A Classic Game: Wonder Boy in Monster Land
I totally loved this game!!!
It was a side-scrolling on RPG on Sega. I loved it because you were able to buy better weapons and equipment and so progress your character like I was able to in the paper RPGs I played at the time. Interestingly it also had a save system; not to the Sega Master System, because that had no hard drive, but via a system of codes where the game gave you a string of characters to represent your position and kit which you wrote down and could re-enter to resume. I was never able to read my own writing though and so lost saves often.
Still can’t read my own writing. :(
