Dear visitors and members, with the staff having moved on to other life interests and as a result of changes in people's internet usage habits, the CodeWalrus community have migrated almost entirely to Discord, IRC and WalrusIRC and is now essentially a place where to hang out, chat about gaming, programming, music, anime, and chill. As a result, even though the CW forums will remain open for posting, for faster TI, Casio or HP calculator help and news we recommend using the bilingual TI-Planet forums instead.

We encourage everyone to join our Discord server now.

Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap remake
« on: September 12, 2017, 06:39:55 am »
For anyone here who was a Sega Master System owner back in the 80's, or even if you just appreciate retro platform gaming, then I think you'll enjoy this which I happened to stumble across recently. The classic game, Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap, has been remade for PC, PS4 and Xbox One! Along with porting over the classic graphics and 8-bit audio, there is also beautiful new HD hand drawn style graphics and updated music/sound. I'm yet to purchase and play it myself, but I played the original many times when I was younger, and I'm looking forward to giving it another go with the updated look.

I'll definitely be buying it at some stage, but I'm forcing myself to wait until I get a few work projects finished first. Otherwise Wonder Boy will distract me too much! :P

On the SMS, we had Wonder Boy (the original) and Wonder Boy in Monster Land, and we used to rent out the Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap cartridge regularly from the local video store. I often contemplated trying to adapt the original over to the TI-83(+) monochrome calculators over the years but never had a go at it. It would be more feasible now with the TI-84+CE, so maybe one day! And given that the SMS ran on a z80, I could try disassembling the original ROM and just straight porting it.

A remake or port of the original would be awesome :D
