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.

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!
Please leave some feedback and spread the video, I would love to know how I can better this series! Thank you!

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.

Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom Nintendo Switch Review (One of the BEST platformers!)

Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom is a game 5 years in the making - the soundtrack alone took 2 years to make! It's definitely had a lot of effort put in but is it any good or is it a flop? Find out in our review.

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 in Monster World [GEN] One Life Clear

The RPG elements here aren't quite up to the standard set by The Dragon's Trap, but this is still a pretty nice game.

1:31 - Shion is painfully slow until you buy the leather boots. I don't like it when RPGs start you out horribly weak so you can level up to a tolerable level, but at least it only takes a minute to gather 30 gold.

3:55 - I switch out my sword for the first spear in for sale in Alsedo. Spears have better reach than swords in exchange for being unable to use a shield. I like spears much better, but the game generally wants you to be using a sword. The ocarina won't appear until you talk to the fairy who dropped it. You're supposed to bring it back to her so she can teach you the three songs, but I just wrote them down to cut out a bit of backtracking.

10:48 - It isn't necessary to talk to Princess Purapril here, but it is necessary to talk to the servant who unlocks the door to the city.

17:02 - Don't leave Lilypad without the marine boots. They are as good as if not better than the legend boots. They give you a good running speed, and the only the pygmy boots give you a better jumping height. Ignore the ratings on the stats screen, they are nonsense.

22:00 - Once you kill Gragg or Glagg, the other becomes more aggressive. It's a bit easier if you spread your damage out evenly rather than focusing on one at a time. The trident they drop has the same attack power as our knight sword, but it's a spear and it allows us to swim.

55:28 - Too bad the battle spear costs 10,000 gold. I'd buy it if it was sensibly priced. As is it's far too much grinding for something that's going to be outdated soon anyway. Excalibur's damage is still perfectly acceptable. It can be tricky to fight on the slippery terrain. Fortunately, most of the enemies in this area are weak against fire storm and quake.

1:06:07 - Pygmy Shion is this game's version of the Mouse-Man form from The Dragon's Trap. He can't climb walls but he can still fit through small gaps and he still has a horrible attack range. I make a short trip back to the pyramid before entering the volcano because pygmy Shion can get another heart and a charmstone there. It's a good idea to use lots of magic in the volcano. The enemies resist fire storm but quake and thunder work well. I like that the boss battle against the Tyrant Dragon uses the boss theme from The Dragon's Trap.

1:15:55 - There's a hidden shop in Purapril city that takes charmstones. One charmstone can be traded for a heart, two can be traded for magic spells.

1:22:36 - Switching to pygmy Shion here isn't necessary, but it's not far out of the way unless you're skipping the legend boots, and it'll get us another heart later.

1:25:31 - The marine boots let Shion jump higher than the legend boots so it's best to switch to them for the moving platform section.

1:33:12 - Biomeka is much harder in the western version of the game than he is in the original Japanese version. I find that switching to the marine boots helps a lot - the marine boots' better jump height makes the buzz saw less of an issue, and the legend boots' speed is more of a liability than a help.

22 of the Best Sega Master System Games | How To Retro

Here we look at 22 of the Best Sega Master System Games (in my opinion!). Devising a list of the Best Sega Master System Games is challenging, you will likely see many of the usual suspects here, and for good reason - They are all classic games!

These are all demonstrated using the Sega Master System core on a Mister FPGA device, which is 100% recommended for retro gaming enthusiasts who do not want to compromise on system accuracy, benefiting from 'hardware' emulation, far better controller lag times as well as the ability to seamlessly switch between systems in seconds.
