    Wonder Boy....need I say more? This game series has been around for decades but it has also not had a new installment in decades! Love this physical edition, esp the sega master system cartridge.

    This is a really fun game. You can choose between a male and female lead character. You can also switch between retro and the new style, which is really neat too.

    Great Retro game from the Sega Mega drive. The new graphics are great and also the option to play with the original graphics is very neat as well.

    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.

    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 isn'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.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
