Wizard of Wor - An enhanced version of a classic arrives on the Commodore Plus/4

Remember the days spent down at the Arcades, hearing the beeps and bops from the different machines, the coloured lights flashing all around, and money being lost for hours worth of enjoyment? Then you might be interested to know that the 1980's Arcade game of Wizard of Wor; a game which also appeared on many other systems such as the Atari 8-bit, Atari 2600, Atari 5200, Bally Astrocade, C64 and plus/4 (ported by TCFS in 1990), has received an enhanced edition for the Commodore Plus/4.

Here is what Plus/4 World says about this latest release from their announcement earlier today. "TCFS is back with another classic game port: Wizard Of Wor Classic! If that name plus game combination rings a bell, no wonder: he has ported this game before, back in 1990. However, that port is not very faithful to the C=64 original. This one however, is. Great care has been taken to ensure the game looks, plays and sounds just right. The cherry on top is a cool new intro by Murphy and a hand-pixelled title screen from Unreal. Are you ready for some hectic, two-player, maze-traversing, monster-shooting fun? Then be sure to load it up and submit your high score!".
