Wonder Boy (USA, Europe) CRC 73705c02
Hack by Lennux aka EmuBoarding
2013/2021

This Wonder Boy hack started in 2013 and thanks to Calindro and his great Emulicius I managed to do almost anything I wanted. Hope you like it.
I changed the main character, his girlfriend, some enemies, the color palettes, the characters' names, the final text and much more. Unfortunately I didn't find the graphics on the title screen so I had to adapt it as much as possible.

I decided to make 3 patches. Normal, Easy and Very Easy. The first is just the modifications leaving the difficulty of the game the same. The second the vitality bar fills up as soon as you eat something. And the third one besides the bar you don't die when you encounter animals, stones, fire and etc ... you just lose vetality.

I also put the modification that lets you choose up to stage 10 via secret code. Before, I only left it until stage nine.

Hope you like it! This is already the final version.

Thx to Calindro and Brazilian romhacker Mr Fox!

This is awesome! The original Wonderboy was one of my favorite games in the arcade and direct port to the Sega Master System so for someone to hack this is really cool. Do you have any Dev diary, docs, blog on how you completed this project as I think that would be interesting? Finally, one thing I noticed is your character reverts back to the original Tom-Tom when you get the skateboard; not sure if this was intentional or just ran out of time to make consistent? Great job!

The Sk8 part did not put the NES version sprites because I found them very ugly hahaha. But I can put it. Smoothly. I will make a patch with this version. Glad you liked it. I have some things saved from how it was done. But from 2013, the year I started hacking, I have almost nothing.

It's a nice idea (even thought I am partial to Wonder Boy ;)
Would be nice to finish it with the missing sprites and replace the title screen.
