This week’s Xbox One Deals with Gold includes one of our favourite ever video games.
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, buy Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap. Lizardcube’s wonderful update of the 1989 Sega Master System classic set a new standard for retro remakes. Its delightful visuals and re-orchestrated soundtrack complement a piece of game design that easily stands the test of time. Read Tom’s review for more on why it’s worth picking up, especially with a 50% discount.
Also coming to Xbox Deals with Gold is Cyanide’s Styx: Master of Shadows, which is reduced by 75%, and Big Bad Wolf’s excellent graphic adventure mystery, The Council. The complete season of five episodes is reduced by 75%
This week’s Spotlight reductions include price cuts for Doughlings: Arcade, and three of Wayforward’s acclaimed Shantae games.
Here’s the full lineup of sale titles. Each game can be downloaded from the Xbox One digital store, or via the Microsoft online store.
