Retrogaming History (Jun 06, 2008)
Secondo me, Dragon's Curse è il migliore Wonder Boy di sempre. l'avventura di gioco è estremamente varia e tutti gli elementi che la caratterizzano sono realizzati in maniera stupefacente. Non riesco a trovare un reale difetto a questo titolo che ha appassionato motlissime persone e che continua a farlo a distanza di quasi vent'anni ormai. Fatevi un favore, provatelo almeno una volta, la probabilità che non vi piaccia è molto bassa.

The Dragon's Curse was just one of an entire series of great games that never got the respect it deserved. If you are lucky to find this, or any of the other line of Monster World titles, give it a whirl. You won't be disappointed.

Vous l'aurez compris, ce Dragon's Curse fait partie de ces jeux qui vous marquent à vie. La prise en main est immédiate et le plaisir au rendez-vous dès les premières minutes. Bref, une excellente pioche à posséder absolument.
Power Play (Jan, 1991)
Eines der besten Spiele für das Master System wurde von Hudson Soft fehlerfrei umgesetzt. Darüber hinaus hat man die Grafik etwas aufgepeppt und das Scrolling auf tadelloses PC-Engine-Niveau gebracht. Für mich ist Wonderboy 3 mit Abstand das beste Spiel der Erfolgsserie. Die Mischung aus anspruchsvoller Action, intelligenten Puzzles und leichten Rollspielelementen ist den Designern hervorragend geglückt. Insbesondere die verschiedenen Wonderboy-Outfits bieten viel Spielraum für abwechslungsreiche und originelle Levels. Die teilweise japanischen Bildschirmtexte sind verschmerzbar.

Although the graphics are a little blocky, they are bright and suit the game perfectly. The scrolling is very smooth and fast, but it's a pity that it's not parallax. The music, however, is excellent throughout the game and worth listening to through some headphones if you have a GT. Adventure Island is a great game that should keep you playing for weeks.

Dragon's Curse, by Hudson Soft, has very good graphics that are consistent throughout the entire game. Combined with catchy music and good game play, it all makes for a great game. And yes, it is a crossover game. Those of you who own a Sega Master System may recognize this game as Wonder Boy 3. [rank in issue #5]
