Wizard of Oz
by Sugarfoot01 on 2021/02/24 05:16
I used to love this game. Been playing it for nearly a year or more but since Legends has been introduced, I hate it. It’s nearly impossible to win a level unless you spend more money to get more time or plays. The level I’m on has only 16 plays to clear the board of boxes or red items when hardly any reds are even on the board.....ridiculous! After spending $5.00 last week, I will finally delete the game.
Game

I love this game I’m so addicted to it
Beware
by Heather 1025 on 2021/02/24 03:39
While the game is fun, don't count on getting the full points added by watching the ads because it doesn't happen especially on the higher points. It might tell you the ad is worth 48 points or higher but it won't credit you that amount.
Why?
by IronRodMan1 on 2021/02/23 02:16
The game is fun and great graphics. However, I am advancing thru the levels just to receive the same movie reels! Seems like to me it’s wanting me to spend money before I will get different reels! Sry not going to do it! So why is that ?
Want a challenge
by 420 Kushh on 2021/02/21 23:07
The a wizard of Oz will get you thinking. It is fun to win.

by Spottie dog on 2021/02/21 19:35
Please fix the issue my game is not loading it just says start up in progress and never loads it’s been this way for about a week and I spent a lot of money on this game so please fix it😡
Not working
by AngryyM0M on 2021/02/21 17:40
My app has not been working for 2 weeks!! I keep checking to see if works but when I click on the app it doesn’t work at all. It just keeps saying downloading it never loads. I’m so disappointed if I have to delete and reload the app I will lose all of my progress 😫 so annoying
Rip off!
by Qazserfvbhuik on 2021/02/21 14:03
As has happened multiple times in the past, I paid for items within app and did not receive product. Paid $6.99 for the new season pass and was supposed to receive 100coin. Receive zero coin. 😡
Legends
by orchidlade on 2021/02/20 18:43
Don’t look forward to legends, you will be stuck on levels for 50 plus attempts if not more, supposed to be a treat, more like a punishment while waiting for new levels; which takes weeks, like the game but stop playing often cuz stuck in legends
Dishonesty at its finest!!!!
by NewEngland68 on 2021/02/20 17:26
Game is fun, but once you realize a move that is supposed to give you a ‘power-up’ (like matching 4 in a row) totally gyps you, it’s time to move on to a game that works when it’s supposed to. Levels are nearly impossible half the time and will require you to play it over and over (sometimes 20 or more times) to progress to the next stage.. and with only 5 free lives that’s how they hook you into spending money. Total RIPOFF. Don’t waste your time or money on these a$$holes.
Great game
by stakerbaker on 2021/02/20 02:40
Love wizard of oz. and I love all the facts about the movie. Lots of fun. 👍
Nothing like the promo!!
by antosksb on 2021/02/19 20:55
So far this game is nothing like the promo I saw -which gave me the incentive to play this - but maybe I need to get to hogher levels in order to see the game board that sucked me in... I’ll stick with it just a little longer
Wont load

Too many pop ups
by Susan Vellek on 2021/02/18 13:07
Too many pop ups and time should only start when playing the game. Cannot play for 12 hours straight.
Update app
by Laurice Abdelhalim on 2021/02/18 04:46
I been trying to open the app all day and it says starting progress but has not opened. Im on level 2298. Im afraid if I delete app and reinstall, i will loose my level. Plz help.

Money hungry game builders
by mslilypadtoo on 2021/02/16 22:17
I have played 5006 games and every one of them has been a hassle. It takes several tries in order to get ahead because so many blocks have been put into it. And I refuse to pay money to play this game. I took the app off for a whole year. And right now it is going again. I guess you builders can never learn a lesson and not be so greedy. The five stars was to get your attention only. This game I can’t even give it a one star. Well good luck everyone else but mine is gone.
Love the game...
by cant believe Nickname is taken on 2021/02/13 03:38
But, won’t play which witch ever again. Totally rigged! I NEVER win regardless who I choose. Total waste of time! What is the point of the Common Reel? At first I may have gotten some rewards, but now nothing!
No other game like it!!!!
by redravensky on 2021/02/12 07:42
There’s no other game like this one not just the gameplay but the graphics the storytelling the past memories of childhood gone past thank you for all the hours of gameplay thank you for the hours you gave me and more to come thank you!

Very sad
by summerwinds64 on 2021/02/11 21:06
I am really disappointed in how this game has gotten so bad. You don’t get your free lives once you claim them. If you contact them they put the problem and blame on you. Very disappointed right now with the creators of this game.
Stuck on a level
by leftNJ on 2021/02/10 23:54
I love this game but I have reached 1152 and I cannot get through it. I have figured out how to get rid of more squares but it doesn’t always work. Is this as far as I can go? NOT happy!!!!!
Ok so far
by Buckmonk on 2021/02/10 17:41
Fun game but I’m sure some levels will be impossible to win without some bonus helps

Scam
by rolltidebobbyj on 2021/02/09 05:44
Just like 100 other games. Fun for a bit then it gets impossible without basically buying your way through it. Better off with candy crush. Don’t waste money or time on this!
Love this game

I have been playing this game for years and Ijust can’t get enough of it! If you have seen the movie, you will definitely love this game. The characters and the sounds effect just like the movie. I simply love it!!!!

I have been playing this game for years and had written with problems with the game . Recently the game is awful I keep playing daily and it change my rank and points daily and it’s not adding the points every time I watched a commercial. Very frustrated and I am about to delete it. Just today, February 8, 2021 was rank 22 with 1377 points and when kept playing got me down with a different rank and very low points. Something is wrong with the data of this game

Slowly taking away ways to earn coins and level up
by Axel602 on 2021/02/05 16:47
I’m growing frustrated with the changes they are making. I’m on level 943 and I haven’t been able to pass it, which isn’t my complaint. First they’ve removed the boost ability so the Oz tickets are of no help. Then they removed the ads for free coins feature. Now they removed the feature where you can earn extra coins for stars after games in tournaments. I love the game but I am disappointed in these changes.

by tyrgy11 on 2021/02/03 00:21
I love this game but when you play to win something and then to collect it you have to pay for it. Nope And watch videos ok but when they offer 20 or 40 gems you never get them. They said wait it will pop up Anahi Nope they never do. Now it won’t let me post

Level 2871
by Colton T. on 2021/01/30 03:34
I really like this game except the level 2871 is really really hard I constantly keep dying. Especially no funds to get those things on the game like magic ball, line cutter etc etc
Watch your game rip you off
by :) yeah .,?! on 2021/01/30 00:36
This is the biggest rip off! They give you your earned power ups only to take them away immediately.. they strategically place them and then they’re gone before your first move it’s awful then u if u make a butterfly like they want u to when u use it it goes to something already checked off ie. U need one red cube u make a butterfly u release it and it goes to the blue that u already got all?! There is so many things too many to list in game that is just not worth it! Beware! Also they have you connect to a social media and u can ask for help for lives however they won’t let you connect to people u r sitting next to for and extra life in all the years playing I’ve ever received an extra life or been able to play with my kids or hubby they literally pick off ur social media and show u a small list of same people that have said they sent a life however Idk where it went?! Anyway watch ur screen they will blow up the screen make it look like ur getting far with the craziness but if u watch what u have left to get nothing moves! It’s so bad also strange but the first go round with a lvl u almost wet it then next try u don’t even come close then a few times more and u will all the sudden beat it with like 20+ moves left?! Just not worth it! And now they make it so u win but not win I’ll add my attachment!
Disappointed in new pay-to-play “seasons” feature
by PRD1234 on 2021/01/29 03:37
I have played this game every day for almost three years. The graphics and themes are wonderful. The levels are challenging without being impossible. New levels and features kept the game fresh. The options for in-app purchases was always there if you wanted to advance a bit more quickly (which I sometimes did) however if you wanted to just be persistent and play harder to advance you could still compete in the game. But this month the developers decided to change the playing field and make it necessary to pay a monthly fee (season pass). Oh you can still play without a season pass if you can’t pay the $5 a month but you don’t get any where! So after 3 years of daily play, I am saying goodbye. It’s just not fun anymore now that the playing field is no longer level. Too bad they couldn’t offer 2 versions- one for those who don’t mind paying a monthly subscription and another for those who can only afford the occasional in-app purchase.
Beware if spending real money!
by Valentine girl77777 on 2021/01/29 00:16
I’ve been playing this game s long time, it’s a fun game, but every time I spend real money in this app I always get screwed somehow and when I contact customer service they just blow me off and act like I’m an idiot and that I’m confused on what’s happening!! They say if you purchase anything take before and after screenshots so you can prove any wrong doing (which is impossible most of the time because if you leave the game to take those screen shots you loose your progress!!) These issues have happened many times, I’m done spending real money, and may just delete this app, there’s plenty other games out there!!
Best Game Ever !!!
by GeorgiegirlRN on 2021/01/28 04:49
Level 3228 !!! I love this game !!! Recently I have introduced this game to many of my Covid patients. Most are in a room by themselves with no visitors for up to two weeks some even longer. I love walking into their room and hearing them singing along or seeing them excited about beating another level. Thank You for such a wonderful game.

During a tile match against the witch,game froze as I was about to win and made me start over the level to lose!
Awesome game!!! But....
by princesscaddie on 2021/01/23 02:59
Really enjoy this game but I had to stop playing because to continue on I had to buy coins ~and it’s amazing when you stop buying you dip quickly in ranks which is unfair and I’m pretty high on the levels too
Disappointing
by JoanCarol on 2021/01/19 19:32
Jan 2021 I’m so glad I received a response from the developer. NOW, IF I COULD FIND IT, THAT WOULD BE JUST WONDERFUL. After scrolling down several hundred reviews, I could not find it! On certain levels, you might have 5 moves left yet there us no way to go. The hint moves so you can see where to go, but you cannot because there are no 3 of the same colors together. What a waste if you can't move on. Deleting! I deleted, but RALPHIEGIRL, WHY did you give it FOUR stars if you didn’t like it?

