The Wonder Boy series has some beautiful endings.

In The Dragon's Trap, you have a bittersweet moment of leaving your past behind and restoring your humanity.
In others, you get married and even have a close friend once thought lost returned to you.
This series is pure magic! ?

[Hack] Wonder Boy Death Counter SEGA Master System

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ITr_6O-cYlw

Quote
The intent of these modifications is to beat the game with the least amount of deaths possible. I think hard platformers are a-ok if the game is not too punishing about it. Think Jumper, Meat Boy or Celeste. I think letting the player keep trying is great!

Here's what I changed:
1. The game starts with "x 0" as a deaths count.
2. Every time you "die", that number goes up.
3. [not changed but kept] The counter doesn't go above 99 (but the counter in memory still goes up).
4. Once the counter goes above 255, it changes it back to 99 to keep the game from triggering game over or rolling back to 0.
5. 1-ups don't count up the "death counter".

Wonder Boy Creator Reveals His Favourite Wonder Boy Game







Quote
Ryuichi Nishizawa : "It's Monster Land (Arcade)
That game was the first design to combine platform action and RPGs, and I think that game, although rough around the edges, had the seeds of many ideas scattered throughout it.
The sequels since then have been the result of nurturing those seeds."

The Atari Jaguar Almost Got Alex Kidd, Altered Beast, Streets of Rage, Phantasy Star, Golden Axe, Shinobi, Wonder Boy and ESWAT







Quote
Shortly after the deal was signed, Sam Tramiel suffered a heart attack and control of Atari Corp was passed back to his ageing father, Jack.
With the prospect of seriously challenging Sony, Nintendo and Sega in the upcoming next-gen console war getting slimmer each month, the elder Tramiel wisely decided it was time to get out of the video game business and brokered a reverse merger with hard drive maker JTS on July 30th, 1996.
Atari, and the Jaguar, were dead.
As you can see from these scanned documents, Sega was willing to ...
