Wonder Boy or Monster Boy?

I already posted one a video of Wonder Boy. Now on the same “plot” or genre there’s Monster Boy and the cursed kingdom, “created in cooperation with series creator Ryuichi Nishizawa”

Wonderful. Even if proprietary. And for “plain old computers” is served throught Steam. Ok, it runs on Linux too. Bi-wonderful.

So Monster Boy is not available on Linux. No worries, the other, the one which can switch at will to a cute 8-bit version, Wonder Boy and the dragon’s trap is available on GoG.Com.
