Oh, the nostalgia! It is like all of my Birthdays and Christmases have come at once! Well, actually, my birthdays and Christmases are always full of misfortune, and shit always goes wrong. But, anyway, you know what I mean.
Whenever I have a dream about a video game, 90% of the time, it's Wonder Boy III. It's one of my reoccurring dreams, along with falling airplanes (I live under the flight path, so not a good sign). A couple of night ago, I had another Wonder Boy III dream. This time, there was a remake, where Lizard-Man had his own section to complete in Vampire Dragon's castle, along with the other transformations. When I woke up, I Googled "Wonder Boy III", and "... remake" was one of the suggestions in the auto complete.
Wonder Boy III was one of my favourite games as a little kid. Even though Lion-Man was my favourite, I loved Lizard-Man as well, and always wished that he had a larger role in the game. Not saying that he does in the remake, just saying what happened in my dream. So far, the remake looks like it plays just like the original. I doubt that there will be any extra areas. It would be nice if WE5T 0NE still worked in the remake, though.
You can check out the remake at www.thedragonstrap.com . Developed by Lizard Cube, and published by Dot Emu. I can hardly wait until the release. Until then, I shal play the original for the millionth time.
