    I purchased Monster World IV on both Wii and PS3 from memory. M2 did the emulation for both.

    There's a Sega Ages port on PS2 (M2 again) that offers 240p for CRT fans.

    I played it up to the last level and quit. Keep meaning to give it another go and finish it.

    Vomit, a mash up of Wonder Boy/Mario/Zelda/Prince of Persia styles. WB3 remix, defined it in its own style, retro and new, not hybrid shite like this. Trying to accommodate to so many aspects...

    I don't think it's that actually. Looks like it's an attempt at a straight remake of Monster World IV, just terribly executed.
