Video Game: Wonder Boy III Monster Lair

Leo and Purapril from Monster Lair.
Wonder Boy III: Monster Lair, sometimes shortened to simply Monster Lair, is the third game in the "Wonder Boy" series. An auto-scrolling platform game/shoot em up hybrid, it is the only game in the series to offer 2-players co-op play. Players control either the Leo or Purapril, as they set off to follow in the footsteps of Bocke Lee Temjin and free their land from a monster invasion.

Originally released in 1988, it was the last "Wonder Boy" game released for the arcades and saw home versions for the TurboGrafx-CD in 1989 and the Mega Drive in 1990.
