"Wonderboy III - the Dragon's Trap http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wonder_Boy_III:_The_Dragon%27s_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...
