I got Wonder Boy in Monster Land rather than Monster World IV since it's an Arcade game and I've always wanted one of those.
It's pretty good! It has a nice art style, and the progression is linear with some minor exploration for hidden items. Combat is pretty straightforward but can be very twitchy and difficult at times. There are some optional battles. You buy upgrades with your money.
Edit: I also picked up Bird Mania 3D on the eShop. It's alright for a 2-dollar game. It's basically a pure endless score attack game, with achievements. Something you would get for 99 cents on the iPhone. Controls better though because of buttons. 3D is pleasant.
It was your idea! But you're uber busy now, I know. Hmm, I wouldn't want to step on any toes and say RETRO GAME CLUB 10. When it wasn't my thing. But it appears that there hasn't been one in a few months anyway.
I wonder what the interest would be if it was just assigned and not voted on.
