Title: The Wonder Boy/Monster World thread
Post by: SOUP on June 29, 2012, 11:25:21 am
I've only beaten the last two titles in the series, but even at that, I'm surprised this series doesn't get more attention nowadays. 
These are hands down some of the best 16-bit titles I've played, and they're just overflowing with character.

I finally finished Wonder Boy in Monster World yesterday, and I'd probably put it just behind Monster World IV.  The combat's a bit tougher than Monster World IV, but you can equip a spear to give you a bit more of an attack range. Instead of the episodic levels of Monster World IV, everything is interconnected in a Metroid meets Zelda kind of way.
The only real downside to Wonder Boy in Monster World that I found, was that the final boss is ridiculous. The entire screen is trying to kill you, while you jump around on a treadmill, trying to avoid a buzz saw in the ground, and every once in a while hitting the actual boss.

I'd like to give  Wonder Boy in Monster Land a shot, but if it's any thougher than this one, I doubt that I'll be able to beat it.

Also: The emulation on these Vintage Collection games is fantastic.

Which version of Wonder Boy in Monster World is it?  The Genesis/Mega Drive, I presume?  I really want to play it.  I finished Monster World IV a few months back and it's a masterpiece.

Wonder Boy in Monster Land is cool, but obviously since it's the earliest of the series (well, aside from just plain Wonder Boy), it's more basic than the later games.  But it's still got a very pleasant atmosphere.  It is hard as nails though.

Yeah. It's the Genesis & Mega Drive version (there's a region select in the emulator menu).
If you liked Monster World IV at all, I'd definitely recommend it. The main character will seem quite a bit clunkier to control than Asha, but things get better once you upgrade the equipment.

It's interesting to see the little things that join the two games together story-wise too.

I'll definitely have to at least give Wonder Boy in Monster Land a shot then. I'll just be a bit bummed out if I can't finish it.

I am not sure why I shunned the series for so long, but after fully completing it I consider Monster World IV one of my favorite games of all time now, so I really want to get into the rest. I have played them all previously, but not extensively.

I have always heard The Dragon's Trap is the best in the series, so I am not sure if I should go into that first or save it for last. Most would probably tell me to check out the Master System version, but I think the worse resolution in the Game Gear release will make it overall a bit easier.

Monster Land is actually pretty forgiving, way way easier than Monster World. Just be sure to ignore the boot upgrades!

Another very similar game I think everyone here should check out is Chiki Chiki Boys/Mega Twins. I prefer the Genesis version, but there are too many variations to count. Fantastic game.

Fake edit: Another another great similar game to check out is Tomba, which was just released on the PSN last week. I love the game, but not as much as I remember I did back in the day. Still very good fun.

Thanks for the tips on the boots.
I really want to try out Dragon's Trap, but I think I'll hold out for a Vintage Collection release of the remaining games.

I've started up Wonder Boy in Monster Land.
It's pretty interesting so far, but quite difficult in spots. Right now I'm stuck fighting some guy that shoots rainbow lasers.
My shield isn't big enough to block them, and I just keep dying over and over :(.

Looks like Wonder Boy: Dragon's Trap got physical edition from Arc System Works.
PS4 version only though.

Wait, what?? I don't know much about Arc System Works. Explain how they got it.

Arc System Works acts only as a publisher for Asian physical release.
According to what I read on smspower forum, 'superior' western physical release would be revealed soon (after they got publisher probably, hopefully NOT Limited Run Games).

If you're at the rainbow laser guy, I'm guessing it's that Bull Boss? If so, I hope you haven't been ignoring the boot upgrades as the only way to beat him is to be faster than he's able to blast you.

I'm chiming in cus I recently beat the game. Did it on the Vintage collection (tons of game saves were needed).

You just have to keep rushing him. Stay really close hit hit hit, don't take any breaks or leave any gaps.

Good luck.

If you HAVE to play things in order then don't play Dragon's Trap until you're done with Monster Land. It is a direct sequel.

Add one vote from me for Dragon's Trap being the best of all time. IV being a close second (and better in some ways).

Wonder Boy rules!!

