Description

Monster World was once a peaceful region. Then, the peace was shattered by an invading army of monsters. A young man named Shion vowed to defeat them and make his land peaceful again.

Wonder Boy In Monster World is the third game in the Monster World spin-off series, originally known as Wonder Boy 5: Monster World 3. It puts the player in control of Shion in his quest to save Monster World from the evil hands of BioMeka. It controls like a standard platform game - run, jump, and kill enemies. The game has light RPG elements such as talking to townsfolk, collecting money to buy items, upgrading your life, and equipping a variety of armor and weapons - staying very close to the Zelda format. You can save your game to continue your quest at a later time.

Trivia

Turma da Mônica na Terra dos Monstros

A version of this game was released in Brazil called Turma da Mônica na Terra dos Monstros, which translates to "Monica's Gang in Monster Land". Instead of Shion, you played Mônica, a character based from a famous Brazilian comic, which still makes a lot of success with the kids. Other characters from the comics also appear in the game, such as Anjinho, Cebolinha, Magali and Bidu.
