National Game Registry 1980: Wizard of Wor

WIZARD OF WOR
original platform
arcade
developer/publisher
Midway

Featuring powerful sound effects and atmospheric presentation perfect for a desperate shooter, Wizard of Wor stars a soldier trapped in an alien-infested maze over an impressive starfield backdrop.  Each maze begins with numerous drones and slowly introduces faster enemies with the ability to become invisible.  Two players may join battle simultaneously, either cooperating or competing, and even the single-player mode features a CPU-controlled soldier ready to provide assistance.

Wizard of Wor was inducted on April 15th, 2009.
