posted by Nell Minow

Spooky Cool Labs and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced that The Wizard of Oz game for Facebook has launched to the public. Based on the beloved film, the game sets players on the adventure of a lifetime as they join the Wizard of Oz characters on their trip down the Yellow Brick Road.

The in-game experience includes music from the original soundtrack, video clips from the film and likenesses of its beloved characters, including Judy Garland as Dorothy and Margaret Hamilton as the Wicked Witch of the West.

Players arrive in Munchkinland right after Dorothy’s house lands on the Wicked Witch of the East. With help from Glinda, players become familiar with Munchkinland and begin to build their very-own Munchkintown. They must construct buildings, interact with and protect the locals, and build the Yellow Brick Road in order to lead Dorothy and her friends to their ultimate destination, the Emerald City.

While on their journey through the Land of Oz, players will encounter the other characters from the film, whether on the Yellow Brick Road or fending off the Wicked Witch of the West and her winged monkeys from attacking the town. Players can share their experience with friends by visiting each others’ Munchkinlands and helping with quests, as well as sharing their favorite moments and experiences through various social features.