Review
by everglowgirl on 2021/01/08 14:17
Hate the way they took away the option to buy stuff with your earned tickets to help you in the game. I have been playing for a while and some levels take forever to win. You use to give more options for +3 moves for watching adds. Glinda’s manic use to come up more often. Not everyone can pay for power ups. Need more options to watch ads for power ups.
This game used to be fun.
by Wiz of Oz player 1234 on 2021/01/08 03:20
I’m currently on level 3031, so yeah, I’ve played this game a lot and for a very long time. I wrote a review recently but must’ve got overlooked or deleted. In recent times I’ve experienced “glitches” I guess. Rewards for getting the same item/colors in a row, such as 5 to get a crystal ball. Many times after lining up the items in the game, my reward I would’ve won just “disappears”. Also have had many times where the “it’s a twister” action goes into effect, at a time when either I still had moves, and it’s done that to me when I was all set to win the level. This game cheats. Also used to be able to earn gold coins, multiple crystal balls, on a regular basis. Haven’t been able to earn those in the last couple of years. I’ve written the makers of the game and of course no response. I’m ready to quit the game and delete the app. As I stated in my title, this game used to be fun. Now it’s not even fun anymore. The levels are too hard and they arbitrarily give you not enough moves to defeat levels. Seems like they just want you to spend money on “prize packages” that include coins and stuff so you can win levels a little bit easier. Well sorry Wizard of Oz, I’m not gonna give you any of my money. I’m not a sucker. I’m over this game and like I said, ready to delete the app. And I hope LOTS of people read this.
Total rip off!
by Danalous on 2021/01/08 00:30
At first relaxing fun game then bam!! All they want is money to keep playing. Absolutely ridiculous $9.99 for boosters! Do yourselves a favor stay away from the frustration and greediness!
Wizard of oz match 3
by scal1006 on 2021/01/07 13:17
I am only giving a 3 star because I was in legends, level 250+, and top in leaderboard. I purchased a new iPad, loaded the game up, connected to Facebook, and when I opened it, I was back 1000 levels! I lost all my progress! I did contact support, and they did nothing!
Ripped off
by Summermead on 2021/01/07 11:32
I have played for years in this game, I but tokens to help. I have bought tokens tonight to help win a level and the game froze so I play AGAIN the same level and it freezes again just as I was going to win THAT level again. No more!, I quit!!

Good but
by AuraMax on 2020/12/24 23:46
Awesome game, creative, but holy cow.... WAY too many pop ups. I have to click the X on 5 windows before I can even play. Just information about the game etc. but still 5 star because it’s a brilliantly made game. Would just prefer a little notification box I can optionally choose to view or not.
Needing to update the Story book
by T. Dixon73 on 2020/12/24 19:28
The Oz Story book needs to be updated with more books. Coming soon has been there for a while now. This portion of the game helps us level up from time to time.

One of the better games
by daveinbr on 2020/12/20 14:49
I’ve been playing for a couple years, and I’m up around level 1500. I’ve never had to pay for anything. The ads are minimal. And it’s pretty fun for a match game.
Best advice, don’t walk, run away from this game!
by Bizirk on 2020/12/19 13:56
I just deleted this game after several years of playing on2 different phones. It’s addicting alright— but this company wants one thing; into your wallet. If you don’t let them, they make it impossible to move ahead. Believe the reviewers before me who did let them into their wallet. You can see how Zynga punishes you if you don’t pay them in spite of the non-stop ads you’re forced to watch. 2 things I feel good about right now is deleting this game (level 2300) and the fact no matter what, I refused to let them into my wallet. It’s greedy companies like this that I will never take their bait. You shouldn’t either. Best thing you could do is don’t even download. There’s plenty of good companies that are not this way. I’m not opposed to paying, I’m opposed to greed. If I enjoy a game that doesn’t work this way, it’s an honor to see them benefit a bit more than the ad revenue. Sometimes there are creators who do deserve a boost. But actually dealing with non-stop ads should be enough in itself. I also can’t understand running out of lives. Do you really think you’re so addicting anyone in their right mind would pay to keep playing? All you’re doing is costing yourself ad revenue. You should be ashamed Zynga. Also know you have several glitches. I don’t FB at all, so you haven’t heard from me on the matter before. Btw, I’ve won the match only 3 times in 2300 level on this phone. (You must watch every ad and then some!) For what? A few booster power ups that this company intends to take back almost immediately after winning them if you intend to advance. My only regret is not deleting this game much sooner. It’s been obvious for sometime their intentional grift. I will give 2 stars for the game format. It is cute but even in that, it ticks me off they’re using the magic of Oz to rip people off.
Cheat
by Tronniepooh on 2020/12/18 07:51
I really liked this game until I was ready to win my board had one more bug to get but they never gave me any more bugs in 8 moves. That really blew me.

Very good game very addictive if you like matching 3 or 4 of same blocks.And to hear Dorothy saying words after you made a big score pretty cool

by Jfa59$ on 2020/12/16 12:50
Played for a long time, as you progress the games get much harder. I’m on the same level for days, even the ‘not hard’ games. I just want to do this to decompress, I will be leaving this one now.

I think this started after I did the last update. I can’t play the game. If I get into it. It closes. But mostly while loading it closes. It’s getting old. I now will lose my currant standing Along with the daily goodies. Please fix this for the IPad. My IPhone doesn’t have this problem.
Not much fun anymore
by mooslows on 2020/12/07 07:33
This game used to be fun. Levels are super hard to win now. No offers to watch ads for 3 free plays. It gets boring after you play a level 20 to 50 times.
Only game I haven’t quit
by chickLeigh on 2020/12/05 16:04
I normally get frustrated and quit games. This game is a great balance of being challenging and still fun! Lots of free ways to earn power-ups! You do however need to open new sets or a way to trade tickets for power ups or lives. I’ve collected all sets so tickets are worthless! Love this game just needs some updates!!
Very expensive game to play!
by nanci2121 on 2020/12/05 08:40
When I initially started playing this game, they gave you a lot of different incentives to build up your tools, so that you could actually win the game. Now, it seems like every game, you have to spend money just to win that game. I also noticed that after you spend the money, you win almost instantly. Like within the next move you win, so they are somehow setting their algorithms do you make it so you have to spend some thing to win the game. Trust me it was not like this in the beginning, it was fun it was relaxing, you got a chance build up your tools to help you win further. Now to me, it’s all money, money, money. I get it, this is how they make money on the game, however any other game I play give you incentives so that you don’t have to continually spend money to get to your next goal. It’s very sad to me, because I truly love this game. With the economy the way it is, with the country in the shape that it’s in, you would think that there would be some sort of eagerness to help people continue playing. All that being said, the game is beautifully put together the music is wonderful, and it CAN be a lot of fun.
Meh
by logflogger on 2020/12/02 02:38
It’s a really fun game at first. I’ve been playing for a few years. I’ve gotten so far up in levels that it’s virtually impossible to beat without purchasing power ups. It’s become redundant and bleh. Honestly thinking about uninstalling because I’ve been stuck forever and I’ve grown bored and rarely play now.

The app exceeds the size of the viewable area on the iPhone 12 Pro. Very annoying, please correct this bug. Thanks.

There is a mistake on number 1904...the witch leaves the game early before she reaches the edge...then you cannot win!

Well got so far and now can’t go no further I have enjoyed playing was looking forward to see it to the e d but now I won’t get to hope u fix all the problems with this game because I know a lot of people enjoy playing this game
No Coins
by Supermom501 on 2020/11/29 21:37
I haven’t received any coins in 3 weeks so that is why I don’t play as much as I use to.
Trading in butterflies
by Ribbett99 on 2020/11/29 21:01
I had almost 400 butterflies left when they were about expire earlier today and couldn’t because nothing nothing left for the amount I had . So in fact I lost almost 400 butterflies. Lol a big rip off. But yet I had to watch all the advertising wasting my time to not get to use my “rewards”.
Wizard of Oz match 3
by Kathy Fallon on 2020/11/29 05:19
Your games is frozen!!! Cannot play When can I play? Are you fixing it? Tor game is still frozen since last night 11-20-2000 11-21-2020. The game is still frozen!!! 11-22-2020.

Glitches
by Jossy's Nana on 2020/11/29 00:55
I would give this game five stars because it could be fun but the glitches are ridiculous.
They Don’t Care!
by VegasNel on 2020/11/28 04:20
Wrote them too many times because of the bugs in the games. The game constantly locks up requiring you close out and start over. Then they change the game to play ONLY in the portrait view and the annoying ads are upside side down. They could care less , if I was a company paying for ads I would be upset. When you contact them they always have a lame excuse. If you don’t purchase their offers to play they control your wins, remember it is a computer game and they can control wins, so when you DON’T BUY YOU WONT WIN! I have a 4 Month old iPad Air 2 and recently checked by Apple to see if something was wrong with my iPad because of the game lock ups, after Apple checkied the game on my IPad I was told by Apple their games have errors. I advise you If you decide to play just don’t buy any packages!

I’ve been playing for a couple of years and like it a lot A couple of things are really upsetting. What happened to boosting with tickets?!? I keep getting tickets, but they no longer seem useful, as if you’re just trying to make us join with Facebook. Also, in the Glinda vs Witch game, it feels like you’re cheating. When I play with Glinda, the witch almost always wins. If I switch and play the witch, then Glinda almost always wins. Is it rigged? In the side games, the first few are easy and fun, and then suddenly they get nearly impossible, as if you really wAnt to force us to buy assets. Maybe a more gradual difficulty wouldn’t feel that way. Otherwise, the game is fun and truly beautiful. Head and shoulders above other games. NEW complaint: all of a sudden, in the Glinda-Witch battles, you get no points while working back up to where you were stumped. This makes the replay boring and pointless (pun intended). Changes aren’t always for the better. Still fun, but starting to lose interest. Emerald boosts no longer possible using tickets-worst change so far. This is the third time I have sent this review. WHAT IS WITH the TICKETS!!!!!??? A good addition would be letting the player carry over specials like crystal balls particularly on the ones with multiple windows that slide. A nice reward for getting the special in the first window. Some are just too hard to be fun.
Very fun...
by Seabed7 on 2020/11/25 00:37
This is the first game other then slots I have enjoyed. Yes it has a personality, yes the progressive levels are difficult but, it can be beat just slow down. I have a lot fun doing this...Another twenty levels down the road...playing this thing is akin to being addicted. Here I am months later I am at Level 2636... still having fun with it. 2,711 and still cruising along...
Wicked always win?
by Mama nova on 2020/11/22 18:52
When you play Glinda against the Wicked Witch, the Wicked Witch always wins now! That wasn’t the way it used to be. Call me what ever you want to but I refuse to play the bad guy! I know it is only a game but that is me!
Ripped off
by na2955 on 2020/11/22 15:37
I buy a package and don’t receive it ! Be aware of scam on this game u sure as heck get charged !
Ripped off too!
by lomn time player on 2020/11/22 12:35
I just paid for a 9.99 bundle to keep playing to finally win a hard level, and the money was deducted from my apple account but I never received credit for the bundle! What a rip off!
Rip off!!!
by CuteGame on 2019/11/23 23:45
I have played years on this game. In all the games I play online, not once have I Ever written a review. However, I can't deal with being ripped off after I've paid to play the game further! I only had 2 more things I needed to win, so I spent the $4.99, only to have it close the game unless I paid again. So, I thought ok, I'll let that slide & go ahead & buy the $2.99 to continue playing. Nope, it closed again as if ready to start a fresh new game unless I paid more to continue. I know I shouldn't have, but I paid the $2.99 one more time thinking surely it would take it & let the game continue on. Btw, this is not the 1st time this game has done this to me. I wrote the company several yrs. back, about getting a refund on the time before, but never heard one word back from them. I love this game, & most people might have quit after it did this to them twice. I never would have considered it, but after this time, I feel they are totally ripping people off. I'm not one to spend a lot of money on a game, mainly because I don't make that much. So when I do spend it, it's on things I enjoy, like this game. However, I don't like to be taken advantage of. I try to be a nice person with a kind & loving heart to people. So, that's why I warn you to just be careful on spending your hard earned money on this game. Hopefully, it won't take your money like it did mine. I wish all of you the best of luck. -- L. in Tx.
Great game but needs fixed!
by BlasterMaster6110 on 2020/05/15 13:01
I do love this game. It’s almost the only game I ever play. I’ve been playing for over 3 years now and of course it’s got glitches and issues sometimes, but when I’m paying for things on this game, I don’t expect or appreciate being closed out of the game right before receiving my awards and advancements. Also, when you make a bonus match during a tile game with the wicked witch, you’re suppose to continue with your turn until you can no longer make a bonus match. Why is the witch taking my turns when I’m about to win?? I do not understand that. It clearly says “bonus - keep going” but instead of letting me take my next turn, the witch proceeds to take it from me. I’ve had the game long enough to know this should not be happening so please fix this issue. It’s rather annoying and if it doesn’t change soon, I’ll no longer make purchase (and I make plenty) and I’ll just delete the game and spend my money on a better designed game. I’m currently on level 3,120 and 522 in the Legends Division. I’d hate to lose all I’ve built up over the last few years but I won’t continue to pay money to a game that’s cheating me out of it. Thank you!

