Indie games give that sense of old and new together: the experience of a flavor between what we were, and what we are.
Virtually contemporary 2D. What is Monster Boy? It is a game inspired by its “parent”: Wonder Boy. Both played on my beloved Nintendo Switch. There is this return of the old titles, and new ones are being made … And that’s not bad: absolutely. Of course, the difference between Wonder Boy and Monster Boy is that one is indie, the other was arcade. Specifically, I played Wonder Boy: Dragon’s Trap: the remake of the game dated 1989 …
I think it’s very famous. (Caparezza himself mentions it in “Abiura di Me”). This new title has a different protagonist: Jin, but even with this we have transformations very similar to those of Wonder Boy, the mechanics are similar. Change the story and something else.
