dangerous Munchkin countryside, perilous halls of Glinda’s Castle, and
the many shadowy lands beyond. Hordes of fiendish foes, nightmarish
minions and beastly bosses will attempt to stop the four heroes on their
quest to cast back the darkness and solve the thrilling mysteries of a
corrupted Oz.

“The experienced team at This Game Studio realized a tremendous
opportunity when they took this globally relevant brand and reimagined
it in a way that would resonate with today’s mobile gamer audience,”

saw the game in early development that it was going to exceed player
expectations on everything from graphics, fresh content, and most
importantly, fun gameplay.”

In addition to the single-player story mode, players can also enter
Arena mode where they join a guild with their friends, collect
companions to battle alongside their heroes, and challenge others in the
Arenas of Oz in real-time player-vs-player (PvP) battles to earn rewards
and climb the leaderboards.
