    [Here he is - The Wizard! Can you defeat him?]

    IT REALLY TALKS!

Back of Box - 5200 (US):

    For one or two players.

    Outwit the Wizard and his mysterious minions in the dreaded dungeons of Wor!

    Trapped within the diabolical dungeons of the wicked Wizard, your elite squadron of Worriors must defeat his legion of weird Worlings!

    First come the fiendish Burwors. Then, the devilish Garwors and Thorwors, creatures who seem to vanish and reappear at will. If you're expert with your Laser Blaster and use your Radar Screen, you just might manage to stay alive long enough to get a shot at the winged Worluk and maybe even the Wizard himself! But beware, Worrior--his is a fight to the finish!

    Deeper and deeper into the Wizard's labyrinthine mazes you'll descend... into the Arena and maybe even the Worlord Dungeons! Prove yourself worthy of that honor and you may make it into the Pit, the Wizard's most deadly dungeon with no place to hide!

    Accept the challenge, Worrior, and let the battle begin!

Back of Box - 2600 (US):

    Outwit and outshoot the Wizard in the dreaded dungeons of Wor!
    One moment Worrior. Before you accept this challenge, beware its unique dangers.

    To survive the first dungeon, you must outshoot and vaporize all Burwors.

    Next, destroy every visible and INvisible Garwor and Thorwor or be eaten... ALIVE.

    Bulls-eye the winged Worluk before he escapes. DARE NOT freeze at the escape doors.

    When lightening bolts moving at magical speed appear, take your best aim--it's the angered WIZARD.

    Your defenses: a joystick, fire button, radar screen and will to win.
