  1. I relate much to this. Shantae is a neat journey and pirates so cute. Then this impossible monster centipede level were you must jump up the tower or die! I must have tried for two hours before crying and stressing.
    Now when I move through a game and get to a hard spot I spend 15 minutes trying and if I can’t get it I call for Brighton. It usually takes him 1.5 attempts.
