Shantae Advance: Risky Revolution is the sixth Shantae game, originally meant to the the series' second installment. Work on this platformer began shortly before the release of the first game, but the developers have only created a demo due to a lack of interest from publishers. Years later, WayForward have decided to complete the project using tools from a time long passed.


Shantae Advance: Risky Revolution is set between the first Shantae and Shantae: Risky's Revenge. The game's protagonist is Shantae, a half-genie facing the villainous Risky Boots. The evil pirate has created a device called the Tremor Engine, which lets her affect Sequin Land's topography and plunder once safe villages.


Shantae Advance: Risky Revolution is a side-scroller. The player must traverse Sequin Land, jumping on platforms, avoiding traps, obstacles, swimming and fighting enemies. Shantae's main weapon is her hair, wielded like a whip. She can also transform into six different creatures (in addition to the four forms from the first game, she also gains the forms of a crab and a mermaid), granting her new abilities.

One interesting mechanic is moving between the foreground and the background using special gates. Shantae can also use the Tremor Engine to affect the world and change its topography, unlocking new areas.
