Shantae: Risky's Revenge
Maybe they're tweeking the graphics a little.
I'm not saying they're releasing it on Steam nor that they're not, but the game was originally made to be played on a small screen (namely, the DSi) and it might not look so good on a standard PC monitor. It might work as it is (Dark Void Zero turned out relatively okay) but even on the iPad, it looks kinda grainy.
And yes, I did beat that first boss. Losing wasn't so bad, it was having to go through all that dialog again that got to me.
