Westone and Sega’s cult-classic hit Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap has received a third lease on life with a newly-released mobile version.

Redesigned for PC and console in 2017 by Lizardcube and published by retro publisher Dotemu, the title sold more than half-a-million copies and was lauded by international critics in reviews.

Development studio Playdigious has optimized the mobile version – including the iPhone X – to best present its depiction of Monster Land’s environments and menacing baddies. Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap features the same hand-drawn animation from its PC and console counterparts.

The mobile version has also been adjusted for touchscreens and will allow players to enjoy the action platformer on the go. Each of the remake’s highly-lauded additions will be present, allowing fans to switch between classic and remastered visuals and audio on the fly, enter retro passwords discovered from the original 1989 release, and experience the playable debut of Wonder Girl.