Finicky love affair with this game...
by Ralphie Girl on 2019/07/09 03:39
When I first started playing I was blown away by the graphics, the bonuses, the tidbits and absolutely loved everything about this game. Being the “rabid Oz fan” that I am I knew this game could either be fabulous or a flop. Once I got deep into the game I wasn’t as enthusiastic, as with any game it seemed you had to pay to play, then the whole thing crashed so I didn’t play for quite some time. Everything got repaired and it was fun again...until the developers decided to try a “reboot” and everything became too cost prohibitive...so, thankfully, they changed back to the old format. Now, it seems there are bugs again and I may quit playing altogether! For a month now I’ve tapped on the bonuses and sat through a 30 second ad only to get shafted and not receive anything! After reaching top tier and doing everything I’m supposed to, I get demoted 3 levels within days! Boo-hiss developers! AND, when I indulged and paid for a $5.99 package I was charged DOUBLE! Noooo, bad game! Bad! I’ve gone over some bank records and it seems this has happened a few times! Again, boo-hiss developers!
Game is becoming a ripoff
by rrh269 on 2020/07/12 02:55
I’ve been playing this game for several years now. I’ve spent a lot of money on it too. I’ve noticed what others have been saying. The game is starting to get greedy. They used to give nice rewards, a crystal ball, at every an ax, but now it’s mostly lives, which I don’t need. What really frustrates me is the magic butterflies. They used to click on the things you still needed to collect when you created one. That was kind of the point I think. And if you got into a spot where you had to pay to continue, they would always help. Well not anymore. It seems like they have been reprogrammed to not help you at all because say you have 2 turns left and just need 2 items. And lucky you, you have w butterflies you can tap and use. Well, the butterflies now won’t tap on the 2 items you need, they go to another part of the board and collect something you don’t need. Also, I’ve encountered some hard levels that are so hard, you will have to pay to keep going forward. Until recently that usually worked. I just however spent $4.99 + $2.99 + $2.99 thinking surely I’ll be able to get the last 2 pieces! Nope. $11 later and I still needed the same 2 pieces. I deleted the game. I’ve recently lost my job due to COVID, so I’m choosing where to spend my money, and spending it on an unfair game isn’t happening any longer from me. It’s sad because I really really like this game.
Bring back the goodies
by Retrocats on 2018/02/01 02:15
If you love wizard of oz this is a good companion to the slots game. This game had (past tense) a charm because they gave rewards on completion of tasks,levels. You may get an ax, a clear row, magic butterflies and the random unlimited life for couple hours. The useful rewards were nice because most of us play these games when we have a down period. Giving us unlimited lives for couple hours does us no good. Well...that’s about all they give away now. The little beneficial goodies are far and few between. And I have to second the complaints of crashing and freezing. It seems to occur exactly when you have made the move that wins the level. Frustrating if you did go ahead and spend the extra coins for additional moves. And to date ...no help from customer service. Only crickets. So why do I keep loading the game and playing??? Because when I’m waiting in the car for my sonic order it’s a nice way to zone out and hear the sounds of Oz.
Watch your game rip you off
by :) yeah .,?! on 2021/01/30 00:36
This is the biggest rip off! They give you your earned power ups only to take them away immediately.. they strategically place them and then they’re gone before your first move it’s awful then u if u make a butterfly like they want u to when u use it it goes to something already checked off ie. U need one red cube u make a butterfly u release it and it goes to the blue that u already got all?! There is so many things too many to list in game that is just not worth it! Beware! Also they have you connect to a social media and u can ask for help for lives however they won’t let you connect to people u r sitting next to for and extra life in all the years playing I’ve ever received an extra life or been able to play with my kids or hubby they literally pick off ur social media and show u a small list of same people that have said they sent a life however Idk where it went?! Anyway watch ur screen they will blow up the screen make it look like ur getting far with the craziness but if u watch what u have left to get nothing moves! It’s so bad also strange but the first go round with a lvl u almost wet it then next try u don’t even come close then a few times more and u will all the sudden beat it with like 20+ moves left?! Just not worth it! And now they make it so u win but not win I’ll add my attachment!
So very annoying.
by Jeano5150 on 2019/03/12 02:07
New Review: Now with the latest update the game can only be played in portrait mode. This is a deal breaker for me, and I definitely won't be playing it unless this is changed. Several of my friends have said they will delete the app if forced to play in portrait mode. This was a bad decision ~ or is it just poor coding? ........................................... This game could be a lot of fun. The graphics are fantastic, and the theme is very charming. But it really only works well if you have a very current device. If you have an older device, expect frequent freezing and unpredictable functionality. Also, like most games developed by this company, it is very highly monetized. As you progress to higher levels you need to use more and more "boosts" in order to pass the levels ~ and the daily bonuses are extremely stingy. Most annoying is one of their bugs. Namely, quite often he gifts sent to you by your friends simply disappear. I just had around 25 lives vanish. As I said, the game is very appealing, but even with that in mind I cannot recommend this game unless you are lucky enough to have a large balance in your iTunes account and you don't mind spending it on games instead of books, music and movies.
Fix the Game
by ImShe93 on 2020/07/17 14:31
I absolutely love this game! I solely play it to compete with the leader boards! I don’t understand how I can get up to nine lives and still be at the bottom of the totem pole. I understand that there is a win lose ratio but how is it even possible to lose one level for 12 hours? While sitting patiently waiting for more lives. Why are the butterflies no longer in my favor? What are the tickets good for now that story is complete. I have played the game for years and would hate to let it go! This used to be my go to game since I had to let candy crush go due to the same issues! One would think y’all would prefer more downloads that actually get played! Guess not! After making it to levels 3256 and 974 I would hope you want me to continue to play, sadly i hate being constantly cheated I stopped spending as much money because if you do it loosely the game becomes extremely hard and impossible to win without spending money. I connected to Facebook and only can see one friend luckily I can receive the life without signing in every single time! I love the game so much that I’ll give time to fix these bugs while finding a great replacement.
Fix this please!
by Necospargur on 2020/06/12 08:46
I LOVE this game! However, every time I complete a level and get to the ad there’s a problem. The ad plays, I hit the “x” and the screen goes black! The only way for me to get back to the game is to close the app entirely and open it up again. This is so annoying! I found a loophole when I receive a reel by clicking “gallery” which then allows me to exit out that way but you don’t win a reel every time. Like I said, I love this game, the graphics the reels with all the fun facts and the objectives but having it black out on me and having to go through all the closing and reopening every time is getting quite old. I’ve wanted to suggest this game to some fam & friends but I won’t be doing that until the issue is fixed. It can’t be that difficult, can it? Thank you for your time in addressing this! With what the world is going through right now this is quite minuscule but this is how I de stress only for it to cause frustration. RIP George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and so so many more people that were killed I’m such horrific ways by the men and woman that are suppose to be keeping us safe. This has got to stop!
Terrible update
by Marzy 2 on 2018/11/01 23:31
Just did an update to my game which you know every time you turn around there’s a update, right after the update I couldn’t even get in the game I had a window that kept popping up saying thank you for updating please restart the game so I’d hit restart oh I can’t restart because you’re not connected to Facebook but I couldn’t connect Facebook because the stupid pop up window kept popping up going restart restart couldn’t send a message to customer service either I’ve been playing this game for over a year I was on level 300 and something I maybe was 100 and something but I was up there and I had to delete the game, shut my iPad off completely an hour uploaded the game again and now I just get the screen that says Wizard of Oz magic match, frozen screen, It would be great if I could get back to play my game how bout fixing it people!!!
Lvl 1157
by Greenshadow73 on 2018/11/26 14:44
I’ve been an avid player of this game but am getting frustrated with items that I feel are supposed to help me but never do! I create butterflies to clear a hard to reach tile but instead it picks off a colored tile that I can get anytime. When the lion comes out after falling to the bottom, he removes tiles that aren’t as relevant as others are. It just really feels like the developers don’t want me to advance in this game and I’m not sure why? More often than not, my specials don’t help me out and instead do something irrelevant to my progress or some levels are just impossible to complete without using lives which in turn puts me in a position to buy way too much when I have items that should help me but don’t. And why am I given so much infinite time (like five hours the other day) but I lose it all if I can’t play five hours straight? Why doesn’t the time stop when I close the game or allow me to save those to use at my convenience? These things really need to be addressed or this games popularity will surely decline, which is too bad because I’ve really enjoyed it!
The game is addictive but take caution...player support is horrible!
by Trese0701 on 2017/09/27 11:20
The game is fun, the graphics and sounds nice. However, take caution, especially if you buy power ups or additional lives or even if you win them. I’ve had multiple technical issues with this game. Game freezes, crashes, etc. I’ve lost lives, power ups/lives and competitions because of multiple issues. Every time I’ve contacted customer support outlining the problem AND providing information such as “I have strong wifi; I’m connected to facebook; the device I’m playing on” — they suggest over and over again that I check my wifi, insure I’m connected to facebook, etc...then send me links to help out with those issues I previously stated were not the issue. I don’t know if they don’t want to take responsibility for reimbursement or replacing lost stuff; if they don’t understand what I’ve written; or they don’t have the skills to help. If nothing else, one would think they’d want to work with the customer to resolve these issues. Currently game play erratically begins to move in “slow motion”. I wrote to them about this issue...I wonder what their response will be? Tongue in cheek....😖
Game is locking... losing money
by player issues on 2020/07/03 01:13
My game is locking. I see the screen to play put when I touch the screen ....... Nothing. I have to turn off my iPad lose a life to reset. At level 635 this game has gotten finicky, sticky and not fun to play...at times this game is frustrating when you know you can never get rid of the items totaling 400 pieces in 30 moves unless you spend money. I know it’s always about the money.. I put this game down 4 years ago... and I thought things would be different I’ve spent a couple of hundred dollars and I’ve wised up... I’m done. I like the alleged competition you’ve made me think I am having with others... but in actuality I could have paid my way to first place... not rocket science. I’m like an autistic.... I like watching the game pieces fall and explode... but other than that it does not take away my frustration... but you ask...why do I keep coming back... I ask myself that same question - time to find another game. With over 1000 levels maybe you can bring more winning of free stuff to the game. Unless you are making enough money the way it is. Understandable
Harder than it needs to be
by fwitzie on 2019/08/18 15:15
This is a very fun game and I have enjoyed it very much until I have reached level 307 which I cannot get past it just keeps letting the witch win no matter what I do I don’t feel a game she have to be so hard that it takes all the fun out of it which is what this does now I’m beside myself I’m going back and redoing all the boards that I was able to pass before . I don’t know what to do please really can’t you change this up a bit games are supposed to be fun not make you aggravated and miserable the graphics are so cute so colorful so happy I still don’t understand completely how to play the game because there’s not directions anywhere really I want to get past level 307 without having to buy something with real money what is the trick??? The lifeline feature hasn’t worked at all on this board either. I keep telling ZYNGA about this but still nothing. I know they want you to spend $$. But I know someone who completed this whole game & didn’t pay a cent. COME ON ZYNGA. FIX THIS ANNOYING GLITCH ALREADY OR IM GONE.
Not getting any help from support and unable to move from level 615 and on to next chapter
by AidenKalin1121 on 2017/11/24 16:48
I have had similar issues to other people who have posted here. I have been double billed multiple times, their response was i must not remember and they add the times up on one bill to present. However the ones i showed i was charged within seconds of the first purchase. The latest issues are glitches when you try to use power ups and the games taking the power up and giving you no credit. Very slow on getting the release of colored blocks. But that is no where as bad as the issue i have now where i can’t move on. I have completed level 615 and i am not able to load new content. It shows me the download new content, it starts to attempt, then flashes and nothing ever happens. I can only go back and play other levels. Guess my time with this game is done. Will not support the company as i have received little to no help when emailing. All i was told was to force close app. Done and done times 10. Have latest version and restarted my phone several times. May not work with Apple IOS system so beware before you start buying anything from this company.
Disappointed with the updates
by Sorceress531 on 2019/09/13 02:29
Yesterday (5/7/19) I noticed the daily gold was missing from the game. So, I uninstalled and reinstalled the game, hoping it would refresh and be available. First disappointment, seeing the game could only be played in portrait mode. I have my IPad attached to a keyboard case, making it difficult to play in portrait mode. Secondly, I see that the 3 golds we received daily is no longer available. I contacted support, and the support person didn’t appear to understand what I was talking about. After many back and forth emails, she asked me where these gold coins appeared. I took a screenshot, and edited it to show her. She insisted I was talking about the Watch Now lives. I wrote back and explained further, noting that it wasn’t the Watch Now for the 3 additional moves. I have even seen that gold is received daily once you are connected to facebook. As it seems now, if you need gold to do anything, it has to be purchased. I’ve reached level 2316, so I know for a fact we got the 3 golds everyday. If this isn’t corrected, Zynga will probably be losing quite a few users.
Still needs work
by Hogie Dogie on 2018/02/23 04:53
Update: Level 1268 ...... Butterflies are absolutely worthless. They don’t complete their attack. Having an awful time getting past this level, & this time I refuse to spend more money that I don’t have ! Can you please fix this? 😖😖😖 Hi again, I did the update as suggested & now I am NOT getting the heart or the box with all the goodies. PLEASE FIX THIS. Thanks At first the game is entertaining, but the further up you go in levels, the fun starts to turn into frustration. For example: Not enough moves in order to finish a level When the scare crow makes his entrance, if there are MORE than 1 leaving the board, it only computes as one. At one point I had 3 leaving at the same time. I got jipped out of 2. The same if 2 leave the board at once, it only gives you the credit for 1. I realize the game is programmed to make money, but even when spending coins, it's still not enough to finish the level....eh? There should be coins given at the completion of each level. Even if it's just 2 or 3. That way, it gives an incentive to continue on, even if a level needs repeating several times to finish. At first, we can get another life by watching an advert. But those get far & few in between as well. Also, there are times when a level eats up more moves than it should. The wait time for accumulating more lives is too long. Hey techs, fix these issues, & this game will be spot on! Thanks.
Very expensive game to play!

