When I was a wee lad spending all my money down at the Arcades, one such game I used to love was that fantastic platformer ' Wonder Boy ' designed by Ryuichi Nishizawa. A game which started its life as a skateboarding rock jumping and axe bashing platformer, that later became the adventure platformer with RPG elements Wonderboy in Monsterland. And it's the original Wonderboy which is getting an announcement today, as thanks to Earok letting us know, the classic skateboarding platformer which many of us still love to this day, will be coming to the Commodore Amiga via the Amigamejam competition.
We've mentioned a lot of Arcade conversions on Indie Retro News these past few months, and you'll be pleased to learn that not only will Wonderboy be made using Earok's amazing Scorpion engine , but the game will also being made with Aseprite and PPaint with a palette of 32 colour, requirements of an OSC with some extra memory, and finally the creator is hopeful that this amazing looking port will be finished for the Amigamejam as a hopeful winning entry....So watch this space
