Wonder Boy, released by SEGA in 1986, may look like the product of a more innocent time. It is a video game based on a simple character, that rides a skateboard and throws hammers at snails. The player must guide him through 7 areas, each consisting of four rounds. The scenery is made up of forests, hills, oceans, caves, ice palaces and occasionally mountains lands. Wonder Boy can benefit from the temporary protection by an angel. There are also bad and good eggs, that carry more or less pleasant surprises. At the end of each level there is the boss.
