Wonder Boy III was one of the ‘must-have’ games for the Master System back in its day, and as such it is worthy of your consideration on the Virtual Console. Unfortunately it is overshadowed by a superior version on the TurboGrafx-16 system which is already available on the Virtual Console. This version would be most recommended to nostalgic Master System fans who want to become reacquainted with the same title they played all those years ago. If that’s you, then this is the one to buy, but everyone else should cough up 100 points extra to enjoy a more refined experience.

The Wonder Boy series has a strong fan following that still exists today. Dragon's Curse doesn't have the Wonder Boy branding, but it is almost the exact same game as the Master System hit Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap. Since the Virtual Console doesn't yet support the SMS, this is as close as fans are going to get for now – and seeing as this version is graphically and audibly updated, it's not such a difficult compromise.

Again, it's hard to avoid the Castlevania comparison, and if you consider this a bright and breezy kid-friendly version of that vampiric classic then you'll have a good idea of what to expect. Solid fun.
