''Super Boy 4'' again changes Super Boy's design, this time not being based off of Mario. The graphics, however, are still ripped from ''Super Mario World'' but with reduced color depth due to the Master System's technical limitations. Despite this, they are an improvement on ''Super Boy 3'''s due to the Master System having better graphical capabilities than the MSX or SG-1000. All sound effects and some of the songs are recycled from ''Super Boy 3''. The game's items, unlike the first three games, are not randomized.

Similar to ''Super Boy 3'', featuring the same physics and basic gameplay engine. The powerups and enemies are the same, but more detailed. The controls are notably poor, probably due to poor programming. There are also a few known glitches in the game, such as Koopa shells getting stuck, Super Boy himself getting stuck, and that invisible items can be stood upon (therefore revealing their position).

Super Boy 4 is the fourth and supposedly final game in the Super Boy series by Zemina. It was released in 1992 exclusively for the Sega Master System. The game is infamous for the Glove powerup, which turns Super Boy black.

Overview

Super Boy 4 again changes Super Boy's design, this time not being based off of Mario. The graphics, however, are still ripped from Super Mario World but with reduced color depth due to the Master System's technical limitations. Despite this, they are an improvement on Super Boy 3's due to the Master System having better graphical capabilities than the MSX or SG-1000. All sound effects and some of the songs are recycled from Super Boy 3. The game's items, unlike the first three games, are not randomized.

Gameplay.

Similar to Super Boy 3, featuring the same physics and basic gameplay engine. The powerups and enemies are the same, but more detailed. The controls are notably poor, probably due to poor programming. There are also a few known glitches in the game, such as Koopa shells getting stuck, Super Boy himself getting stuck, and that invisible items can be stood upon (therefore revealing their position).

Trivia

  • This is the first Super Boy game to be an exclusive for the Sega Master System.
  • This is the first Super Boy game not to have Super Boy's design edited off of Mario.
  • If Super Boy gets a Glove powerup, which lets him shoot fireballs, he infamously turns black and wears yellow clothing.
  • During the ending, after Super Boy gets into his scripted position, his legs continue to move.
  • Super Boy (in his minimized form) appears on the front page of BootlegGames Wiki.
  • The game was also released for the Mega Drive, albeit as the Master System game housed in a Mega Drive cartridge.
  • The box art is taken and modified from Kickle Cubicle for NES.
