The Wizard of Oz Ad Blurbs (Apple II)
Advertising BlurbsBack of Box - Commodore 64 (US):
You awake, and as your eyes blink open, you begin to remember what happened . . . Aunt Em, Toto, the cyclone snatching your little farm house from the middle of the big Kansas prairie. But only Toto is with you now, and your house has landed in a world that doesn't look like Kansas at all.
In this marvelous adventure game you are Dorothy, the brave young heroine of L. Frank Baum's beloved story THE WIZARD OF OZ--and you'll set off exploring the magical land of Oz. Along the way you'll meet some unusual friends, like the Munchkins, the Scarecrow, Tip, and Jack Pumpkinhead. You'll have challenging adventures, too, as you learn to use the magic powder of life, escape from flying monkeys, find the Wizard of Oz, and more. Best of all, you'll actually "talk" with characters and make all the decisions about where to go and what to do--because WIZARD OF OZ is interactive software at its finest.
In addition to colorful graphics and the ability to understand complete sentences, WIZARD OF OZ features WordWindow™, a special "help" device that makes game play even smoother and more fun. Plus, you'll get a poster that will introduce you to many of Oz's wonderful characters.
Based on the series of novels written at the turn of the century by L. Frank Baum, WIZARD OF OZ adventure game was designed for ages 10-adult.
