10 best tips for playing Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap


Wonderboy: The Dragon's Trap - #13 Tasmanian Sword & Magical Sabre

I've got something a little special for you all now. The amazing guys over at DotEmu have taken all of the classic Wonderboy games from my childhood and rendered them in beautiful, hand drawn HD!

You have the option to play (or hear) the game in HD or retro at any time you want! The game is so true to the originals that you can even use your old '89 passwords!

Of course the slight downside (or upside?) to them keeping the game like the originals is that it retains the devilish difficulty that all games back in the 80's-90's had.

Suffice to say I've been colly-waddled with all of the modern games, what with save states, save points and auto-saves. I die a lot in this game.. and I mean A LOT! And when one dies in a game such as this, you go back quite a bit in progress!

Nonetheless this game is amazing and I hope you enjoy my playthrough as much as I will!

Challenge the Dragon's Trap yourself:

Boasting beautiful, hand-drawn animations and a re-orchestrated soundtrack, the cult classic returns with a unique blend of exploration, action, and adventure!

Cursed into a half-human, half-lizard monstrosity by the Meka-Dragon, you are in search for a cure! The only way you can return to human form is to find the Salamander Cross, a magical item with the power to remove curses...

So this is a series of videos i've wanted to make for a while now. I'm really happy I was able to make an episode, even if it is a little sloppy. I'm working to make my next one a little more organized and maybe even a little shorter in length. Along with maybe making a loose script to follow.
This was actually a lot of fun to make!

Tuesday Night Indie Spotlight Ep. 61 - Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap | PS4 Gameplay

Tuesday night is indie night! This week, Ben fired up developer Lizardcube's incredibly beautiful side-scrolling 2D action game, Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap.

Ben's Take: This may be the single best-looking hand-drawn video game I've ever seen in motion. Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap is a breathtakingly beautiful side-scroller. I was drawn to the game's visual stylings after watching pre-release trailers for the title, and it's even better looking when you see it in person and play it for yourself. The quality of the animation, the clean lines (highlighted by hints of pencil strokes), and colorful characters are second-to-none in modern gaming. Thankfully, the game's not all looks and no substance; there's a genuinely fun game underneath all of this exterior beauty. I'm enjoying the different creatures you inhabit (a fire-breathing dragon and a swashbuckling mouse so far), and the game is far more challenging than it initially lets on. Boss battles are a good bit of fun, and exploring the different levels for treasures and secrets give the game an air of discovery. It's also really interesting how this game, originally released in 1989, houses so many of the metroidvania genre conventions we've come to know and love, including light RPG systems, a degree of choice and non-linearity, and a progression system tied to the different creatures you unlock and gain access to. Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap was clearly a game ahead of its time when it originally released on the Master System all those years ago. I'm really enjoying my time with the game so far, and I can't wait to dive in further and see what new levels and abilities I unlock. If you've yet to check out Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap for yourself, take a look at the video below and see what it's all about!

Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap (Nintendo Switch) Review | 8-Bit Eric

This is 8-Bit Eric's Review of Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap, the remake of Wonder Boy 3, on Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch.

Originally released in 1989 for the Sega Master System by Japanese developer Westone, The Dragon's Trap was the second entry in the action-adventure series Monster World, which is a spin off of the original wonder boy. Lizardcube has remastered Wonderboy the Dragons Trap on modern consoles.

Dragon's Trap allows the player to decide between the new, updated visuals or the 8-bit sprites of the original master system game. To touch base on the story, you start on the final level of Wonder Boy in Monster Land where you must defeat the Meka Dragon where at the end of the battle you are transformed into a lizard/dragon character.

It is up to you to get back to your original form to break the dragon’s curse by defeating the Vampire Dragon and find the Salamander Cross which is the only way to remove your curse. A really new notable thing about this game is You can choose between Wonder Boy or (exclusive to the remake) Wonder Girl

After defeating each boss you're cursed into a different form, each with their own different abilities. Using these abilities to access different parts of the levels is a huge part of the gameplay.
Certain areas are gated off until you can transform into the proper animal form and many areas need to be revisited once you find the right form. Once you get to the halfway point of the game, you are able to find these transformation rooms which allow you to change forms.

This game can initially be tough, especially when you start off with just one heart. Also, the blade you use to attack is also quite short, especially if you're playing as Mouse-man. You'll need to get in very close to attack and it can be hard to not get hit. If you die you'll restart in town and all your sub weapons will be taken away, but your money and equipment will remain. The most important thing to do is upgrade your weapons and armor as often as possible so you won’t get caught slipping.

The game itself is exactly the original, I played using a walkthrough from Gamefaqs and it was on point. LizardCube also went in and re-recorded the game's soundtrack with real instruments and added a number of new sound effects. Like the visual presentation, you can switch between the original audio and the new, remastered stuff on the fly. You could even use your old Sega Master System password codes!

If you were into the original game or the Wonder Boy series in general, you’ll likely enjoy this one. if you are new to the wonder boy series, you might get some enjoyment out of this title, but be aware that the game is very short and can be completed within a few hours.

The Dragon's Trap has a lot of charm and is still fun to play today.

Wonder Boy The Dragon's Trap - All Bosses (Nintendo Switch)

Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap is a remake of the original Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap, with gameplay reverse engineered from the original Master System code, featuring brand new hand-drawn graphics and musical rearrangements.[3] Set immediately after the events of Wonder Boy in Monster Land, players control an adventurer who, upon defeating the Mecha Dragon, has become afflicted with a curse turning them into a Lizard-Man. The player must journey across the world and defeat all the other dragons in the land in order to return to their human form. As in the original game, players explore various lands, defeating enemies to earn items, such as arrows and fireballs, and money which can be used to purchase new weapons and armor. Over the course of the game, the player gains new animal forms, each with new abilities allowing for additional exploration. These include Lizard-Man, who can spit fire, Mouse-Man, who can cling onto checkerboard-patterned blocks, Piranha-Man, who can swim underwater, Lion-Man, who can perform a vertical slash attack, and Hawk-Man, who can fly through the air.

The game retains the gameplay and level design of the original game, albeit with some enhancements such as instant weapon-toggling and removing the need to acquire charm stones to purchase new equipment. The game also supports passwords from the original game. New features added to the remake include additional difficulty settings, the option to play as a female character named Wonder Girl, hidden bonus areas, and the ability to independently toggle the graphics and audio between modern and retro styles with additional options for visual filters and FM audio.This marks the first time FM audio had been available officially in a Western release of the game.

Wonder Boy The Dragons Trap Review - Nintendo Switch - Wonderboy - Viewtiful Review

If you like the look of this game you can buy it from PlayAsia.

Played using an 8bitdo SF30Pro gamepad - get yours from PlayAsia

This is the same as my previous review for the game just with audio you can actually hear, Used this to test out my new microphone.

As most modern rating systems seem to only use the highest grades, I mean how often do you see something rated lower than a 5/10? I use one which emphasizes the higher portion whilst lumping all the bad games together.

The Viewtiful Rating scale -

Rainbow V - 10/10
V = 9/10
A = 8/10
B = 7/10
C = 6/10
D = 5 and below.

This is a review of the Nintendo Switch version of Wonder Boy The Dragons Trap. aka Wonder Boy 3 The game is also available on the Playstation 4, XBox 1 and the PC.