All that being said, the game is beautifully put together the music is wonderful, and it CAN be a lot of fun.
It was fun while it lasted.

I’ve been playing this game for a couple years and think I’ve come to the end of the yellow brick road! As with most online games you end making purchases if you want to keep moving up, I won’t even mention how much I’ve spent on this game, just say maybe too much. So now as I’ve reached Level 2655 there are no more levels available. I have two choices, play Land of Oz Legends or Glinda verses the Wicked Witch. Unfortunately it has become nearly impossible to keep advancing to next levels so I end up repeating the same games, thus the game has become boring now and I’m losing interest. I’ve managed to make it to a Master player, however I don’t see much incentive to maintain it, as there is no way I’m putting more money into conquering these near impossible levels. Plus the game has made changes where the tickets you earn have become useless as there is no longer options to use them on anything. I don’t know if the developers are planning more on creating more levels beyond 2655, but if they don’t, I’m afraid I may need to find a new game. Let’s see.
Please fix issues
by HodiJuan on 2020/09/03 13:57
I, like so many others LOVE this game and play it daily. However, I can’t even play the game. If I click on the add to get the free stuff, my screen goes black and the only option I have is to close out the app and start back up. So annoying. And now, today, I can’t even play at all. Even ignoring the ads, if I start playing, I can’t even play a complete life before the app crashes & closes, causing me to lose that life. Please fix. Also, I am equally frustrated as the others about how the game no longer gives hardly any rewards for play at all. ie., axes, butterflies, etc And when I go through the effort to create a butterfly, it’s not even on “my side”. It doesn’t even help me anymore. It’s almost a waste of time to create it. Please consider going back to like it was before. You don’t have to give excessive rewards for play, I get it, you want to make money, but you could go back to at least giving SOME rewards for play.
Labor of Love
by theBogman on 2018/02/08 20:36
There are dozens of "match three" type games for your phone, but this one is a cut above. It's evident that for several people on the development team, this must have been a true labor of love. The affection and attention to detail lavished upon this game honors not only the classic movie, but the generations of fans for whom "The Wizard of Oz" is beloved, almost sacred. The paintings are exceptional-- lovingly capturing not only the likenesses of all the characters (even minor parts), but the light, rich technicolor beauty of Oz. The producers make wonderful use of the soundtrack from the movie, featuring all the right themes in the right places. There are also audio clips of the actors and a treasure trove of bonus trivia material you can unlock along your way to The Emerald City. Kudos to everyone who worked on this game. If you are half the fan of "The Wizard of Oz" that they seem to be, you will definitely love this game.
Game used to be fun but no longer!
by MydogBanjo on 2019/09/17 21:22
I have been playing this game for a few years and enjoyed beating levels and receiving my daily goodies. I don't have Facebook so I'm not sure what is missing from that end. Every time there is an update it seems to get worse. Now I can't even use my 2000 tickets for anything except to buy "moments" who cares about them? I used them in the past to boost my score when winning a level. It's very difficult to get gold as where you used to get three a day for watching a dopey video- no longer available maybe one or two if it's a lucky day. The game freezes and kicks you out which is annoying to say the least, but when you spend 9 coins and win the level and it boots you it's extremely irritating! I have deleted this game three or more times and don't know why I'm such a pathetic sucker to reinstall it, I guess I'm hoping things will go back to how they used to be. Portrait mode stinks and the weekly promotion or demotion stink as well, please listen to your players and revert back to how it used to be!
Disappointed in new pay-to-play “seasons” feature
by PRD1234 on 2021/01/29 03:37
I have played this game every day for almost three years. The graphics and themes are wonderful. The levels are challenging without being impossible. New levels and features kept the game fresh. The options for in-app purchases was always there if you wanted to advance a bit more quickly (which I sometimes did) however if you wanted to just be persistent and play harder to advance you could still compete in the game. But this month the developers decided to change the playing field and make it necessary to pay a monthly fee (season pass). Oh you can still play without a season pass if you can’t pay the $5 a month but you don’t get any where! So after 3 years of daily play, I am saying goodbye. It’s just not fun anymore now that the playing field is no longer level. Too bad they couldn’t offer 2 versions- one for those who don’t mind paying a monthly subscription and another for those who can only afford the occasional in-app purchase.
Happy notes
by judymassage on 2019/09/10 04:54
I have been playing this game for over 2 years just about when it came out. I found it after a big life change that had made me very sad. Then as I played it the music started to make me happy again. The music is so close to the movie that you feel like you are apart of the movie. You are helping Dorothy scarecrow lion tin man and Toto get back to Kansas. The graphics are smooth and amazing. 5 stars for sure But. Be patient some levels are very hard. But the game will give you a break after a while I am now on level 1854 Level 1850 took me 2 weeks until the algorithms set up so I could win and move on to the next level. My position went from 2nd to 26 out of 29. It’s all in the designers purpose The algorithms Ya. It gets very frustrating and I stop playing for 10-40 days sometimes. Why play a “game” that is ridiculously programmed I feel frustrated So I take long breaks some times I delete the app and make room for other games or read books and do things with my friends and family then when I come back the algorithms see how long I’ve been gone and they set it up for me to win Oh. Ya. Designers, how much longer until you being back the 3 gold a day after watching a video for each gold?
Rip Off!!
by Mdeleo01 on 2020/08/14 17:57
The latest scam is the one that caused me to delete the game forever. I’ve spent hundreds of dollars. I’ve been a loyal player. I was on level 1735. But your sneaky “open the piggy bank at 75 coins” scam pushed me over the edge. The game advertised you could open and earn 75 coins when your piggy bank reached this level (within a limited period of time). So OF COURSE I spent money and pushed through to achieve this. And guess what happens when you get to 75 coins? You can only open it if you pay $6.99!!! What? Ever heard of bait and switch? Misleading or false advertising? Sharp practice? I am DONE. Friends, AVOID this game. They well and truly only want your money. They have officially become as bad and greedy as Candy Crush. I used to play this game because it was actually playable and not Candy Crush-a game where you could only advance by buying add ins. Because of the high playability, I did spend real money. But of course over time the (free) playability has gone down and the prices have gone up. I’m done. Shame on you developers for this latest misleading scam!
If you don't pay then you face a rigged game
by Stoliman on 2019/02/15 17:02
I don't understand these supposedly free games.... Sure they are free but the more you play it without any "in app purchases" then the more you'll see the game is rigged. I mean really how many times can one get within one play of clearing the board... Especially if you have many moves and are getting close to finishing a level. Take notice of just how "random" the pieces fall. You will see that the more moves you have left and are close to completing a level that these random pieces will not fall as random as they should. And if you don't think that this can be rigged then notice that of you do complete a level with say 10 moves left those moves will be cleared by adding then to the board increasing your score.... But if you'll notice that when these moves are added that the falling pieces will fall in such a way as to not keep making matches. In other words the developer can dictate just how these pieces can fall. Hence rigging the game. Yea it's just a game and yea it's just a free game but time to delete this one and move on to the next.
I am beginning to not like your game
by smallville rick on 2020/04/16 22:28
Mostly because you should have a chance to wi every time you play but I’ve become convinced that I win when you want me to. You watch commercials for extra turns misty comes when you don’t have a chance to win. The butterflies never go where you need them to go. One game I had all my colors but needed to get rid of flowers to win but the butterflies never went to the flowers rather just kept going to the spots to drop the scarecrow even thought I didn’t need for that to drop. What drops after you take something away is never what you need except when you let me win the game. So I will play your game but if it continues as before I will not watch your ads and soon may stop playing a game up until now mostly enjoyed playing! I am done. What was once a game I loved to play now I don’t it’s rigged for you to lose until the time when they want you to win maybe all they want is for you to BUY the free turns and when the realize you won’t they they let you win so you’ll keep playing but enough is enough good by
STILL takes away moves
by Kuuipo0806 on 2017/11/25 16:21
I am on level 1265..how is it that I’m still losing moves when I go to the next screen? I would end the first screen with 5 moves left and on the next screen it would only reflect one left. Before it was taking only one move away NOW it is 3-4?! I identified this flaw already when I was on level 1245 and instead of it being fixed it has gotten worse. While playing this game, I've noticed that it takes away a move while switching to the next screen. Specifically, in levels like 1245 where you clear a path for Dorothy. I spend a lot of time (and unfortunately money) playing this game. It may be time to take a lo g break from it till they fix this bug. Wish I caught this before I kept putting more money into it.
Fun game BUT ...
by cheesehead51 on 2018/08/13 16:52
I have been playing for a year now. It has now gotten to the point that if I don’t pay money I will not get past certain levels. No rewards pop up any longer. I have been stuck on a level for weeks now. Constantly I’m left with one item to clear before I’m out of moves. I suspect this is by design hoping I’ll bite and buy moves. I’ve done that in the past but no more. I don’t play for several days out of frustration, only to get back into the same vicious cycle. Other games give you some assistance to welcome you back to a game. I’d like to just delete it and hopefully start all over again; at least you’ll get the potential to move past a level in a reasonable amount of play. Almost done with this one.
Short changes your progress
by symonsayz on 2019/07/26 13:43
Love the game however when you clear off the board needed to reach your goal to win the game I notice on several occasions your numbers or credits are not counted, example, your goal is to clear off red poppy’s, so as you keep eliminating them your goal keeps getting smaller and smaller what I find is many times you clear them off the board but your goal stays the same, example, 10 poppy’s to clear, you eliminate say 3 and your goal number stays the same, it should be down to 7, so it’s rigged in their favor to get you to spend money, I will not be tricked into paying, sorry but if this was on the up and up I would rate it 5 stars and maybe spend money to play, but not when the game is rigged
Will bleed you dry
by TRIP470 on 2017/12/22 02:35
Game has great sounds and graphics. Ive been playing for yrs now and notice that I'm unable to advance without having to make in app purchases continually to advance. Ive played many match 3 games but the gameplay has now become completely stressful, draining and not fun at all. No other ways are provided to give you coins except through payment. It amazes me that most developers have created gaming apps that really aren't games but a form of gambling....where you are constantly paying to play. I don't mind anyone making a profit but be honest. These are your customers. I know big business has kinda thumbed their nose at the consumer believing their gameplay is borderline addictive behavior or disassociation “playing” out and so they have no interest in anything but their own greed. Not only is this nation crumbling but the entire world is suffering bcause of this mindset. I wont say no one should play just use caution. Soon enough you will see its truly not a game just a gambling apparatus.
I really love this game....
by kevin's cassie on 2019/05/10 14:52
But, I've tried the newer version and I have to say that the only thing I would change is that the character coming out needs to be a little bit slower. I'm up to level 191 and when the character, who this level is the Scarecrow, comes out to throw the Poppies, he is way too fast to keep up with. It's like "Here comes the Poppies---whoosh, whoosh". I guess that I can get used to it, but it's going to take awhile, I guess. Keep up the great work. It's a great game!!! Friday, May 10th, One other change I'd make is that you should change it to where the horizonal screen comes up. I definitely DO NOT LIKE it in portrait screen. My IPad runs smoother when I play games in horizonal more. Judging from what I've been reading in the other posts, no one likes the portrait screen either!!! PLEASE CHANGE IT!!!
One of the best games on the App Store!
by Ememememeem on 2019/01/18 05:49
Im always looking for new games, and I usually sit through hours of ads a day while playing games. There are most often ads before, during, and after games. This game caught my attention because there are no ads ever, especially between levels, so the game flows smoothly. The levels are relevant to the story & movie of Wizard of Oz in an amazing and cute way- dare I say this is better than candy crush! All the little details not only give reference to the original movie & story, but each level keeps you interested and the animations are sooo life like, and spot on. I could go on and on, but you should just try it for yourself! Fun & not too easy, the right challenge!! Xo
