Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap returns with plenty of action, adventure, and exploration. In Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap, you’ll play as Wonder Boy (or Wonder Girl), who becomes cursed by the Meka Dragon and turns into a lizard. The only way you can become human again is by finding the Salamander Cross, which you have to steal from another dragon.
“All in all, we wanted to restore this classic and ensure it would be enjoyed by a variety of players, from the younger players to those who didn’t have a chance to play the original back in the day and to the core fans of the original,” said Omar Cornut, Technical Director of Lizardcube. “The game feels decidedly retro in the way timeless classics can feel: just right,” said Cornut.
Here’s a description of the game by game developer Lizardcube: “A good curse makes a good game (or so they say)! turned into a half-human, half-lizard monstrosity by the Meka-Dragon, a lonesome adventurer is facing the challenge of a lifetime! In search for a cure, our mutated anti-hero will explore the many traps of Monster Land… and defeat many stuff-throwing, curse-wielding dragons. How many more transformations can one hopeful body survive, as it turns into a Lizard, a Mouse, a Piranha, a Lion, and a Hawk… The six different forms of our shape-shifting hero make up the cast of this non-stop action-adventure platformer!”
