7.1/10

“While its antiquated roots cause some minor frustration with unreliable hitboxes and unnecessary grinding, the foundational combat and exploration is still engaging and fun after 30 years. From long-time Wonder Boy fans to platformer enthusiasts who’ve never heard of it until now, you’ll likely be able to find whimsical fun and a neat bit of genre history in this charming adventure.”

“The Dragon’s Trap’s HD sheen belies the simplistic gameplay of its era, but there’s undeniable charm in that simplicity.”

4/5 stars

“Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap is a faithful remaster of a classic that a lot of folks missed. Developer LizardCube has kept the original gameplay completely intact and laid some amazing 2D art and great remastered soundtrack over top of it. It’s a faithful preservation of a classic, retaining any of the gameplay pitfalls the original had, but it’s surprising how great Wonder Boy III is with some visual and aural polish.”