Clockwork Aquario - Free Wallpapers

(https://i.ibb.co/1XHp8XW/Clockwork-Aquario-Peaceful-Moment.jpg)

Quote
“In the 90s, when game centers were dominated by fighting games, there was one title which had never been released, even though it was completed after more than two years of development and repeated changes. This title is Clockwork Aquario. Who would have thought that it would be restored and playable again? I would like to express my heartfelt respect and gratitude to those who have worked so hard to restore it. I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that this work is a great piece of 2D art, where the pixel artists of that time put their hearts and souls into. I’d be happy if people would appreciate and enjoy it.” – Ryuichi Nishizawa

Why was the phantom arcade game revived after 27 years?

Interview with Original version director Ryuichi Nishizawa

(https://i.ibb.co/bWcqxGZ/Clock-Work-Aquario-Interview.jpg)

Quote
What's interesting is that the graphics in old 3D games don't look good anymore, but the graphics in old 2D games are still attractive enough. 2D graphics are timeless, and even with just a few screenshots of Clockwork Aquario this year, we've received a lot of feedback from gamers around the world. People soon realized the beauty of the game and reminded me that Weston was making great games at the time. I was really impressed that the media around the world reported and we all shared the joy of finally releasing such a beautiful game.

Quote
You no longer need to be an elder to talk about the Wonder Boy series with tremolos in your voice.
Since the series has returned to the forefront with a silversmith's remake - Wonder Boy The Dragon's Trap at Lizardcube and Dotemu, and a brand new tribute episode - Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom at Game Atelier, it's been quite a feat.
The two previous projects were French, but now the creator himself, Ryuichi Nishizawa, who will be responsible for giving a second youth to Monster World IV.

Why Are There So Many Independent Physical Publishers These Days?

Quote
Generally, this trend feels like good news for the companies which are facilitating this process, the developers who are getting a bit of much-needed extra cash, and of course the players who not only have more games to play but can start building up their physical collections more.
The fear that digital is the future, for now at least, will have to wait, because independent physical publishers have proven that physical copies are still heavily desired, especially ones of indie games.

Ryuichi Nishizawa: Games have always progressed along with technology, so the stereotype that future games are always better than the past may have something to do with it.
It was kind of hard to imagine that an old game would stay in people's memories and that it would come back into the spotlight.
And thanks to the evolving technology, past works can now run on the latest gaming platforms.

Wonder Boy - Asha In Monster World Director Explains Why He Chose That Divisive 2.5D Art Style

(https://i.ibb.co/cTnS2bf/Monster-World-Asha.jpg)

Quote
Ryuichi Nishizawa : "As you know, 3D video resources are created through four processes: modeling, applying materials, lighting, and projecting with a camera.
This ‘separation of processes’ is very important.
Moreover, the processes other than modeling can be changed in real time while the game is running, which is an advantage."

RN: I have no idea what kind of response I'll get from people who play it.
After all, it's a game that was created 27 years ago and it's designed for arcades with a focus on two-player simultaneous play.
I'm a bit worried that the game might feel unfamiliar for console gamers.
Anyway, if you like pixel art, this game has a lot to offer and I hope you enjoy the lovely designs and animations of the enemy characters that appear one after another.
The second player can also join in during the game, so please give it a try.

One of the big changes is the ability to revisit dungeons that have been cleared once.
In the original game, once you cleared a dungeon, you couldn’t go back to get the Life Drops that you missed.
Many people on the Internet complained about this, so we made it so that you can revisit the dungeon as many times as you want.

The Limited Run version of the SEGA Astro City Mini will only be limited to 3,500 units, which will probably make this version sought after in the collectors market compared to the regular Japanese version.
As far as I know, the SEGA Astro City Mini unit included inside the English packaging is exactly the same as the Japanese retail unit.

Monster Boys? You meant Wonder Boy?
Well, Final Fantasy was as odd too but in the theme.
From fantasy with dragon into modern settings with cars and airplane.

Uh yeah. Wonder Boy, then Monster World, now Monster Boy.

But Final Fantasy shows that each game has a seperate continuity from one another (of if there was any relations between games it's a shoestring relation. I think FFX-2 tried to have some connection with FF7 but I wasn't sure.)

I pressume the hero in shining armour is the same boy who ran through a jungle in nothing but leaves and loincloth.

No, they are different characters.

Wonder Boy 1 - Tom-Tom
Wonder Boy 2 - Bock (Bocke Lee Temjin)

English Master System do said that they are the same characters, but according to Japanese version and to their character, they're not.

