Magical '80s adventure Wiz is this week's Arcade Archives release

June 27, 2020 1 min read

This week's Arcade Archives release has me stumped, as Seibu Kaihatsu's Wiz - now available to download on PS4 and Nintendo Switch - is one of the few games to grace Hamster's retro range that I've never encountered once in my extended life of coin-op classics.

Released back in 1985, Wiz is a side-scrolling adventure which sees players put on their wizard's cloak and hat in order to journey through a selection of realms on a quest to face off against a ferocious dragon. Our little sorcerer will travel through deep forests, underground caverns, and into the clouds themselves on his quest, battling baddies with a selection of magical skills such as a fireball, a protective barrier and... erm... "Hitting".

You can check out the action in this video, courtesy of YouTuber Replay Burners.
