Shantae is good. Like, really good. And the sequel, Risky's Revenge, is also really good -- the best game on DSiWare, in fact. The original game never achieved the big sales it deserved, coming out for the Game Boy Color when the Game Boy Advance was already on the market. Thankfully, WayForward is taking steps to ensure that history doesn't repeat itself.

Today, WayForward announced that Risky's Revenge will be coming to all iOS devices in the coming weeks. Rather than being a straight port, this version has been tinkered with for a full year in order to optimize it for touch-only controls. Enemy AI has been tweaked, platforms have been widened, menus have been redone, and more. There are even achievements to shoot for this time around!

Fans who played the DSi release may not necessarily find a lot new to satisfy them, but at least now our loveable, sprightly half-genie will be able to reach an even wider audience. Who has yet to play this wonderful gem, and who is gonna jump on board with the iOS release?

Review: Shantae: Risky's Revenge

Nobody played the original Shantae. I didn't and neither did you. It was a Game Boy Color game released a year after the GBA hit retail. It had such a limited run that loose copies currently fetch well over $100. The only rea...more

Review: Hohokum

Hohokum is amazing. It can also be awful. My time with it was often as captivating as it was arduous. Hohokum is everything right and wrong with videogames. It's equally worthy of condemnation and acclaim. I adore this horrible thing.more

Review in Progress: Firefall

Firefall is a game that has seemed to get a lot of press over the past few years, often for the wrong reasons. Whether it's word of troubled staff, protests, or delays, most Firefall news isn't good news. But alas, as we...more

Review: Road Not Taken

The term "roguelike" gets way too much airtime these days. If anything has permadeath, it's instantly a roguelike. If it takes place in a dungeon -- "roguelike!" But the original Rogue's core mechanical element was its grid-b...more
