    Was that not called Alex Kidd instead of Wonderboy? Was here if I'm thinking about the same thing.

    Wonder Boy is the Cave man with the blonde hair throwing axe's at giant snails and riding skate boards etc, it was also know as Adventure Island.

    Adventure island was by hudsonsoft, it was a wonderboy 'tribute'. It's not the same game. Super adventure island came out on the snes, and I'm not sure if adventure island was available on the pc engine or not.

    To be honest I did download it on Wii VC the other day and its awesome, pixel perfect and running at 60hz. Cant wait to bag it on the 360 now, give them leader boards a run for their money lol.

    Really don't see the need for these re-packaged games, the silly borders irritate me and the game is in no way enhanced from the original (aside from Achievements etc). Might as well just buy an original Xbox for £20 at CEX..

    Sorry mate, what do you mean by silly borders?

    These games are pixel and ratio perfect when using the dot by dot option. Wonderboy in Monster Land looks stunning.
