It's even more confusing than that! Dragon's Trap is on TG-16 as Dragon's Curse, and Wonderboy in Monster Land from Genesis is on the Turbo Duo as Dynastic Hero. :P

Dynastic Hero costs a fortune too. Just stick with the Mega Drive game.

I actually prefer the Sega system version of all the Wonder Boy games, with the exception of Monster Lair - that ones definitely better on PC Engine.

The North American version of The Dynastic Hero for PCE is something like $1600. Not a typo.

Get it on the Virtual Console if you must play that version.

I did end up ordering a Model 1 Genesis, made sure it was a High Def model, think I remember somewhere those have better stereo sound. I was debating on the Mini Adapter with FM sound feature built in, but went with a Power Base Converter just incase I do end up wanting one of the card games or use an accessory that uses the card slot. And then I also ordered a few games from various places. Was finding that alot of people selling are only selling cart only while I'm trying to go complete box and manual, I know if I ever get a snes again I will be collecting for that cart only, I just figured there would've been alot more games complete on the Genesis and Master since their cases were clamshells for the most part except for a few games here and there went card board like Turrican and Phantasy Star IV.

Disney's Quackshot Starring Donald Duck - Genesis
Bug's Bunny in Double Trouble - Genesis (No idea if this game is good, I saw the review on Tiny Toon's Adventures and figured, why not give this one a shot since it's pretty cheap complete)
Tiny Toon's Adventures: Buster's Hidden Treasure - Genesis
World of Illusion starring Disney's Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck - Genesis
Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap - Master
Deep Duck Trouble Donald Duck - Master PAL verison

And then I went out for lunch and stopped at the local retro store and ended up buying Phantasy Star IV complete for like $80 since I saw it complete right there in the front of the case taunting me. Along with Turrican complete minus the poster, but I was like I still have to spend money repairing my PC Engine Duo, must hold off on Turrican for now. But it was there complete for like $40. Hopefully not too many other people are collecting Sega games in my area.

I didn't bother to read what anyone said because the correct answer is "Get a TurboGrafx-16," and if they told you otherwise, they lied to you.

Remember you'll need a SMS controller for the games below. Genesis pad won't work.

Via PBC manual:

The following game cartridges must be played with the Sega Master System Control Pads, Model 3020, only.

Great Volleyball
Shanghai
Alien Syndrome
Wonder Boy in Monster Land
Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?
Montezuma's Revenge
Bomber Raid


The F-16 Fighting Falcon Cartridge cannot be used with the Power Base Converter.
