Well it seems like we are getting adventure island 2 for the nes tomorrow. Also let me give you a quick history lesson if you have played Adventure Island for the gameboy it is really that game. Also what are your thoughts?

Adventure Island Game Boy = Adventure Island II NES (well, mostly. I think the NES might have had more levels but you only played a randomized set of levels each time. GB is not randomized.)
Adventure Island II Game Boy = Adventure Island III NES
(though in Japan, Hudson left the GB version numbers the same as FC)

If this means more Adventure Island games coming I can't complain. Hopefully we can actually get Adventure Island IV here as an import title eventually.

Is the first Adventure Island a worse version than the Master System version of Wonderboy ?

I would like any of the later TG16 Wonderboy ports definitely. (Or any of the Megadrive Wonderboy games).

Or the TG16 Adventure Island games (Not bothered for the SNES one I never liked it)

@unrandomsam There are two SNES Adventure Island games. They're both completely different from each other.

I personally don't see much of a different between Adventure Island I and Wonderboy I but most seem to prefer Wonderboy from what I've seen.

I'm still waiting for Adventure Island II for the GB to come to the VC. I loved that game, and It'd be an insta-buy. :3

If playing identically but has some different graphics can be called "worse"...

Edgey, Gumshoe, Godot, Sissel, Larry, then Mia, Franziska, Maggie, Kay and Lynne.

I am bothered about whether it plays as close as possible to the Arcade game. (Rather have the Arcade game to be honest).

Adventure Island 1 GB is based on Adventure Island 2 NES and Adventure Island 2 GB is based on Adventure Island 3 NES.

I never played Adventure Island but I was a massive fan of Wonder Boy after the first one, the first one was a pretty unimpressive platformer to be honest. Is Adventure Island 2 more like the later Wonder Boy games for is it very similar to the earlier ones?

On a side note, how has Wonder Boy not been rebooted? That series was awesome! I'm really tempted to download the collection on PS3 or Xbox.

Adventure Island 2 is like the first Wonder Boy, but with more sane difficulty (get from start to goal before you die of hunger if not something else). AI2 adds the ability to ride dinosaurs. Also, when you finish a level with power-ups, you can choose to store them for later (when you restart a level, you can choose to take out a stored power-up).
The only exploration AI games are 4 for the NES (Japanese-exclusive) and Super AI2 for SNES.

I think the NES first Adventure Island must have been much harder than either the Arcade or Master System Wonderboy games. (I never had a problem with the Master System version as a child at all there were games I had that were too difficult (Ultima IV) but Wonderboy wasn't one of them).

Never met an Adventure Island or Wonderboy game I didn't like. I have not played the Gamecube remake, the Wiiware game wasnt bad but looked outsourced.

Did Hudson ever put Master Higgins, Bonk or Bomberman in any of the Mario Party games?
