The remake is a breathtaking modernization of the 1989 Sega Master System cult classic featuring masterfully hand-drawn animation and an exquisitely re-orchestrated soundtrack. Developer Lizardcube’s faithful recreation of a journey of recovery from a curse preserves the original game’s sense of adventure, even retaining support for passwords from the original game and a retro feature that allows fans to play in the game’s original graphics.

    With a new character, Wonder Girl, three difficulty settings, six playable transformations and the option to instantaneously swap between original 8-bit or modernized visuals and audio (or to mix assets from both eras), Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap is the perfect chance to discover or return to this lighthearted adventure which captivated a generation.