Great game
by LaLa 19880106 on 2017/12/02 18:50
I love the game however, I’ve had multiple technical issues with this game! I have been in the middle of competitions and my progress completely deleted. I have finished all tiers on events and my progress has been deleted. When I email the company all they do is ensure that their developers are hard at work to resolve the issues. I have never experienced the customer service being rude, however, they are not sympathetic. They do not like to redeem your purchases or the items that you lost from the glitches in the game. I have contacted them multiple times and I have been told the same thing over and over... force close the game or delete it and reinstall it. I’m not stuck at level 555 because it won’t download my new episode. I’m done with this game! Its frustrating probably because I like the game so much! If you had fixed these issues sooner, I wouldn’t be deleting it!
Sad, Disappointed & DELETING✌️
by Mrs.Alonzo on 2017/10/07 05:00
I really enjoy playing this game. It's my little escape at night before bed and it helps me clear my head from the day. Why do you need so much FREAKIN storage!!!! But what I can't get past is why would a simple fun game cheat me out of points I obviously earned? Or why when I have two more turns and make a move, suddenly I have no more turns?...Why cheat ppl out of fun. When you cut corners or what ever the term might be for a game app, you take the fun out of it. I've been playing this game for some time now and I'm comfortable with this game. I enjoy it but not so much that I'm disregarding my responsibilities. But when I'm being cheated out of the satisfaction of winning because the game decides that I don't get the full points for a turn I clearly should have received, I question why I'm giving this game so much of my precious sleep time....I'm very saddened with the decorum of how this game is being controlled.
Love the game, but…
by sammbrasil on 2017/10/06 00:52
Updated review*****… I still love this game, and it is the game I play the most. But it can be very frustrating! I was currently on tier four of the "Butterfly Bonanza" and just got a notice that the game was being updated and had to reload. When the game restarted all my points were gone and it started me over again with nothing on tier one!!! 😕 I love this game… And enjoy playing it some every day. I do get frustrated with the daily rewards. I play all the way up to day 20 and then instead of getting the Grand prize… I start back at day one. I don't know what the prize is supposed to be… Because I have never seen it. The battle matches are now two hours and that is too long. I also would love to be able to choose when to use my unlimited time bonuses.
This game used to be fun.
by Wiz of Oz player 1234 on 2021/01/08 03:20
I’m currently on level 3031, so yeah, I’ve played this game a lot and for a very long time. I wrote a review recently but must’ve got overlooked or deleted. In recent times I’ve experienced “glitches” I guess. Rewards for getting the same item/colors in a row, such as 5 to get a crystal ball. Many times after lining up the items in the game, my reward I would’ve won just “disappears”. Also have had many times where the “it’s a twister” action goes into effect, at a time when either I still had moves, and it’s done that to me when I was all set to win the level. This game cheats. Also used to be able to earn gold coins, multiple crystal balls, on a regular basis. Haven’t been able to earn those in the last couple of years. I’ve written the makers of the game and of course no response. I’m ready to quit the game and delete the app. As I stated in my title, this game used to be fun. Now it’s not even fun anymore. The levels are too hard and they arbitrarily give you not enough moves to defeat levels. Seems like they just want you to spend money on “prize packages” that include coins and stuff so you can win levels a little bit easier. Well sorry Wizard of Oz, I’m not gonna give you any of my money. I’m not a sucker. I’m over this game and like I said, ready to delete the app. And I hope LOTS of people read this.
Update
by gert1955 on 2019/03/18 15:34
I don’t know why when it was updated that you can now only play in portrait mode, before you had the option of playing portrait or landscape, please change it back! Another issue is when you reach higher levels it’s so much harder to get boosts or ANYTHING, then when you have a problem with the game freezing just when you win the level and now loose all the boosts and coins you have lost on that level and you contact support they take forever getting back to you and reimbursing your coins/boosts, one time it took them over two weeks to reimburse mine so I had nothing to play with and I refused to purchase because I should have still had some to play with and that’s exactly what they wanted me to do, and they act like your lying about the game freezing and you loosing your coins/boosts when I sent them pictures and they can look back and see exactly what you were playing and how much you lost.
My favorite
by Tgrldy on 2018/09/15 02:12
I have played many match three games. I started this one when it first came out and been playing on it for two years I have never had any major technical issues and it is the first game I have actually spent any money on, not just because I wanted to advance to the next levels, but because it was a really good game and it seem like a good investment. they have change things that I wanted changed and I did not have to complained about, I guess I have everybody else to do that for me. You all keep up the good work I love your game I love you can play even when you haven’t come up with new levels.I will always play this game unless for some reason you stop making it.
Just another "Free" game you'll pay a lot to play
by Roo and Moof on 2018/02/02 09:11
Fake ratings- they try to trick players into clicking a "5 star rating" button that looks like a "continue playing" button appearing after a level is completed. This is nothing special, different, or exciting, and the music is thoroughly annoying after a short amount of time. The trivia nuggets are commonly known- huge let down. Minimum purchase of extra moves is $4.99 (for all those levels that are calibrated to be just out of reach for the number of moves allotted and tasks assigned you in a level). You'll never actually finish the game. I keep coming close, then they add more levels. It's a waste of time. Also malfunctions where items freeze, always manages to deprive me of a turn or malfunctions when I'm close to winning a hard level, not when I'm behind. Also deprives of power-ups and other cheats when I'm close to winning- save your cash, and don't start.
Fun as a time killer.
by Hinterlander on 2018/07/10 02:49
This is technically my second review, an update... while I support developers and have paid into games like bloons 4 and 5, I will not hand any money over for this game. I’ve read too many other reviews where they double charge with no refund, and I just don’t trust the company anymore. I’ve noticed the wizard and butterflies are close to useless, I thought they were there to help. I had one ice shard left, combined two butterflies twice (that makes 6) they both went after stars for some reason, then I dropped two wizards and their help was everything but that last ice shard. Really?!? Happens quite often. Level 503...I release a beam that shoots through a rust block and nothing happens, then a butterfly released by the beam hit the rust block and again nothing happened, the rust block took my yellow lollipop. Really?!? That happens quite a bit. The butterflies at that point are useless as they hit things that were hit by beams or bombs. Aaaand then I’ve seen on multiple occasions the combination of blocks to form bombs, beams, etcetera and they never materialize. Sneaky. If that’s what you have to do to make money then count me out. I’ll play, however I’ll give my money to other games that aren’t that inconsistent. Be careful with your money and if you don’t mind that stuff then by all means spend on the game, me? Nope. Bit
Off to See The Wizard!!!
by Cheerful giver on 2018/01/17 16:10
Very fun and so very addicting I love the animation and the music... I would've given 5 stars , there are still some alot of glitches... Game Freezing up, loosing levels, things of that nature... Gets annoying ... Even being double billed... I love this game... I really do not want to delete it, but I’m going to have to because the only option to buy power ups are $4.99 packages... that’s absolutely ridiculous! it should be a $.99 option at least! it’s ridiculous that you have to pay $4.99 every time you want to buy a power up or advance...why it keeps having glitches I have no idea because customer Service never ever responds to anything I have sent emails I have inbox them on messenger never nothing back no response unacceptable!!!! I truly do believe that the wicked witch runs this app!
Creators purpose
by spencersluvd on 2017/10/25 19:57
A game should be something to just relax and play for fun or simple entertainment however that doesn’t seem to be the case. I can’t believe I’m writing this review let alone contacted this game support. It takes them more than a day to respond, and the when they do it’s the same suggestions every time. I’ve done all the troubleshooting they suggest and it doesn’t work. I completed level 795 and agreed to download the next set of levels, it said completed and now won’t open. It doesn’t seem like the game support wants to fix the issue, if I have to delete the game I won’t reinstall! What’s the point of the hassle when there’s a lot of other issues throughout the game. It seems like the game wants to get people to buy stuff or the game doesn’t work. It’s just a game but they make it an issue!
Disappointing
by DWagner56 on 2020/03/06 20:21
I love this game except for the Emerald City Challenge. According to the instructions for this I should be 2 levels up than what I am. Supposedly one is supposed to be promoted to the next level if you finish “above the promotion zone” Every week I have not only finished “ above promotion zone” I have also finished in 1st place. No promotion & no rewards. This challenge was a waste of time. There seems to be a glitch is this part of the game. Otherwise this is my favorite game, but this issue has pretty much ruined the fun. The above issues were fixed a long time ago & I now love the Emerald City Challenge, this latest version has some very irritating problems. 1st: After I finish a level the screen goes black. I can still hear the game but have to turn it off & restart in order to continue to play. This has happened over & over in the past week since the update. 2nd: Good grief! Why all the ads!!! And some of them loop over & over and have to be manually turned off! There always have been a lot of ads, but this is getting ridiculous! I REALLY LIKE the game but these problems make it less fun and more of a waste of time. I will delete the game if these issues aren’t fixed.
Game play
by sassy06069 on 2018/08/03 21:49
This game has excellent graphics, it’s fun and challenging but there are a couple of things that I don’t really like. Like when you have a globe on the board and you use one of the other special characters or boosts, and the globe is in the line it clears, it takes the globe out. I realize it gives you points for it, but I’d rather be able to use the globe! Also, when Glenda’s manic is full, I’d rather be able to use it when I choose to use it, instead of at the end of whatever round it gets full on. A good portion of the time it goes to waste because I’m nowhere close to winning the round. Sure it’s helped me win a round several times, but its something the player works for, so we should be able to use it when we need it most!
Game has issues
by Dotster66 on 2020/02/03 08:59
This is the best match three I've played. It's challenging and fun. The problem is that I have had to delete it and reinstall several times because it gets stuck and will not load the game. This is very frustrating. If I didn't enjoy playing so much, I would delete it permanently. I have played this game for years and still found it challenging and fun. However, I have been stuck on level 1495 for months. I don’t know how to move the hot air balloons They have moved a few times, but I don’t know why, so I don’t know what I’m doing right or wrong. I’ve tried to find the answer but haven’t gotten any information. I used to play every day but now I go weeks without playing because it’s just not fun. If someone could just tell me how to move the balloons, I would appreciate it.
Just as rigged as all the others
by Quickening on 2017/11/29 10:16
You get to a certain point where you’re forced to use boosters to get anywhere. And if you don’t have any, you’re forced to shell out money to buy some or else get stuck on the same level over and over and over.... There are also “normal” and “hard” levels but honestly there is hardly any difference between most of them. They’re ALL hard unless you’re willing to spend ridiculous amounts of real money to advance. Screw that. They do offer “help” every once in while in the form of Glinda appearing to offer three extra lives and some boosters, but she always seems to appear when none of that will actually make a difference. If I need at LEAST seven more moves to finish a level and she only offers three, HOW is that supposed to be helping me? I was hoping this game would be different than all the others, but it’s just another Candy Crush. Frustrating and pointless.
Are you kidding
by ( Salty22 ) on 2018/08/25 14:37
I have been playing this game for a very long time. I do enjoy this game yes at times it gets frustrating. When the game was done we could play 5 more times if we bought the extra turns for 9 coins. Now to play the extra games it jump from 9 coins for 5 extra plays to 100 coins for 5 plays. Are you kidding !!! That is ridiculous either go back to 9 and truthfully it should be lower then 9 for its only 5 plays but okay ! I’m Very disappointed. Not sure how long I will keep this game. I’m back to rate this game again after a couple of days playing since the last update and yes I lowered the ratings When I first started playing almost year and some ago I gave the game 5 stars, and then it went down to 3 stars - and now within a couple of days it’s at 2 stars. Please just put the game back before this last update.

