I spent an hour and a half tackling a single platforming sequence in Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom. Not an entire level or area. Just a short series of perilous jumps that I couldn’t quite get my head around. I loved every teeth-gritting, cursing-under-my-breath moment.


If I were to pick one word to sum up the Wonder Boy series, also known as Monster World, it would be ‘charming’. A classic Sega franchise of the Master System and Mega Drive era, its chibi characters, bold colours, tight controls and catchy tunes were all beloved. Then, it just kind of ... stopped.
