OFLC Update: Wonder Boy in Monster Land
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
The OFLC has rated one new game today: Wonder Boy in Monster Land is the second game in the Wonder Boy series and the last game in the series we didn't have on VC yet (Not counting the Japan-only Monster World IV). The game ditched the original Wonder Boy's gameplay entirely, instead going for a more RPG-oriented gameplay style. Alongside simple platforming, you will also have to defeat enemies for money to buy better equipment, and experience.
Once the game has been released, we will have at least one version of each game in the series on VC. We'll still be missing the "Wonder Boy" versions of two of them, however - Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap and Wonder Boy III: Monster Lair, which are currently both on VC as their TurboGrafx-16 conversions, Dragon's Curse and Monster Lair (Respectively). Of course, we'll also still be missing Monster World IV, but as it was a Japan-only release and is quite text-heavy, it is debatable whether it will be an import title or not.
