Is this an awesome cover or what?

While writing up today's "10 video games that made my life gayer" post, I came across the following box art, which graced the cover of the Japanese Mega Drive version of Wonder Boy III: Monster Lair.


I'm sure some of you will say it's scary, but I think it's awesome. Of course, I've always had a soft spot for the PC Engine/TurboGrafx-16 version of the game, so I'm hardly unbiased on this subject.

I like it a lot! I take colorful covers before... anything else, really, anyday! But the monster with his eyes pointing everywhere creeps me out. If he just could look at one place I'd be more relaxed.

Ummm...what?

Ha! Yes, I could see why the slot-machine mushroom (??) with crazy eyes might bother you, starfighter!

It kind of makes me hate slot machines.

Fair enough, luminairis, fair enough :)
