique grâce à un level design toujours recherché, le titre ne déçoit pas et se veut agréable du début à la fin. Les personnages sont charismatiques et les animations ont été réalisées avec grand soin. A moins de ne pas comprendre un seul mot d'anglais, nous le conseillons vivement à toute personne en mal de titres old-school sachant faire preuve d'originalité.
