Ooo boy does that look like a turd compared to the other 2 games. I hope it goes through a redesign.
They had such momentum with the other two newer releases. What happened to this one? Doesn’t look like nearly the amount of care and quality went into this remake.
What a let down. Looks like a student project. I am very surprised that whoever is in charge would approve this horror for public viewing.
Ugh, it looks cheap…
Dragon’s Trap and Cursed Kingdom looked great, i was hoping Asha would get the same treatment
Do they think framedrops are okay in 2020?
Looks kinda janky. Hopefully the remaining months of development are used for polish. Seems like it desperately needs it.
1994 version looked better.
Sometimes I wonder about other people. Every time I think a game looks cool, nearly everyone else is insulting it and saying things that I didn’t even notice (such as when people talk about frame rate drops).
you seriously didn’t notice the frame drops or you’re just trolling?
I don’t understand the logic of calling this game Wonder Boy when you don’t actually play as a boy… Asha is a girl, why not just call this Monster World just like they did with the original version?
