When you finish a set, the game starts all over again, but at a higher difficulty level with the creatures moving much faster. It's possible to rack up some pretty impressive scores after a while and somehow, the game loses none of its excitement even after hours of play. It's a real winner!
The Atari Times (Feb 04, 2008)
In closing, let me just say that I'm ashamed of everyone who didn't jump all over the chance to review this excellent gem of a game from BACK IN THE DAY. Not really. Get Wizard of Wor. It's awesome.
The Video Game Critic (Apr 29, 2002)
Wizard of Wor plays much better than it looks. For best results, set the difficult to A, and don't forget to use the right joystick for the single-player game.
The idea of walking around mazes and shooting the enemies with a single weapon may seem like an overly simple concept, and in some respects it is, but Wizard of Wor is surprisingly rich in play value.
Tilt (Jul, 1983)
Un jeu passionnant qui peut sembler, au premier coup d'œil, un peu fruste mais captive rapidement, même s'il n'est pas à la hauteur des jeux pour Colecovision.
TeleMatch (Jul, 1983)
Wizard Of Wor ist sicher die beste der vier ersten COLECO-Cassetten für ATARI VCS, obgleich die Spielidee alles andere als neu ist. In Pac-Man-Manier zieht man mit seinem Männchen-Symbol durch ein Labyrinth.