According to the series creator (Ryuichi) and also the story in Monster Boy and Cursed Kingdom : yes, same continuity (but separated by centuries I think).
These two pics which supports the claim could fall into spoiler category,
but since the game has been released more than one year I think it's okay if I post these :

Since they had proven the potential of the Wonder Boy series, I wanted to respond to that.
I would be happy if the games I loved playing as a kid were developed in a modern way and made easier to play."

There were three colleagues at first. The first game we developed was an arcade game called Wonder Boy.
Most arcade games of the time were shooting games, and many had dark screens, so we decided that we wanted to create a game with a brighter screen, and settled on making an action game.

Most Challenging Aspects of the Original Monster World IV Game to Update

(https://i.pinimg.com/originals/ca/c9/52/cac952cf51de8a64acdc888a87c60b23.gif)

Quote
The most challenging aspects of the original game to update : The controllers for modern consoles inevitably impart a certain feel to the games they’re designed for, so the most difficult thing in this remake was finding the right accommodation for that reality.
Unlike the Mega Drive, where the controller input data is only 0 or 1, modern consoles allow for an infinite gradation of control between 0 and 1, and changing those data values also inevitably causes a delay of several milliseconds.

Nishizawa: “The concept of the game is simultaneous dual-player action. It is characterized by the feature of holding and throwing enemies.
 You can also throw allied characters. On the other hand, it also means that you can also be thrown.”

"With Aquario we had to restore a lot of graphics that could not be recovered from the source code.
Fortunately, the original Westone developers were able to help us, but to work within the confinements of what the original hardware allows (in that case Sega System 18) is quite difficult.
Everything needs to be programmed low-level."

Can you tell us your motivations for starting your group of companies?

Helmut Schmitz: Nothing is more fun than creating products and services that people love.
That's not only my motivation but the motivation of the whole team. When we have the chance to dig up a great game and revive it, that's really cool.
And of course, we hope that we’re not the only guys being excited about it, but also our customers.
The excitement remains until we announce the game, and when we get such positive feedback from customers and media around the world, as we did with Clockwork Aquario, it's fantastic and motivates us to keep going full steam ahead.

As it happens, the game's well-documented delay in development (the project actually started way back in 1991) has earned it a Guinness World Record.
That's right, Clockwork Aquario now officially holds the record for the longest time between a video game project start and final release.

Yes, there was a Wonder Boy movie before....
(Based on Wonder Boy 3 though, not the first one)

Wonder Boy (2010)


(https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/380049446412484608/983657230425538580/Wonder_Boy_Movie.jpg)

Quote
Wonder Boy (2010) is CGI animation movie adaptation of the Wonder Boy video game series (namely, "Wonder Boy 3: The Dragon's Trap", "Wonder Boy In Monster World" and comic series called "Wonder Boy In Demon World").
Movie was originally slated to be a live-action movie by Uwe Boll and was the main news story in Retro Gamer Magazine issue 51.
After a long drawn out fight with SEGA refusing to ressurrect the character (even though SEGA only owns the trademark, not the copyright), Uwe Boll walked away.
So the project became an unauthorised CGI project led by its screenwriter Robin Morningstar.

Movie was considered as lost media but in 2017, it was mysteriously found as unlisted YouTube video from description of the movie review video.
Film became lost media again when in 2021, Google privatised all the unlisted YouTube videos uploaded before 2017 unless you opt-out.[9]
There has been a DVD at some point in 2011, but it's no longer available to purchase.

I tried watching it, only got through 15 minutes or it or so.
This animated movie came out the same year as Tangled, Despicable Me, Toy Story 3 and HTTYD came out.
I can't even say "This looks like it was made in the 80s or 90s" because Pizar was still well ahead in quality 3D animation during that time.
PlayStation 1 CGI looks better than this.

Why is it so shit?

Because the maker (the scriptwriter) had a little or almost no funding to make the movie.
SEGA has already rejected it, Uwe Boll had left, and all down to the scriptwriter who loves Wonder Boy and doesn't want his script went to waste.
Without funding and SEGA's approval, this is basically like a fan movie.

Will admit, I liked the concept of the "Fountain of Youth" being something already well established and known of in the beginning instead of the end goal. Even going as far as serving as a mixed blessing for Shion. Though why would the bad guy try to drown him in the pool of life I do not know.

That's the most I could figure out from watching a quarter of the film.
