Play Time (May, 1992)
Resümierend bleibt festzuhalten, daß Wonderboy beim nächsten Einkauf sicherlich zur engeren Wahl gehören sollte.

Wonder Boy also saw a decent Game Gear port in the early 90s, though it was renamed Revenge of Drancon in the States and given an ominous looking cover; presumably to remake Wonder Boy with an early 90s Sega “edge.” The game is the same as the Master System version, albeit with slightly fuzzier graphics (dat blurry Game Gear screen), less enemies, and unless I’m crazy, more slowdown; Tom-Tom just doesn’t seem to be on his running A game, as he is in the Master System port. All the extra levels and features are here, though. For gamers who like their screens small and their batteries exhausted, you could do worse than Wonder Boy.
Génération 4 (Feb, 1991)
La réalisation de Wonder Boy est excellente avec un très bon scrolling, de bonnes animations et de non moins bons bruitages. En bref, un des bons softs Gamegear !
Basically, nothing more than Wonder Boy on the tiny screen. Unfortunately on the Game Gear, Drancon does not play as smoothly as on the Master System. Colors are vibrant, however, and good graphics and soundtracks make up for this otherwise slow game.

Revenge of Drancon is a good action game for the Game Gear, and should provide at least a few days of colourful platformer fun - especially if you're an Adventure Island fan, and haven’t already had your fill of the original Wonderboy.
1UP! (Aug 24, 2007)
C'est dur d'être enthousiaste avec ce premier Wonder Boy. On peut s'y amuser, vraiment et sincèrement, mais à peine plus loin que le premier niveau. Après, c'est la même chose, une routine s'installe vite avec juste quelques éléments de nouveauté; c'est comme une trop petite dose de vanille dans un gâteau, que l'on sent à peine sans pouvoir en savourer le goût. C'est cela, Wonder Boy manque de saveur, cela rend même un jeu comme Alex Kidd qui est trop dur, relativement moche et peu jouable, plus intéressant au bout du compte.
