Today, we’re going to teach you 10, helpful tips to ensure that Wonder Boy is a lot easier for you.10. Turn aroundWonder Boy is a weird little platformer. We’ve been trained to believe that being dropped into a level within a 2D platformer means you keep walking right until you get to your destination. That’s not how Wonder Boy works. Instead, you can, more often than not, walk left as well. There will be tons of enemies and stuff to find that way. Don’t think of the left paths as bonus content either.
