Style and atmosphere inside the game:
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is one of numerous jewel-swapping puzzles that features colorful graphics, captivating storyline, standard set of sound effects and relaxing orchestra music. As for graphics, it is well done; backgrounds are real work of art. One of the highlights is storyline that retell in brief famous book" The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" and meet you with characters. Unfortunately the story is represented in the form of text without animation or even comics strip. All in all, despite well-trodden game concept and one game mode only, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is quite playable game that may be interesting for those who want to relax after a difficult day, playing simple game and reading interesting story between levels.
