Released in 1988, the second game in the Wonder Boy series deviated greatly from the first. Instead of sticking to the prehistoric theme of the first game, Wonder Boy in Monster Land is set in a medieval fantasy land. The game introduced a primitive shop system where you could use your coins earned from enemies and random drops to buy items.

Wonderboy in Monsterland is a pretty tough game to speedrun. The game isn't that hard if you know it inside out and take your time to complete it, but it's pretty hard to do fast. I already found out things I could have done faster (I make plenty of tiny mistakes), but this run has such good elements in it, that I'm confident with it. 2 opponents drop a gauntlet at perfect locations, which makes you twice as strong for about a minute. I manage to lock the grizzly bear twice in the 2 occasions I battle him. I do take too much time to grab money though, and that's where I might save some time in a future run, if I'll ever do it.
