About Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap

About this game

Experience the return of a Master System cult classic with a unique blend of exploration, action, and adventure in Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap.

With this Steam PC key, you'll venture into a fantasy world boasting beautiful, hand-drawn animations and a re-orchestrated soundtrack, as well as improved features to coincide with the popular retro-esque gameplay. 

WILL YOU LIFT THE CURSE?
Cursed into a half-human, half-lizard monstrosity by the Meka-Dragon, you are in search for a cure! The only way you can return to human form is to find the Salamander Cross, a magical item with the power to remove curses...

With each dragon slain, the curse intensifies, transforming you into different animals! Explore large, interconnected locations populated with grumpy monsters and exotic dragons!

Play as the game’s classic character, Hu-Man, or as his brand-new, long-awaited co-star Hu-Girl. You can also inhabit Lizard-Man, Mouse-Man, Piranha-Man, Lion-Man, and Hawk-Man, and use their unique abilities to uncover the land’s deepest secrets.

EASY TO HARD, RETRO TO MODERN
Enjoy three difficulty levels catering to players of all types, and switch from modern graphics and sound to 8-bit graphics/audio at any time - even during gameplay!

YOUR OFFICIAL WONDER BOY: THE DRAGON'S TRAP STEAM PC KEY GIVES YOU:

  • Sensational hand-drawn graphics.
  • Updated, but still retro, gameplay.
  • A wonderful trip down memory lane.
  • A Master System classic remade for modern gaming.

"The Dragon's Trap's HD sheen belies the simplistic gameplay of its era, but there's undeniable charm in that simplicity."

"One of the best retro remakes there's ever been, and although the gameplay sometimes shows its age the graphics are amongst the best of the year."

Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap Review

Sam Jones
Staff Review
A total overhaul of the awesome Master System platformer, Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap is as fun as it is stunning, and is brought into the present day with lush hand-drawn graphics. Or, if you want to experience the game of yesteryear, switch to 8-bit graphics mid-way through the game.
