WONDER BOY 3: THE DRAGONS TRAP
The conclusive title to Wonder Boy in Monster Land. This game follows on immediately from the
last level of Wonder Boy in Monster Land. When you defeat the final MEKA Dragon you discover
that he has the ability to bestow curses. In our case turning him into a lizard.
Your quest is then to find a fabled Salamander Cross that will restore him to human form.
Though gameplay stays true to an action platformer it is now heavy into the RPG mode of game
play. For example, your form will change from lizard man to mouse man and lion man etc who
can only do things in certain places with certain equipment which you have to buy or obtain
The game is great little adventure not too deep for those not really into the genre.
Technically the game sports probably the best Master System graphics seen easily matching
some Mega Drive games.
This game was released for the Game Gear under the title Wonder Boy: Draconís Revenge. Since
this there have been successive Wonder Boy releases for Mega Drive and Master System. This
would be an excellent Sega character to come back in a modern gameÖ
