PRC211 - Wonderful Dragon Dance (Wonderboy III)

Recommended Posts

The People's Remix Competition 211


Hello everyone and welcome to the People's Remix Competition!

After another tie in PRC209, the remixer had two sources to select in PRC211. DjMokram claimed victory, but this time he didn't let someone else have victory as well. So only one source this round.

This round's source is selected by DjMokram:

*Wonderboy III - the Dragon's Trap is a true gem for the Sega Master System and my absolute favorite game of the 8-bit era.

A game so ahead of its time in fact, that unbeknownst to the masses, it created the metroidvania genre before either of these two franchises.

Sporting a colorful presentation, large and detailed sprites, revolutionary game mechanics, tight controls, a vast world to explore with hidden treasures to find, as well as a jaw-dropping soundtrack composed by Shinichi Sakamoto, The Dragon's Trap is a one of a kind videogame masterpiece that has stood the test of time.

The biggest challenge was to pick only ONE source. Thankfully, every song has strong melodic content, so I let the nostalgia do the rest...

Dj Mokram, you make me cry again. With joy. Damn it, I have to find time to do this round too, no excuses.

edit: Well, it's not my favourite theme from the game, but this and Castle of Illusion are my favourite Master System games.

edit's edit: There are a lot of parts in the piece that you can do just about anything with. I'll try to twist this into a darker piece, but we'll see how that goes (usually the idea I start with goes out of the window pretty soon. My previous round's entry started with an idea to do a (chip) prog piece).

Oh the nostalgia! God, I grew up with this game. I haven't PRC'd in a long time, but I'm definitely working on something for this.

Edit: Uploaded. The title was the only crab-related thing that came to mind.

It's results time.

The votes are in.

Total number of mixes - 4

Total number of votes - 5

Maximum Score - 18.

Evktalo and JerryTerry both received several point. The double first place only equalized Evktalo with JerryTerry, he now even has to share the the last place wooden spoon.

Sggod89 claimed 11 points and the second place.

And the winner is Hakstock with 14 points.

Congratulations Hakstock, a very nice PRC start. Voting was absolutely not straightforward, many different first place votes and not a big difference between first and last place.

One remark, Evktalo and Sggod89 both got a third place extra because Kaeso didn't fill in the third place.

Hakstock, you may select the next source for PRC212. Send your source to me by PM, other options are PM me @ ThaSauce or by e-mailing to (I prefer a PM @Ocremix). Do that as soon as you can, but before Friday.

Remember to select a source with a MID file added. You may also select a source without a MID, but then you must provide a second source with a MID file.

You may select any source from any game, as long as it doesn't have an Overclocked Remix and it hasn't been on PRC before. Check it at the list: (also downloadable via the link above).

Voted (hopefully in time) and if anyone is interested, my bonus mix is up on my site.

Thanks everyone for taking the time to sub entries. :smile:

Nice site. Can you post a download link here, then I will post it on the ThaSauce PRC 211 page to make it an official PRC Bonus Mix with my admin powers:)!!

And your vote was in, it let Evktalo break his last place wooden spoon in two parts, to give one part to JerryTerry.
