Coming from a big company such as Zynga you know you’re in store for a detailed and high quality game which is apparent straight from the loading screen with nice graphics and great soundtrack putting you right into the shoes of the story. Before you know it you’ll be thrown into Oz and meeting Glinda the Good Witch of the North showing you how to play the game.

Split into separate levels each has players attempting to achieve a particular score within a limited number of moves while some levels will require you to collect a certain number of a particular tile. In order to do so you’ll swap the coloured game tiles to clear them from the game board and score points for doing so. Tiles include a purple heart, red rose, blue ribbon and yellow bricks which all pay homage to the original classic story.

Wizard of OZ: Magic Match has plenty of power-ups and rewards for matching more than 3 tiles at a time though to help you reach those high scores and clear the game board in impossible circumstances.

This includes things like Glinda’s bubble for making L and T shape matches to clear the space around it, the crystal ball which will remove all of a single colour, the lollipop to change colours of tiles and the butterflies for squares which are designed to seek out items and break hazards on the game board.

With 100s of levels linked to the Wizard of Oz story, variety of levels and high quality design Wizard of OZ: Magic Match is definitely one of the more impressive in the match three genre.
