- No Interactive Elements
This is an action-platformer in which players help Shantae, a half-genie guardian, complete quests, search for lost items, and battle pirates. As players traverse side-scrolling environments, they use Shantae's ponytail and magical powers (e.g., fireballs, animal transformations) to defeat fantastical enemies (e.g., pirates, mermaids, wizards) in combat. Enemies fall from the screen when defeated amid jewels and light effects. Some female characters are depicted in the foreground with exaggerated-size breasts/cleavage; characters' breasts also jiggle when they move. Other female creatures are depicted with exposed breasts, without discernible details (i.e., no nipples).
