To live is to die...

Did you know?

That there is a Return to Oz video game? It's really old, I figure It's for Atrari or something. ABC kind of graphics.I didn't know such thing existed, theres the original Wizard of OZ for Super NES as well.

Return to Oz (Advert)
(US Gold, 1986)

Follow the adventures of Dorothy as she leaves her home in Kansas and finds herself in the magical world of Oz again, encountering such bizarre creatures as the Wheelers, the evil Princess Mombi, Jack Pumpkinhead and the Nome King. This is one of those icon-driven adventures where you can only select a limited number of commands - in this case, only eight. It's mainly aimed at children, and everyone else will find it far too easy; for example, if you select the 'use' command, the program will only let you select objects which you can use in the room you're in. The graphics are mediocre as well and there are no sound effects at all.

what does this have to do with fairuzabalk? jw
I thought It did. I mean she was In the movie, I don't know If you get to actually play Dorothy or see what she looks like, I assume the game presumes the player as that. It's like kind of playing Fairuza Balk in a game. Which is weird and trippy If you think about It.
oh ok.. i just had to ask lol
btw i hadnt seen the movie thats why it made no sense..
It scares me, especially Mombi. People have beefs It's not theatrical like the original, but It's just staying true to It's original animations and storylines. It's taken from the book, "Ozma of Oz" by L. Frank Baum. I don't think It got recognition for It's movie graphics and what not. It could equal to a classic in my opinion.
Oh yeah, If you buy the VHS, theres a long Fairuza Balk interview at the end, she even introduces the film at the begining.
