Adventure Island

Wonder Boy is the direct inspiration for Hudson's Adventure Island series.

C64 versions

Beau Jolly's Commodore 64 compilation Big Box features a slightly different version of the game, seemingly an earlier development version supplied to Beau Jolly by mistake. The main sprite looks different, the game's iconic skateboard does not appear, a few graphics and musical effects and enemy / platform positions have been changed, and completing the game dumps the player into what appears to be a bugged and uncompletable version of level 1.
