Wonder Boy III: Monster Lair (ワンダーボーイIII モンスターレア) is a very nice port of the true third game in the Wonder Boy series. One of the great mysteries in gaming is how Sega let Westone get away with this port.
On CD-ROM² hardware, Wonder Boy III is very close to its arcade counterpart, but does not feature any parallax scrolling. It does, however, include a CD audio soundtrack with higher quality versions of the music tracks heard in the arcade. The nature of the CD-ROM format means there are also loading times. However, these are small prices to pay for a near-perfect port of what was then a new arcade game, something that was typically impossible at the time.
