This retrospective covers the entire history of the series, from its tangled origins to its final 2D gasps.

History of: Wonder Boy

History of: Wonder Boy

Wonderboy is without a doubt one of the finest franchises of 8 and 16 bit gaming.

Genre Spotlight: Digital Comic Con

Genre Spotlight: Digital Comic Con

When Sega-16 launched, we kicked off our Genesis coverage with a feature on graphic adventures, also known as digital comics. It was incomplete, and we vowed to one day finish it up, but little things like family and jobs got in the way (Pheh…reality). But finally, after all this time, it’s been updated and refined. The genre isn’t a big one when it comes to Sega’s 16-bit console, but what’s there is surprisingly good, and you owe it to yourself to read Digital Comics: A Forgotten Genre to see why these games deserve to be played and enjoyed.
