Remember This?

Can you identify this classic game from one single screenshot? History suggests you can, since I've only managed to stump you once. If you do manage to guess this game before I get back to you, feel free to get misty-eyed and nostalgic over one of my personal favourites.

    Wonder boy 3?

      Damnit, a quick google tells me I am wrong. Wonder Boy in Monster Land.

    Looks like it could be Wonderboy in Monsterland. God I loved that game on the old commodore

    Wonder Boy in Monster Land?

      ... Make that in Monster World, on the SEGA Mega Drive.

    Wonder Boy IV in Monster World (Sega Mega Drive/Genesis)

    Ummm, it's one of the Wonder Boy's I think from the Sega Master System. Definately not 3, but maybe 4? The graphics are better than 3, so I'll my final answer is Wonder Boy 4.

    Wonder Boy!(?)

    Could it be an Alex Kidd? I never played any so I'm not sure of the titles... there must be about 107 to choose from by now?

    One of the Wonderboy games. Monster Land I think?

    SQUEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

                Malibu nights tangerine dreams.....

    Is that Wonder Boy in Monster World for the Mega Drive? I don't remember a fairy following you around, but the character looks right.

    And even if I'm wrong, didn't you end up fighting aliens at the end of that game?

      Yeah, you picked up the fairy from the queen through the gate in the town pictured. She bashed things for you and found hearts along the way.

      The aliens at the end were really crazy. Took me ages to get past the final boss and none of my friends were able to do it. I think I was lucky as I couldn't do it when I retried.

      The ending was really crap to, but the game was brilliant, so I could forgive it.

    Wonderboy in Monster World for the MegaDrive of course! I have all the Wonderboy games (except the japanese only Monster World 4) on cartridge for SMS/MD, with my personal favourite being the classic, Wonderboy 3: The Dragons Trap on SMS.

    Wonder Boy in Monster World? MegaDrive? I never played this but I did recognise Wonder Boy.

    wonderboy! possibly 3.. monster land? i always get them confused :0

    Wonder Boy in Monster World 4! I still play it on my PSP!

    Wonderboy in Monster...Land? World? Peninsula?

    For the Mega Drive.

    Wonder Boy In Monster World!

    Brain hurting..... SNES maybe
    Could get different armor like in MegaMan X, gave different powers....
    AAARRRGGGHHHHH!!!!!!

      ****facepalm****
      Had a megadrive for about 6 months back in the day, cracked this and Ecco
      How sweet would a HD Ecco be......

        A HD Ecco would be fantastic, as long as it's kept 2D. They tried 3D on the Dreamcast & PS2, and while it looked stunning, it was incredibly difficult and very hard to control.

    Yeah! WonderBoy in Monster World is one of my favourite games of all times but (fun fact)as I grew up in Brazil I know this game as Monica na terra dos monstros (Monica in Monster World).
    Monica is the most famous comic book in Brazil, and only last year that I was able to finish the real version of this game

    Wonderboy 3: The Dragon's Trap was one of my favourite games growing up.

    #4 Just didn't do it for me.

    I know I'm belated but one look at that SS and...

    Wonder boy in monster land!

    And your dude is kitted out in some epic gear there!

    +1 for everyone elses guess of WB in MW on MD. Interestng to note this shot is taken all of about 10 minutes (if that). I wanna see a picture just before th elast boss with WB all kitted out.

    Wonder Boy in Monster World, that's the town before the dungeon with the ocarina

    SHEON TAKES HEART!
