    First time ever playing one of these games. While a bit clunky to handle, the gorgeous art style, and little quirks make this side scrolling adventure worth a go ahead.

    A fantastic remake of a Sega classic Wonder Boy III, Dragon's trap is as beautiful as it is unique. The hand-drawn art, seamless transition from modern to retro graphics (complete with nostalgic tweaks like grid lines, old monitor effects, and retro sound), and simple yet cool story create a gorgeous and challenging game that has only gotten better with age. Even the game case art is beautiful, and to mimic the games reversible aesthetics, the cover insert is reversible; brilliant. As if that wasn't enough of a reason to purchase this title, the physical copy also comes with a high quality dragon key-chain and mini disc copy of the soundtrack (which is also fantastic.

    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.

    This is a great remake of a genesis classic. You can switch back and forth between classic and modern art styles and music too.

    It was a great game on the Sega Master System and it's even better on the Switch. I love that you can alternate the graphics between modern and 8 bit.

    This was an old SEGA Master System game that few have probably ever played. The gameplay still holds up well and the art has been modernized and looks fantastic.

    The fact that you can switch between two different styles of art in the game is a great plus. This, like many other games on the switch, relies on a simpler gameplay style that delivers fun for old school fans. Even those who may be new to this type of game should give a try.

    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.
