If you haven't already you owe it to yourself to play Shantae: Risky's Revenge

Instead of just posting it in every thread where people are asking for game recommendations I'll just post here. If you are a fan of platformers at all you should absolutely check it out on the eShop. It's one of the most expensive DSiWare titles, but well worth it.
Fun gameplay, amazing animation, cute characters. Multiple endings in the style of Metroid (different pictures for different ending times/item collection). What more can you ask for?

I can ask for it to be available in physical form, and thus worth the money.

Please do not feed the trolls, mark & move on. Likely posted from my 3DS.

I just downloaded it and played that first boss. Eaten my dinner now so I'm gonna play it again. Looks nice on the 3DS, but I do wonder how it would've looked on my XL.

Really? A tiny square of plastic determines whether or not a game is worthwhile to you?

I just downloaded it last night and have to say its a pretty good game so far. It is one of the more expensive e-shop titles but it feels and plays like something that you'd pay full retail price for. I'm just hoping right now that the game isn't too short.

What is so good about it (be more specific) and how long is it?

Ah well, I'd rather have it in my 3DS Activity Log anyway.

You can run it without scaling if you hold start + select when you start the game. It'll be small, but every bit as clear as it would be on a DSi or DSiXL. Same is true of any DS(i) game.