Wizard of Oz
by Sugarfoot01 on 2021/02/24 05:16
I used to love this game. Been playing it for nearly a year or more but since Legends has been introduced, I hate it. It’s nearly impossible to win a level unless you spend more money to get more time or plays. The level I’m on has only 16 plays to clear the board of boxes or red items when hardly any reds are even on the board.....ridiculous! After spending $5.00 last week, I will finally delete the game.
Game
by kyle5577 on 2021/02/24 04:43
I love this game I’m so addicted to it
Beware
by Heather 1025 on 2021/02/24 03:39
While the game is fun, don't count on getting the full points added by watching the ads because it doesn't happen especially on the higher points. It might tell you the ad is worth 48 points or higher but it won't credit you that amount.
Why?
by IronRodMan1 on 2021/02/23 02:16
The game is fun and great graphics. However, I am advancing thru the levels just to receive the same movie reels! Seems like to me it’s wanting me to spend money before I will get different reels! Sry not going to do it! So why is that ?
Want a challenge
by 420 Kushh on 2021/02/21 23:07
The a wizard of Oz will get you thinking. It is fun to win.
Not loading
by Spottie dog on 2021/02/21 19:35
Please fix the issue my game is not loading it just says start up in progress and never loads it’s been this way for about a week and I spent a lot of money on this game so please fix it😡
Not working
by AngryyM0M on 2021/02/21 17:40
My app has not been working for 2 weeks!! I keep checking to see if works but when I click on the app it doesn’t work at all. It just keeps saying downloading it never loads. I’m so disappointed if I have to delete and reload the app I will lose all of my progress 😫 so annoying
Rip off!
by Qazserfvbhuik on 2021/02/21 14:03
As has happened multiple times in the past, I paid for items within app and did not receive product. Paid $6.99 for the new season pass and was supposed to receive 100coin. Receive zero coin. 😡
Legends
by orchidlade on 2021/02/20 18:43
Don’t look forward to legends, you will be stuck on levels for 50 plus attempts if not more, supposed to be a treat, more like a punishment while waiting for new levels; which takes weeks, like the game but stop playing often cuz stuck in legends
Dishonesty at its finest!!!!
by NewEngland68 on 2021/02/20 17:26
Game is fun, but once you realize a move that is supposed to give you a ‘power-up’ (like matching 4 in a row) totally gyps you, it’s time to move on to a game that works when it’s supposed to. Levels are nearly impossible half the time and will require you to play it over and over (sometimes 20 or more times) to progress to the next stage.. and with only 5 free lives that’s how they hook you into spending money. Total RIPOFF. Don’t waste your time or money on these a$$holes.
Great game
by stakerbaker on 2021/02/20 02:40
Love wizard of oz. and I love all the facts about the movie. Lots of fun. 👍
Nothing like the promo!!
by antosksb on 2021/02/19 20:55
So far this game is nothing like the promo I saw -which gave me the incentive to play this - but maybe I need to get to hogher levels in order to see the game board that sucked me in... I’ll stick with it just a little longer
Wont load

Too many pop ups
by Susan Vellek on 2021/02/18 13:07
Too many pop ups and time should only start when playing the game. Cannot play for 12 hours straight.
Update app
by Laurice Abdelhalim on 2021/02/18 04:46
I been trying to open the app all day and it says starting progress but has not opened. Im on level 2298. Im afraid if I delete app and reinstall, i will loose my level. Plz help.

