The Wizard of Oz is a platformer based on the 1939 movie of the same name. The goal of The Wizard of Oz is to reach the eponymous Wizard of Oz and find a way back to Kansas. On the way, Dorothy must beat the Wicked Witch of the West and recover her dog Toto (which is a plot element unique to the game).
The game is a North American Super Nintendo exclusive.
Dorothy Gale travels to numerous different areas, many of which never appeared in the movie, including: Saffron Fields, The Red Country, and Xanith Farms. There are four playable characters within the game; Dorothy, who can jump, shoot all items picked up from her wand and kick; the Scarecrow, who can jump, jab with his pitchfork and shoot gems; the Tin Man, who can kick, chop with his axe and shoot gems, though he cannot jump; finally there is the Cowardly Lion, who is similar to Dorothy, he can climb trees, jump, attack with his paws and throw gems.
