    The developers truly loved the original and you can tell from this game! you can change back to retro wonder boy visuals and sound...the good old oldschool difficulty is back so dont be ashamed to look up a few things because this game is a fun reminder that sega was nintendos best competition at one point! highly recommended

    This game features 2 modes 16 bit or current gen graphics that render hand drawn animation. Definitely worth having in a game collection as it is a revisit of the classic version from the previous generation of gamer. Hence the 16 bit option of WonderBoy. Challenging game for any gamer with a high level of fun.

    I bought this for the switch and I was surprised to find that it was actually a lot of fun to play! The graphics and artwork are pretty gorgeous too! It has a fun story as well. All and all, I think this game is a great find, and definitely worth picking up!

    I never played the original Wonder Boy, but this is a beautiful looking game. This is a remake done right and still holds up today. It was a fun and different game to explore. Would recommend this to anyone who enjoys old school style games.

    Good but Shows its Age

    This is a really fun game but definitely shows its age in some places. It would have been nice to quick save anywhere in game and it can feel a bit like a grind at times when you need a specific item to progress but it'sn't clear how to obtain it. At the same time that can also be enjoyable for a certain type of person and I did enjoy that the game doesn't hold your hand like most modern games do. The ability to switch between the game's original graphics and music and the modern graphics and music at any time is an awesome feature and one I would love to see done with more games. This is a game that players of the original Wonder Boy III will enjoy but it's definitely not for everyone.

    Bought this game because the game play look great. It is a little bit difficult some parts but it is fun. Plus the extra stuff that come the package is great. The manuel is beautiful and colorful. I never played the original game but I gave this one a chance and I don't regret it. It is a classic game

    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 really love nicalis games due to the goodies that you get with them and how fun their games are. Wonder Boy is a very beautiful game with a very nice soundtrack. The art style is very nice. I like the fact that you can switch between art and music styles from the original and modern Wonder Boy. The key chain, manual, and CD are also really cool. When you get a nicalis game you are honestly in for a real treat!

    A fun platformer

    A fantastic looking remake of a Sega Master System game from the 1980's, The Dragon's Trap is an action platformer that puts you in the shoes of the titular WonderBoy (or WonderGirl, if you prefer), who suffers a curse that transforms him or her into a variety of creatures, and must seek out a cure while using various animal abilities to make their way. While it has a modern coat of paint with a fantastic graphical style (you can toggle between it and the original graphics), it still retains much of the gameplay that reminds you that, yes, this IS a Master System title. Hit boxes are occasionally a bit too big, and you will often find yourself wandering around trying to find the next objective. Keep a browser page open to GameFAQS is what I'm saying. Some sort of optional hint system would have been a nice addition. The game is also relatively short, an experienced player should be able to blow through it in a matter of hours, and you can build your character up with additional upgrades to make them practically invincible by you reach the end boss. Fortunately, the game offers multiple difficulty levels to play if you find the game to be too easy. Despite a few flaws, I found myself enjoying the game, and would recommend it to anyone looking for an enjoyable action platformer.

    Wow it must have been one of the coolest/better games back in 1989! Even when I was changing the new style to the retro one for a minute or two I found myself still liking the game. The different characters and abilities were pretty fun, but the mouse-man combat style is frustrating (very short range). The game is somewhat hard in general, but it is not that bad in my opinion. The graphics are awesome and the bosses are good, but frustrating (you need to hit them on the head and it is easy to take damage if you get too close). I find the price a little high therefore I bought it when it was 25% off. I completed the game with almost everything in 7 hours, but I only completed two of ''the unknown'' sections as I did not enjoy them or understand the purpose of them. The game is not that long therefore I would suggest you to wait for a sale if you are not already convinced. The platforming aspect was a little stiff in general, but barely noticeable.
