About

Boasting beautiful, hand-drawn animations and a re-orchestrated soundtrack, the cult classic returns with a unique blend of exploration, action, and adventure! Cursed into a half-human, half-lizard monstrosity by the Meka-Dragon, you are in search for a cure! The only way you can return to human form is to find the Salamander Cross, a magical item with the power to remove curses... With each dragon slain, the curse intensifies, transforming you into different animals! Explore large, interconnected locations populated with grumpy monsters and exotic dragons! Play as the game’s classic character, Hu-Man, or as his brand-new, long-awaited co-star Hu-Girl. You can also inhabit Lizard-Man, Mouse-Man, Piranha-Man, Lion-Man, and Hawk-Man, and use their unique abilities to uncover the land’s deepest secrets. Enjoy 3 difficulty levels catering to players of all types, and switch from modern graphics and sound to 8-bit graphics/audio at any time - even during gameplay!

NewGen meets OldSchool without a Seamless! OMG as I love it! < 3 As a Child I pulled it on the Sega GameGear And, because of my Age, I didn't get any further in some places, which is why I always led the Character as in Role-playing around the World and came up with "Quests" in the Levels that were open to me. At some Point I entered Random some Passwords until by Chance I found one which almost put me in the Final Game with all The Unlocks or at least almost all of them! :D Now here I felt right back home after Decades. I haven't seen such a lovingly designed game forever. This great, hand-painted Graphic is incredibly beautiful and the Re-setting has been done very professionally. All, of course, always inspired by the Original Game! You can even switch the Graphics back to the Old 8-Bit graphics during the game With the touch of a button, just like the Sound. This allows you to see how detailed everything is designed up to the Music, which of course has now been made in Orchestras but can also be put back on the 8-Bit music and so super listen to the Beat. That's just great! :) Immediately grabbed the Nostalgia and reminded me of the World and shared the Secrets in it. Unfortunately, it never started as a Child and will finally have the Opportunity to complete it! :) The Controls feel great and you never feel like you haven't done anything because the Controls are too spongy. On the contrary... You can get out quickly how everything works and can do right Tricks to eliminate your Opponents faster. :) In tricky Places, you can switch quickly with The help of the 8-Bit graphics to see more precisely which Pixel ends for a targeted Jump. Class! :) The Variety thanks to the individual Transformations and the Armor, Swords and Items makes the Platformer experience simultaneously a RolePlayGame In which you not only have to run and jump skillfully, but also solve small Puzzles and explore the World in order to continue ahead To step. The Price of just under €20 actually seems to be a bit happy-like at first, but then when I saw the result and inquired what work behind it is, I find €20is just the right Price for What has been done here. You didn't "just" port the Game you have improved it graphically and soundtechnically but still left the Possibility to keep the old Look ... So you have virtually 2 Games in one. First the "Port" or "The Orginal" and once "the Beautiful Version" or "The Remake." :) In the Gallery in the Main Menu, you unlock various Pictures, Drawings, Gifs and Films at the game, which, among other things, bring the Process, i.e. the Making-Of, closer. Grade that opened my Eyes to how much Work and Love there is in it! Can highly recommend it to any Platformer fan and also to any nostalgia fan! New Gamers as well as old Hands are served here and have the Opportunity to play Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap AND the way they want to! :) If €20is too expensive, you shouldn't flare for long in the sale at the Latest! But €20for what the Devs have fabricated here is not only the Price of the Game, but also the Bow to a great Game Manufacturer that holds more than he promises ... Something like that needs to be supported for still great Games! :)
