THE MANY FACES OF............WIZARD OF WOR
This new feature received alot of positive feedback, so I will keep doing it. This month I am doing one of my favorite games, Wizard of Wor. This is one of the greatest two player games and a pretty decent one player game. But which one of the three versions is the best? Read on to find out!

GOLD MEDAL-This was a tough choice, but the gold goes to the Bally version. While it is called "The Incredible Wizard", we all know it is Wizard of Wor. This version looks and plays great! I first was skeptical about it with the Bally joysticks, but they really work very well with it. This game is reason enough to own a Bally system!

SILVER MEDAL-The Atari 5200 version is a great version and is easily as good as the Bally version, but because of the joysticks, I have to give the nod to the Bally. While the joysticks don't inhibit the gameplay as much as many games, it still affects it.

BRONZE MEDAL-The bronze has to go to the Atari 2600. While it plays well and is quite good, considering the system it is for, it just doesn't compete. The main flaw is the flickering problem. Those monsters flicker like mad and can really distract you. Too bad as this is a very enjoyable game.
