Shantae 5 is a two-dimensional platform game, which is the next installment in the popular series, started by Shantae, released in 2002 on the Game Boy Color console. The game was developed by the WayForward Technologies studio responsible for all previous installments in the series, as well as games such as DuckTales Remastered, A Boy and His Blob, and The Mummy Demastered.

Mechanics

The game was built on the foundations of the previous installments. Shantae 5 is a classic two-dimensional platform game in which players explore maps, avoid traps and threats, collect items, and fight enemies with a whip.

Shantae 5 represents metroidvania subgenre. This means that the maps have a largely open structure. During the game, the heroine collects experience points that allow her to unlock new dances to transform into new forms of the beast. Each of them has unique abilities that allow players to reach map sections that were previously unavailable.

Game modes

Shantae 5 offers a single player mode only.

Technical aspects

In terms of visuals, Shantae 5 follows the formula of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero. The character models are two-dimensional, while the locations are mostly three-dimensional, but they are made in a cartoon-like style, so that all elements blend well with each other.
