VC Friday: Give the gift of Wonder Boy this Christmas


We've already discussed how much of a holy mess the Wonder Boy series is, and today European and Australian folk will be able to sample a small part of the jumbled franchise, with the release of Monster Lair, as it appeared on the Turbografx-16 (a Sega Mega Drive version appeared a year later, though only in Europe).

Whereas Monster Lair is perhaps the highlight of this last VC update before Christmas, this blogger will admit to having fond recollections of the fighting sequences in NES ice hockey title Blades of Steel, while those of you with an "Extreme!!!" bent may wish to throw 500 Wii points in the direction of Skate or Die!
  • Skate or Die! -- NES -- 500 Wii points
  • Blades of Steel -- NES -- 500 Wii points
  • Monster Lair -- Turbografx -- 800 Wii points
