I Remember going down to my local Arcade as a young boy spending my pocket money on this classic p160474-wonder-boy-zx-spectrum-screenshot-select-one-or-two-playerlatform game.  To my delight I got this game free on Cassette on one of the spectrum  magazines it may have been your Sinclair.  The game was one of the quicker games to load on my tape deck connected to my +3 it took about 5 minutes!.
Wonderboy was a great conversion from the Arcade and every level perfectly converted with the limited colour pallete.
The game is very challenging you have to kill an assortment of enemies including wasp, totenpoles and bears.  Many difficult obsticles and jumps.  My favourie part was when you pick up a skateboard and ride it but so very challenging.
160476-wonder-boy-zx-spectrum-screenshot-avoid-these-guys-but-getI never did complete this game but this was my favourite platform befroe Mario and Sonic.
It is worth a play even today so why not give it a try.
