Is there a way I can configure the keybindings for the PC version of Shatter?

To edit the controller mapping you need to use the ShatterSettingsEditor. In the Steam version of the game, choose the 'edit settings' option when launching the game. In the standalone version, find ShatterSettingsEditor, either in the Start menu or under Program Files, and launch it as administrator. You'll find the Control Mapping tab appear under the Controller tab, like so:
