Yellow Brick Road for Sega Saturn

I decided to try out this game that I had unlisted for low interest. My list price was 9$ (59 SEK).
As you may recognize, the game is based on The Wizard of Oz. It was only released in Japan for Saturn and PlayStation and is uncommon. Maybe it wasn't popular.

Most of the game is in adventure mode. It is a point-and-click game of the Myst type popular around '95-'96.  I haven't played very far yet. It doesn't require Japanese but the dialogue is in Japanese so you'll be missing out on that.

I'm guessing the story is from the book, which is:
You are Dorothy from Kansas. You are in the land of Oz and want to get home. You meet the Tin Man, the Lion and the Scarecrow, who all have their own quest. Something with a witch and a wizard you have to meet. Then you get to go home.

In battle, the idea is to push the opponent's men out of the field. You should focus on one of them first, and then the next. You have a couple of different attacks and you select by clicking. No Japanese text in there.

I enjoy the game so far. Nice scenes. Battles are action and are over quickly. Oz is a nice and colorful place too. Looks nicer with an RGB cable.

  1. Hey!
    Jag satte mig med spelet igår.
    Klarade det efter 1,5 timme.
    I slutscenerna/eftertexterna syns Yellow Brick Road II logan. Antar spelet planerades att släppas i flera episoder men det släpptes bara en.
    Vet du något mer?

  2. Jaså det var så kort, haha.
    Jodå det finns en tvåa men jag är inte säker på vilka format det finns till. Kanske bara PC.
