Old school platform strikes back!
If you played the original series as a child or if you love platform games, this is a must have. It is a honest e respectful tribute of the original series, but technically beefed up. You find everything you can expect from this genre. Nothing original but extremely well done. It suits perfectly to Switch small screen as to the big LED TV. "Arcade perfect" as we would say in old times.

It's a great game!
This is a really fun game! It controls well, looks great, has many callbacks to earlier Wonder Boy/Monster World games and has an amazing soundtrack as well. If you like 2D action-platformers, give this one a try!

Beautiful, Well Made Game
Monster Boy is beautiful looking, hand drawn game. From the character and enemy sprites to the detailed background, this game is a treat to look at. Luckily, the gameplay itself is equally as good. The player can control various forms the main character transforms into, allowing for many different playstyles and moves. The combat is easy for normal enemies, but bosses are giant and challenging. Most of the puzzles are solved easy enough, although some end game ones do fall into confusing and difficult to decipher without a guide. The included goodies, a full color manual and sticker sheets make this a game that should be owned physically, especially if you enjoy the older games that inspired this one.

Beautiful and faithful 2D goodness
What can I say? If you love the Wonder Boy series, Monster Boy is pretty much a directi continuation of it with all of the best stuff. Game looks gorgeous, sounds great and is a lot of fun!
