Wonder Boy (ワンダーボーイ Wandā Bōi) and the later Monster World (モンスターワール Monsutā Wārudo) sub-series is a series of video games published by Sega and developed by Westone Bit Entertainment (formerly Escape).

Westone had a unique licensing arrangement with Sega whereby Sega retained the rights to the names "Wonder Boy" and "Monster World", but Westone retained the rights to everything else. Westone, in turn, had a licensing arrangement with Hudson Soft, who created new characters and titles and ported these games to non-Sega platforms. The most well known of these is Adventure Island, which was commercially successful and received new titles.
