1989’s Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap could have felt way out of its league here in 2017, but the impressive job that LizardCube has done updating it for our modern era has really given it a second life. It’s a great retro-meets-future gaming experience marred occasionally by elements that just don’t work as well all these years later.
Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap may be out of its time – it's rock hard, a little obtuse, and won't lead you by the hand – but benefits from a stylish and sensitive makeover that stays painstakingly true to the mechanically perfect original. The Dragon's Trap is a remarkable thing, then. Not only is it a retro remake that's actually not crap, it's as good as the day it first came out and even holds its own against modern releases.
Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap raises the bar for remasters far above and beyond slapping on a few filters and calling it a day. Given how much I loved Lizardcube’s attention to detail and passion behind this SEGA classic, I would almost beg to see the team tackle my favorite game in the series. If Lizardcube and Dotemu can put the same passion into Wonder Boy V: Monster World III, I could see myself falling in love all over again.
