Whether you fondly remember the original 1989 Master System version or simply enjoy good platform games, Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap should not be missed. This updated version is a true labor of love and features great artwork, brilliant re-orchestrated versions of the classic tunes as well as the ability to switch to the original audio and visuals on the fly. The gameplay is also still every bit as addictive as it was back in the day and can now be taken up or down a notch depending on your skill level. It is definitely no exaggeration to say that Lizardcube has pulled off one of the most impressive remakes of a retro classic that we have seen to date.
Gameplay: Still plays great and showcases why this game is widely regarded as a classic of its time.
Graphics: The new hand-drawn visuals look great and are also beautifully animated.
Sound: The original soundtrack is catchy, but the re-orchestrated version sounds even better
