Nope,
Wonderboy = the arcadegame and the stoneage guy.
WB monsterland = WB 2 = The slow RPG like (C64 for most of you guys)

WB dragonstrap = WB III = Action RPG ala metroid. Dragonstrap had the great shapeshifting thingie, special locations that only one shape could reach.. and the tunes where brilliant. Looks good enough to be an amiga game most of the time as well..

Sega/west stone later released a lot of wonderboy games on the Megadrive/geneis with the names and numbers all mixed.. ie WBIII is the WBIII arcade game (side scrolling shooter), monsterland is some sort of WB2 remake and so on... none of them really where close to dragontraps amazing feeling of exploring..

@Akira.

Im not referring to that isometric frogger (btw, whats the name of that game? )

Im referring to an 1983 game from ImagineSoftware for Spectrum.
Ive sen on gamebase64.com that theres a 1990 version by cp-verlag.
http://www.gamebase64.com/game.php?id=3997&d=18&h=0

I dont know how this version is, but I recommend you to play the original, is very good.

This game I linked you to is called Jumping Jack! That's why I asked.

Talk about copyright infringement I can upload it somewhere if you want to, it's the nicest Frogger clone I ever played.

Can Dragon's Trap be counted as pre-Amiga? It looked so good that I never realized that. Is certainly in my top-10-games-ever list.

Jumping Jack looks a lot better on the MSX!

Beamrider would be awesome on an Amiga indeed.

Oh.. and what MSX shmups is that... "Genesis" ? Never heard about it...

Big grin Can only think of one not already mentioned...

Split Personalities from the Amstrad CPC 464. Can't remember who made it but I still play it now via CaPriCe. Wonderful little game, shame there were only 10 levels.

A proper conversion of Armalyte would have been fabulous.

Some Spectrum games:

Racing games: SpeedKing2,TurboEsprit and NightmareRally.

Also Hysteria and WorldSeriesBasketball.

I always liked the C64 version of Kwik Snax better than the Amiga version. Completely different game.
And I had a lot of fun with Trashman as well.
