    Wonderboy Review

    I didn’t know what to expect from this one as I never played the original. I was pleasantly surprised. This was a very fun retro inspired platformer. It reminds of platformers from back in the day — when they were hard! Cute story and amazing graphics. Get the physical version for all the extra goodies.

    I have never played any of the Wonderboy games before, but I absolutely loved this one. If you are a fan of any other wonderboy, I would have to assume that you would like this also. I really enjoy the Shantae games, and this reminds me of those, so perhaps that is why I am so fond of it.You should try it!

    I enjoyed this update to a classic game that I played from my childhood. It's not the greatest game of all time, but I've been a fan since I was a kid and this payed heavy respect to the original. Definitely recommend.

    This game has a true retro feel with the option of switching back and forth between updated graphics and the original eight-bit sprite graphics. The gameplay is solid, challenging, and rewarding. The items included with this physical release, including the classic styled manual, were great additions.

    Fun Old School Platformer

    This is a game from the 16-bit era that's been recreated for modern systems. The hand drawn art looks really beautiful, and there's even a classic edition if you want to play the original. However, at the end of the day it is just a 16-bit game, so it's a little lacking compared to some modern games.

    Fantastic faithful remake/sidemake. The game has gorgeous new art, while still preserving the old sprites that you can freely change between. One of the few if not only cross platform games that span over multiple decades, as the password system works between this and the master drive version.

    A wonderful graphical update of a classic Sega Master System title without any changes to the core gameplay. With a live Musical arrangement, smooth hand drawn graphics and environments this is a retro update done right.

    If you were a fan of the original, then definitely pick this up. Even if you have never played it way back in the day, it is still a fun game. A couple of the puzzles of where to go next can be a little obtuse at times, but I was able to figure it out eventually.

    I never played the original version of this old-school game, but this remake by Lizardcube is truly delightful. The art style is a joy along with the redone soundtrack. Though short, I loved every minute of it. Super-solid platforming adventure.

    Great game. I had the original when I was a kid and this remake does it remarkable justice. Whether you're new to the wonder boy series or replaying for nostalgia-sake this is a beautifully done reimagining of a classic game.

    Great game for the Switch. Multiple animals you can turn into like in Shantae. Lots of hidden areas to discover. Game is not super long but has some challenging areas. Boss fights are great just the right difficulty. Music is amazing. Highly recommend it.

    Wonder Boy The Dragon's Trap is a remaster of the classic Sega Master Title game. Animations and graphics are beautiful, as is the revamped musical score. The platforming feels just like it did many years ago.

    This is a great 2D Platformer, I can't stop playing it I'm more than halfway done, but getting to play as many different characters with different weapon attributes keeps your attention and makes you strive to keep getting more upgrades.

    A neat little platformer that, though a little dated now, was innovative for it's time. The ability to switch between modern and retro visuals is fun, and the art style is appealing. Definitely a worthy purchase for retro game lovers

    Wonder Boy and the Dragon's Trap is a remake of a Master System game. Amazingly, the game allows you to play with old and new graphics, and the gameplay still holds up. Highly recommended.
