I used to love playing the Arcade classic of ‘ Wonder Boy ‘; a game designed by Ryuichi Nishizawa which started its life as a skateboard rock jumping and axe bashing platformer, that later became the great adventure platformer with RPG elements known as ‘ Wonderboy in Monster Land ‘. Both of these games have lived on in the hearts of many, and as such, one fan is still developing his own Wonderboy game, but this time as an Amiga port of the Arcade classic with a new alpha build!
We’ve mentioned a lot of Arcade conversions on Indie Retro News and you’ll be pleased to learn that not only will Wonderboy be made using Earok’s amazing Scorpion engine , but the game will also being made with Aseprite and PPaint with a palette of 32 colour, requirements of an OSC with some extra memory, and finally the creator is hopeful that this amazing looking port will be finished at some point this year as it’s currently 50% complete! – Do beware however, even though the game does require an A1200, a further optimized version for lower spec Amigas is planned!
