Let's Compare - Wonder Boy
« on: April 29, 2015, 22:05:42 PM »
Wonder Boy is a 1986 platformer video game published by Sega and developed by Escape (now known as Westone Bit Entertainment).

Originally designed for arcades, it was later ported to the SG-1000, Sega Mark III/Master System and Game Gear video game consoles by Sega, and to the ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64 and Amstrad CPC home computers by Activision. The game is also known as Super Wonder Boy for its Sega Mark III release in Japan and Revenge of Drancon for its Game Gear release in North America.

It was the first in the long-running Wonder Boy series of games and was followed up by five sequels, Wonder Boy in Monster Land, Wonder Boy III: Monster Lair, Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap, Wonder Boy in Monster World and Monster World IV. It was also the basis for the Adventure Island series.

My wife actually beats the recorded high score on Twin Galaxies for this game regularly.  We have never taped it to be submitted.  The series is extremely fun.  I like all of the sequels.  I was never really into the Adventure Island remakes, as the lead character is not as appealing to me as the original.  I also played the arcade version a lot at a local pool house in my youth.  It munched it's share of my quarters back in the day.  Now we play it on my specially constructed Sega arcade cabinet and the old lady whoops up on it quite readily!   :113:

Is there a way to play this on a PC does anyone know?

I've tried it on an emulator on Android devices which isn't great.

I suppose through emulators.  I guess you need to find which system you want to emulate on the PC.