Money hungry game builders
by mslilypadtoo on 2021/02/16 22:17
I have played 5006 games and every one of them has been a hassle. It takes several tries in order to get ahead because so many blocks have been put into it. And I refuse to pay money to play this game. I took the app off for a whole year. And right now it is going again. I guess you builders can never learn a lesson and not be so greedy. The five stars was to get your attention only. This game I can’t even give it a one star. Well good luck everyone else but mine is gone.
Love the game...
by cant believe Nickname is taken on 2021/02/13 03:38
But, won’t play which witch ever again. Totally rigged! I NEVER win regardless who I choose. Total waste of time! What is the point of the Common Reel? At first I may have gotten some rewards, but now nothing!
No other game like it!!!!
by redravensky on 2021/02/12 07:42
There’s no other game like this one not just the gameplay but the graphics the storytelling the past memories of childhood gone past thank you for all the hours of gameplay thank you for the hours you gave me and more to come thank you!

Very sad
by summerwinds64 on 2021/02/11 21:06
I am really disappointed in how this game has gotten so bad. You don’t get your free lives once you claim them. If you contact them they put the problem and blame on you. Very disappointed right now with the creators of this game.
Stuck on a level
by leftNJ on 2021/02/10 23:54
I love this game but I have reached 1152 and I cannot get through it. I have figured out how to get rid of more squares but it doesn’t always work. Is this as far as I can go? NOT happy!!!!!
Ok so far
by Buckmonk on 2021/02/10 17:41
Fun game but I’m sure some levels will be impossible to win without some bonus helps

Scam
by rolltidebobbyj on 2021/02/09 05:44
Just like 100 other games. Fun for a bit then it gets impossible without basically buying your way through it. Better off with candy crush. Don’t waste money or time on this!
Love this game
by Nancya1973 on 2021/02/09 01:28
I have been playing this game for years and Ijust can’t get enough of it! If you have seen the movie, you will definitely love this game. The characters and the sounds effect just like the movie. I simply love it!!!!

I have been playing this game for years and had written with problems with the game . Recently the game is awful I keep playing daily and it change my rank and points daily and it’s not adding the points every time I watched a commercial. Very frustrated and I am about to delete it. Just today, February 8, 2021 was rank 22 with 1377 points and when kept playing got me down with a different rank and very low points. Something is wrong with the data of this game

Slowly taking away ways to earn coins and level up
by Axel602 on 2021/02/05 16:47
I’m growing frustrated with the changes they are making. I’m on level 943 and I haven’t been able to pass it, which isn’t my complaint. First they’ve removed the boost ability so the Oz tickets are of no help. Then they removed the ads for free coins feature. Now they removed the feature where you can earn extra coins for stars after games in tournaments. I love the game but I am disappointed in these changes.
Fun in OZ

Rip off
by tyrgy11 on 2021/02/03 00:21
I love this game but when you play to win something and then to collect it you have to pay for it. Nope And watch videos ok but when they offer 20 or 40 gems you never get them. They said wait it will pop up Anahi Nope they never do. Now it won’t let me post

This game used to be fun especially when u had goals to reach.Now those are no longer available🤷🏼‍♀️Since then I rarely play this game and will eventually delete the game.I have been playing for years but it is no more challenging.Good luck with ur new way to play
Level 2871
by Colton T. on 2021/01/30 03:34
I really like this game except the level 2871 is really really hard I constantly keep dying. Especially no funds to get those things on the game like magic ball, line cutter etc etc
Watch your game rip you off
by :) yeah .,?! on 2021/01/30 00:36
This is the biggest rip off! They give you your earned power ups only to take them away immediately.. they strategically place them and then they’re gone before your first move it’s awful then u if u make a butterfly like they want u to when u use it it goes to something already checked off ie. U need one red cube u make a butterfly u release it and it goes to the blue that u already got all?! There is so many things too many to list in game that is just not worth it! Beware! Also they have you connect to a social media and u can ask for help for lives however they won’t let you connect to people u r sitting next to for and extra life in all the years playing I’ve ever received an extra life or been able to play with my kids or hubby they literally pick off ur social media and show u a small list of same people that have said they sent a life however Idk where it went?! Anyway watch ur screen they will blow up the screen make it look like ur getting far with the craziness but if u watch what u have left to get nothing moves! It’s so bad also strange but the first go round with a lvl u almost wet it then next try u don’t even come close then a few times more and u will all the sudden beat it with like 20+ moves left?! Just not worth it! And now they make it so u win but not win I’ll add my attachment!
Disappointed in new pay-to-play “seasons” feature
by PRD1234 on 2021/01/29 03:37
I have played this game every day for almost three years. The graphics and themes are wonderful. The levels are challenging without being impossible. New levels and features kept the game fresh. The options for in-app purchases was always there if you wanted to advance a bit more quickly (which I sometimes did) however if you wanted to just be persistent and play harder to advance you could still compete in the game. But this month the developers decided to change the playing field and make it necessary to pay a monthly fee (season pass). Oh you can still play without a season pass if you can’t pay the $5 a month but you don’t get any where! So after 3 years of daily play, I am saying goodbye. It’s just not fun anymore now that the playing field is no longer level. Too bad they couldn’t offer 2 versions- one for those who don’t mind paying a monthly subscription and another for those who can only afford the occasional in-app purchase.
Beware if spending real money!
by Valentine girl77777 on 2021/01/29 00:16
I’ve been playing this game s long time, it’s a fun game, but every time I spend real money in this app I always get screwed somehow and when I contact customer service they just blow me off and act like I’m an idiot and that I’m confused on what’s happening!! They say if you purchase anything take before and after screenshots so you can prove any wrong doing (which is impossible most of the time because if you leave the game to take those screen shots you loose your progress!!) These issues have happened many times, I’m done spending real money, and may just delete this app, there’s plenty other games out there!!
Best Game Ever !!!
by GeorgiegirlRN on 2021/01/28 04:49
Level 3228 !!! I love this game !!! Recently I have introduced this game to many of my Covid patients. Most are in a room by themselves with no visitors for up to two weeks some even longer. I love walking into their room and hearing them singing along or seeing them excited about beating another level. Thank You for such a wonderful game.

Great game but will freeze
by kvnov on 2021/01/25 07:38
During a tile match against the witch,game froze as I was about to win and made me start over the level to lose!
Awesome game!!! But....
by princesscaddie on 2021/01/23 02:59
Really enjoy this game but I had to stop playing because to continue on I had to buy coins ~and it’s amazing when you stop buying you dip quickly in ranks which is unfair and I’m pretty high on the levels too
Disappointing
by JoanCarol on 2021/01/19 19:32
Jan 2021 I’m so glad I received a response from the developer. NOW, IF I COULD FIND IT, THAT WOULD BE JUST WONDERFUL. After scrolling down several hundred reviews, I could not find it! On certain levels, you might have 5 moves left yet there us no way to go. The hint moves so you can see where to go, but you cannot because there are no 3 of the same colors together. What a waste if you can't move on. Deleting! I deleted, but RALPHIEGIRL, WHY did you give it FOUR stars if you didn’t like it?
My favorite

Review
by everglowgirl on 2021/01/08 14:17
Hate the way they took away the option to buy stuff with your earned tickets to help you in the game. I have been playing for a while and some levels take forever to win. You use to give more options for +3 moves for watching adds. Glinda’s manic use to come up more often. Not everyone can pay for power ups. Need more options to watch ads for power ups.
This game used to be fun.
by Wiz of Oz player 1234 on 2021/01/08 03:20
I’m currently on level 3031, so yeah, I’ve played this game a lot and for a very long time. I wrote a review recently but must’ve got overlooked or deleted. In recent times I’ve experienced “glitches” I guess. Rewards for getting the same item/colors in a row, such as 5 to get a crystal ball. Many times after lining up the items in the game, my reward I would’ve won just “disappears”. Also have had many times where the “it’s a twister” action goes into effect, at a time when either I still had moves, and it’s done that to me when I was all set to win the level. This game cheats. Also used to be able to earn gold coins, multiple crystal balls, on a regular basis. Haven’t been able to earn those in the last couple of years. I’ve written the makers of the game and of course no response. I’m ready to quit the game and delete the app. As I stated in my title, this game used to be fun. Now it’s not even fun anymore. The levels are too hard and they arbitrarily give you not enough moves to defeat levels. Seems like they just want you to spend money on “prize packages” that include coins and stuff so you can win levels a little bit easier. Well sorry Wizard of Oz, I’m not gonna give you any of my money. I’m not a sucker. I’m over this game and like I said, ready to delete the app. And I hope LOTS of people read this.
Total rip off!
by Danalous on 2021/01/08 00:30
At first relaxing fun game then bam!! All they want is money to keep playing. Absolutely ridiculous $9.99 for boosters! Do yourselves a favor stay away from the frustration and greediness!
Wizard of oz match 3
by scal1006 on 2021/01/07 13:17
I am only giving a 3 star because I was in legends, level 250+, and top in leaderboard. I purchased a new iPad, loaded the game up, connected to Facebook, and when I opened it, I was back 1000 levels! I lost all my progress! I did contact support, and they did nothing!
Ripped off
by Summermead on 2021/01/07 11:32
I have played for years in this game, I but tokens to help. I have bought tokens tonight to help win a level and the game froze so I play AGAIN the same level and it freezes again just as I was going to win THAT level again. No more!, I quit!!

This games is fun & also Challenges your mind to think and calculate your next move. I highly recommended this game for any age!
Good but
by AuraMax on 2020/12/24 23:46
Awesome game, creative, but holy cow.... WAY too many pop ups. I have to click the X on 5 windows before I can even play. Just information about the game etc. but still 5 star because it’s a brilliantly made game. Would just prefer a little notification box I can optionally choose to view or not.
Needing to update the Story book
by T. Dixon73 on 2020/12/24 19:28
The Oz Story book needs to be updated with more books. Coming soon has been there for a while now. This portion of the game helps us level up from time to time.

