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 of 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 play as Lizard-Man, Mouse-Man, Piranha-Man, Lion-Man and Hawk-Man, and use their unique abilities to uncover the land’s deepest secrets.

Enjoy three difficulty levels catering to players of all types, and switch from modern graphics and sound to 8-bit graphics and sound at any time – even during gameplay!

Wow great price. This wasn’t even on my radar but at this price I’ll have a look thank you
Nice one! Bought - and handily had a few Gold points sitting in my account, so got this even cheaper! Thanks!

A really great game. Heat from me. In fact, I need to get back to it and finish it off - I sort of got distracted by Stardew Valley.
Awesome game. I bought on a similar deal. It is addictive to change between original master system 8bit version (graphics, sounds and effects) and the high-definition new graphics. It is just instant with one button. Gameplay is classic style, I'm very happy with the purchase
I also agree it's very good.

And unforgiving! I never remember it being quite so hard when I was a lot younger...!

Don't hesitate at this price. I paid full price on release and still don't regret that. Hard, hard game mind you.
Voted hot for good price but think I’ll pass on this one.
Been eyeing this up for a while. Does it have a demo I can try?
Thanks OP. Love this
ah man... I have to stop buying and wanting stuff.

I'm not familiar with the game, but if you can't shoot a yak from 200 yards away with mind bullets....well, I'll be disappointed.

I would like to add to my comment, that this type of game is not for everyone.

I suggest to take a look on some videos befofe buying. I think this is potentially intended for players who enjoyed 8bit and 16bit platforms
My favourite Master System game. Bought this on release for PS4. Loved it all over again. Remastered graphics (and music) are really nice.
very short game, no?
coool
"You have 3 gold get". Oh the memories of wondering in monsterland on the Amiga.
Heat at that price cant resist, was going to get the physical but not now
Cool deal, thanks

Wonder Boy came first.
Master System FTW
Heat! Got it for £7.09 as I had gold coins. Thanks
Just bought this £7.14 on the Norway eshop
Heat! Thank you for this deal.
Remember to claim your points from your physical cartridge games and use towards this game
Nice. Had a few quid on gold coins to use my end of this month!
Cool, used a 10 dollar eshop voucher I bought back in November that was posted on here. It's 9.99usd, so ideal.
Great game. Hot!
£6.19 with gold coins. No idea if I'll like it but finally an ok price on the eshop. We need more 50% offers.
Put almost 3 hours into this last night. It’s a little whacky but a great game.
Used some of my reward points! Great price. If only more games were this price they’d sell loads!
High above the mucky-muck, castle made of clouds,
There sits Wonderboy, sitting oh so proudly.
Not much to say when you're high above the mucky-muck.
Yeah, yeah.
Wonderboy, what is the secret of your power?
Wonderboy, won't you take me far away from the mucky-muck man?

Stardew valley is taking up all of my spare time. Brilliant game
Gutted! Do we think it'll be back at this price at any point?
