A Classic Game: Wonder Boy in Monster Land

March 27, 2012

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. 😦

    Loved this game! The saving system drove me nuts as well.
