1. Walkthrough overview
Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is a light Metroidvania action platformer, meaning that in order to 100% the game, we'll need to revisit older areas after getting new powers. There's honestly not too much to this game. In general we will be doing three playthroughs.
Playthrough #1: This will be our casual playthrough, taking our time and getting 100%. We'll be learning how the game works and just getting a feel for the game as we prepare ourselves for our speed run.
Playthrough #2: This run will be our speed run in which we aim for beating the game in under 3 hours with an any% completion and under 4 hours with a 100% completion.
Playthrough #3: This run will be our hardcore run of the game. By this time we should have an idea of how the game works and it should be much more manageable to beat the game since you've beaten it twice rather than just diving headfirst into this.
I would highly recommend following this walkthrough in the order it's in to get 100% as quickly as possible and to make your playthrough considerably easier as you'll be able to upgrade Shantae into a powerhouse with your early revisits.
