Act fast before the deal ends.

This week’s Epic Games Store free offer has come at last, and this time it’s for publisher Dotemu and developer Lizardcube’s Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap. Serving as a remake of 1989’s Wonder Boy III: The Dragon’s Trap, this lovingly animated 2D platformer will remain free to claim until July 21 at 11 AM ET. As soon as we reach that time, the Epic Games Store will begin offering M2H and Blackmill Games’ Tannenberg until July 28.

According to Wonder Boy’s Epic Games Store page, the title sees its main protagonist succumbing to a curse that transforms him “into a half-human, half-lizard monstrosity.” To break free of this curse, players must go on a quest to obtain the magical Salamander Cross. However, as you progress and defeats more dragons, your curse will intensify and cause you to turn into various animals, including a hawk, piranha, and mouse. This ends up benefiting the protagonist more than it harms him, though, as these animal forms grant him new abilities that will make fighting enemies and traversing the environment much easier.

 

Tannenberg brings the battle home next week

Many may recognize Lizardcube as one of the developers behind the excellent Streets of Rage 4. Obviously, that game and Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap play nothing alike. But if you want to experience the developer’s earlier work, then this free offer presents a perfect opportunity to do so.

As for Tannenberg, the game replicates the harrowing battles of World War I for players to experience. Tannenberg stands out from other games of its kind not only thanks to its commitment to realism but also due to its support of up to 64 players, allowing for truly massive battles. These factors may make the game more uncomfortable for those who see these titles as making light of real-life historical tragedies, but others will undoubtedly find value in them.
