Best Nintendo Switch Games #27 – Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap

Developer: Lizardcube

Synopsis: After defeating a Mecha Dragon, the hero has been turned into a Lizard Man and must defeat all the other dragons in the land to return to his normal form. Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap is a remake of Wonder Boy III from 1989, and contains the same familiar story and platforming mechanics as the adventurer tries to regain his humanity. Along the way, he’ll gain the ability to transform into various other animals, allowing him to explore new areas in different ways.

Why it’s one of the best Nintendo Switch games: Whether or not you played the original title, Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap is a confluence of witty dialogue and enjoyable platforming puzzles. The different animal transformations provide continual variety to the various dungeons you’ll venture through in your efforts to bring down the dragons. The new, 2017 version of the game offers options to play as Wonder Girl or Wonder Boy; in 8-bit or HD. Games like this just go to show how remakes done right can breathe new life into a series many modern gamers may not have been aware of.
