Wonder Boy 1 and  2 was (imo) not all that bad. But It was Wonder Boy III that made me a fan of the series.

And for those who doesn’t know it, Wonder Boy III was released way back In 1989 to SEGA´s Master System console. So what kind of game is Wonder Boy III then? Well, it´s a side-scroller/adventure/hack n slash/RPG game (one of the very best of It´s kind).

And WB III was nothing like Wonder Boy 1 and 2, though. For example, you (the player) could transform yourself into a handful of different animals (you do however start off as a human. Which then gets transformed into a dragon).

In my book, Wonder Boy III is still THE best Wonderboy title to date.

Another thing that makes Wonder Boy III different from the previous Wonder Boy games. Is the fact that WB III doesn’t have a in-game clock.

Because in Wonder Boy 2 you died if the clock ticked down to zero. But i really hated that feature. So i´m just glad that Wonder Boy III doesn’t have a in-game clock at all.

I should also mention that WB III is very addicting. Because there´s plenty of items and money to collect. There’s also quite a lot of secrets to be found.

You can also upgrade your inventory. New weapons, armors, shields, spells you name it!

But trust me, you will need It! Because the final boss are hard as hell (at least, that´s how i remember It). Oh, i almost forgot! There´s one more thing that I really love about Wonder Boy III.

And that´s the soundtrack for the game. Because it´s bloody brilliant imo. 

And in case you just happen to wonder how well Wonder Boy III works In the year 2014. Well, personally I think the game are just as good now, as It was back then (almost 26 years ago).

So If you ever get the chance to play Wonder Boy III, then just go for It!
