That one probably deserves its own thread, but I am too illeter... illettra... I am too lazy to take fancy screenshots and make extended descriptions!
The Wonderboy 3 remake from Lizardcube, previously available on the PS4, was launched on Steam today:
This is quite an incredible piece of work. The game screams the love for its original material through and through, even in its option menu.
The main author and programmer of this remake is Omar Cornut, who is known for Meka, one of the most accurate emulation efforts around, which he dedicated to the Sega Master System. He wanted every slight glitch, every little off-pixel, rendered in his emulator back then, and that same attention to details shows through this original port. While it may seem like a gimmick, the ability to switch on the fly between retro and new looks and sounds is quite amazing - and could be welcome, considering the new aesthetics may be divisive to some.
While the gameplay is untouched, some concessions have been (happily) made to the modern player, like letting you keep your money upon your death - although there are various difficulty modes, so maybe that is absent from the hard one.
And you can play as the legendary Wonder Girl.
There are lovely touches (visiting the shops in both retro and new looks is worth it), extra bonus unlocked as you play... hell even the credits are a sight.
And the original game is still an incredibly innovative and good game to this day.
Here is a random video I found, exhibiting the two faces of the remake (I didn't figure how to do that in the PC version, not that I would, it is quite confusing). It is commented, sorry for that.
Edit: I should probably mention, for those who don't know the original, that it is a quite short game.
