When Shantae's Uncle Mimic returns from an expedition, he presents the residents of Scuttle Town his latest find. But he's accidentally brought the wrong thing, an ancient lamp. Before he gets a chance to put it back, the lady pirate Risky Boots turns up with her minions and swipes the lamp! Shantae, eager to help, makes chase, and begins another adventure. Shantae must find three magical seals to prevent Risky Boots from unlocking the magic lamp's evil power.

Shantae: Risky's Revenge is the sequel to the Game Boy Color game, Shantae. In it, you play as the half-genie Shantae, who can use her long ponytail like a whip to attack, and later gains the abilities to transform into different creatures by performing special dances. These creatures (the monkey, elephant and mermaid) allow Shantae to explore different areas all over the world that were previously inaccessible to her normal self. Shantae can also purchase magic spells that allow her to either protect herself, or fight offensively. These items require gems (which are earned by defeating enemies), and some items also require special "magic jams" in the purchase price, which are hidden away in the overworld or dungeons.

The iOS version added an update to include the Dancer Shantae costume, which doubles magic power but causes Shantae to recieve twice as much damage.
