Prison Architect: Xbox One Edition
Prison Architect is a prison-building game where you have to make sure inmates have decent lodgings and don't escape. Hazards like fires and riots can leave your prison decimated so you have to plan for everything. The title launched in Xbox Game Preview many months ago and became quite an expansive experience by the time it left.
Lego Star Wars III
Lego Star Wars III continues the tradition of Star Wars films recreated in the Lego universe. Instead of simply blasting away enemies, you also have to build structures and solve puzzles.
Livelock is a top-down shooter which places you in control of a Transformer-like machine. You have to explore the ruins of a post-apocalyptic Earth and shoot everything that moves. The ultimate goal appears to be restoring humanity, but the real fun lies in using devastating weapons and abilities.
Sega Vintage Collection: Monster World
The Sega Vintage Collection: Monster World, often referred to as the Monster World Collection, contains three Wonder Boy games for Xbox 360. Wonder Boy is a shape-shifting child who goes on a quest to save the world and find a cure for his transformations.
Be sure to download all four of these games next month because many of them are great experiences. Out of all of these, we would recommend playing Prison Architect because it's an incredible title.

That is the story of Monster World II, also known as Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap, which got a remake by Lizardcube on the Xbox One.
Wonder Boy does not transform in other episodes of the Monster World series, except it seems in the upcoming Monster Boy And The Cursed Kingdom semi-sequel. The Sega Vintage Collection: Monster World available as GWG only contains Monster World 1, 3 and 4, so it is missing the exact episode you're referring to.
