About The Game
Wonder Boy is an horizontally scrolling arcade video platform game where the player controls a little boy venturing through Wonderland.
There are 4 areas, each with 4 levels and end bosses. Walking and jumping depletes your energy so you must eat food found along the way.
Licensed to Escape.
Chris E McClard holds the official official record for this game, on factory setting, with 1,217,240 points on 06/05/2005.
A deluxe version (bootleg ?) was made by Vision Electronics (see Updates section for more information).
Wonder Boy Deluxe has a dip switch to control how fast the energy decreases.