One of the better games
by daveinbr on 2020/12/20 14:49
I’ve been playing for a couple years, and I’m up around level 1500. I’ve never had to pay for anything. The ads are minimal. And it’s pretty fun for a match game.
Best advice, don’t walk, run away from this game!
by Bizirk on 2020/12/19 13:56
I just deleted this game after several years of playing on2 different phones. It’s addicting alright— but this company wants one thing; into your wallet. If you don’t let them, they make it impossible to move ahead. Believe the reviewers before me who did let them into their wallet. You can see how Zynga punishes you if you don’t pay them in spite of the non-stop ads you’re forced to watch. 2 things I feel good about right now is deleting this game (level 2300) and the fact no matter what, I refused to let them into my wallet. It’s greedy companies like this that I will never take their bait. You shouldn’t either. Best thing you could do is don’t even download. There’s plenty of good companies that are not this way. I’m not opposed to paying, I’m opposed to greed. If I enjoy a game that doesn’t work this way, it’s an honor to see them benefit a bit more than the ad revenue. Sometimes there are creators who do deserve a boost. But actually dealing with non-stop ads should be enough in itself. I also can’t understand running out of lives. Do you really think you’re so addicting anyone in their right mind would pay to keep playing? All you’re doing is costing yourself ad revenue. You should be ashamed Zynga. Also know you have several glitches. I don’t FB at all, so you haven’t heard from me on the matter before. Btw, I’ve won the match only 3 times in 2300 level on this phone. (You must watch every ad and then some!) For what? A few booster power ups that this company intends to take back almost immediately after winning them if you intend to advance. My only regret is not deleting this game much sooner. It’s been obvious for sometime their intentional grift. I will give 2 stars for the game format. It is cute but even in that, it ticks me off they’re using the magic of Oz to rip people off.
Cheat
by Tronniepooh on 2020/12/18 07:51
I really liked this game until I was ready to win my board had one more bug to get but they never gave me any more bugs in 8 moves. That really blew me.

Very good game very addictive if you like matching 3 or 4 of same blocks.And to hear Dorothy saying words after you made a big score pretty cool

by Jfa59$ on 2020/12/16 12:50
Played for a long time, as you progress the games get much harder. I’m on the same level for days, even the ‘not hard’ games. I just want to do this to decompress, I will be leaving this one now.

by Maxxi C on 2020/12/07 11:14
I think this started after I did the last update. I can’t play the game. If I get into it. It closes. But mostly while loading it closes. It’s getting old. I now will lose my currant standing Along with the daily goodies. Please fix this for the IPad. My IPhone doesn’t have this problem.
Not much fun anymore
by mooslows on 2020/12/07 07:33
This game used to be fun. Levels are super hard to win now. No offers to watch ads for 3 free plays. It gets boring after you play a level 20 to 50 times.
Only game I haven’t quit
by chickLeigh on 2020/12/05 16:04
I normally get frustrated and quit games. This game is a great balance of being challenging and still fun! Lots of free ways to earn power-ups! You do however need to open new sets or a way to trade tickets for power ups or lives. I’ve collected all sets so tickets are worthless! Love this game just needs some updates!!
Very expensive game to play!
by nanci2121 on 2020/12/05 08:40
When I initially started playing this game, they gave you a lot of different incentives to build up your tools, so that you could actually win the game. Now, it seems like every game, you have to spend money just to win that game. I also noticed that after you spend the money, you win almost instantly. Like within the next move you win, so they are somehow setting their algorithms do you make it so you have to spend some thing to win the game. Trust me it was not like this in the beginning, it was fun it was relaxing, you got a chance build up your tools to help you win further. Now to me, it’s all money, money, money. I get it, this is how they make money on the game, however any other game I play give you incentives so that you don’t have to continually spend money to get to your next goal. It’s very sad to me, because I truly love this game. With the economy the way it is, with the country in the shape that it’s in, you would think that there would be some sort of eagerness to help people continue playing. All that being said, the game is beautifully put together the music is wonderful, and it CAN be a lot of fun.
Meh
by logflogger on 2020/12/02 02:38
It’s a really fun game at first. I’ve been playing for a few years. I’ve gotten so far up in levels that it’s virtually impossible to beat without purchasing power ups. It’s become redundant and bleh. Honestly thinking about uninstalling because I’ve been stuck forever and I’ve grown bored and rarely play now.

The app exceeds the size of the viewable area on the iPhone 12 Pro. Very annoying, please correct this bug. Thanks.

There is a mistake on number 1904...the witch leaves the game early before she reaches the edge...then you cannot win!
Oz game
by junkyard at on 2020/11/30 18:29
Well got so far and now can’t go no further I have enjoyed playing was looking forward to see it to the e d but now I won’t get to hope u fix all the problems with this game because I know a lot of people enjoy playing this game
No Coins
by Supermom501 on 2020/11/29 21:37
I haven’t received any coins in 3 weeks so that is why I don’t play as much as I use to.
Trading in butterflies
by Ribbett99 on 2020/11/29 21:01
I had almost 400 butterflies left when they were about expire earlier today and couldn’t because nothing nothing left for the amount I had . So in fact I lost almost 400 butterflies. Lol a big rip off. But yet I had to watch all the advertising wasting my time to not get to use my “rewards”.
Wizard of Oz match 3
by Kathy Fallon on 2020/11/29 05:19
Your games is frozen!!! Cannot play When can I play? Are you fixing it? Tor game is still frozen since last night 11-20-2000 11-21-2020. The game is still frozen!!! 11-22-2020. I got the game back but can’t purchase coins? Why?? I cannot purchase coins. When I try it keeps telling me purchase error!
Glitches
by Jossy's Nana on 2020/11/29 00:55
I would give this game five stars because it could be fun but the glitches are ridiculous.
They Don’t Care!
by VegasNel on 2020/11/28 04:20
Wrote them too many times because of the bugs in the games. The game constantly locks up requiring you close out and start over. Then they change the game to play ONLY in the portrait view and the annoying ads are upside side down. They could care less , if I was a company paying for ads I would be upset. When you contact them they always have a lame excuse. If you don’t purchase their offers to play they control your wins, remember it is a computer game and they can control wins, so when you DON’T BUY YOU WONT WIN! I have a 4 Month old iPad Air 2 and recently checked by Apple to see if something was wrong with my iPad because of the game lock ups, after Apple checkied the game on my IPad I was told by Apple their games have errors. I advise you If you decide to play just don’t buy any packages!

I’ve been playing for a couple of years and like it a lot A couple of things are really upsetting. What happened to boosting with tickets?!? I keep getting tickets, but they no longer seem useful, as if you’re just trying to make us join with Facebook. Also, in the Glinda vs Witch game, it feels like you’re cheating. When I play with Glinda, the witch almost always wins. If I switch and play the witch, then Glinda almost always wins. Is it rigged? In the side games, the first few are easy and fun, and then suddenly they get nearly impossible, as if you really wAnt to force us to buy assets. Maybe a more gradual difficulty wouldn’t feel that way. Otherwise, the game is fun and truly beautiful. Head and shoulders above other games. NEW complaint: all of a sudden, in the Glinda-Witch battles, you get no points while working back up to where you were stumped. This makes the replay boring and pointless (pun intended). Changes aren’t always for the better. Still fun, but starting to lose interest. Emerald boosts no longer possible using tickets-worst change so far. This is the third time I have sent this review. WHAT IS WITH the TICKETS!!!!!??? A good addition would be letting the player carry over specials like crystal balls particularly on the ones with multiple windows that slide. A nice reward for getting the special in the first window. Some are just too hard to be fun.
Very fun...
by Seabed7 on 2020/11/25 00:37
This is the first game other then slots I have enjoyed. Yes it has a personality, yes the progressive levels are difficult but, it can be beat just slow down. I have a lot fun doing this...Another twenty levels down the road...playing this thing is akin to being addicted. Here I am months later I am at Level 2636... still having fun with it. 2,711 and still cruising along...
Wicked always win?
by Mama nova on 2020/11/22 18:52
When you play Glinda against the Wicked Witch, the Wicked Witch always wins now! That wasn’t the way it used to be. Call me what ever you want to but I refuse to play the bad guy! I know it is only a game but that is me!
Ripped off
by na2955 on 2020/11/22 15:37
I buy a package and don’t receive it ! Be aware of scam on this game u sure as heck get charged !
Ripped off too!
by lomn time player on 2020/11/22 12:35
I just paid for a 9.99 bundle to keep playing to finally win a hard level, and the money was deducted from my apple account but I never received credit for the bundle! What a rip off!
Rip off!!!
by CuteGame on 2019/11/23 23:45
I have played years on this game. In all the games I play online, not once have I Ever written a review. However, I can't deal with being ripped off after I've paid to play the game further! I only had 2 more things I needed to win, so I spent the $4.99, only to have it close the game unless I paid again. So, I thought ok, I'll let that slide & go ahead & buy the $2.99 to continue playing. Nope, it closed again as if ready to start a fresh new game unless I paid more to continue. I know I shouldn't have, but I paid the $2.99 one more time thinking surely it would take it & let the game continue on. Btw, this is not the 1st time this game has done this to me. I wrote the company several yrs. back, about getting a refund on the time before, but never heard one word back from them. I love this game, & most people might have quit after it did this to them twice. I never would have considered it, but after this time, I feel they are totally ripping people off. I'm not one to spend a lot of money on a game, mainly because I don't make that much. So when I do spend it, it's on things I enjoy, like this game. However, I don't like to be taken advantage of. I try to be a nice person with a kind & loving heart to people. So, that's why I warn you to just be careful on spending your hard earned money on this game. Hopefully, it won't take your money like it did mine. I wish all of you the best of luck. -- L. in Tx.
Great game but needs fixed!
by BlasterMaster6110 on 2020/05/15 13:01
I do love this game. It’s almost the only game I ever play. I’ve been playing for over 3 years now and of course it’s got glitches and issues sometimes, but when I’m paying for things on this game, I don’t expect or appreciate being closed out of the game right before receiving my awards and advancements. Also, when you make a bonus match during a tile game with the wicked witch, you’re suppose to continue with your turn until you can no longer make a bonus match. Why is the witch taking my turns when I’m about to win?? I do not understand that. It clearly says “bonus - keep going” but instead of letting me take my next turn, the witch proceeds to take it from me. I’ve had the game long enough to know this should not be happening so please fix this issue. It’s rather annoying and if it doesn’t change soon, I’ll no longer make purchase (and I make plenty) and I’ll just delete the game and spend my money on a better designed game. I’m currently on level 3,120 and 522 in the Legends Division. I’d hate to lose all I’ve built up over the last few years but I won’t continue to pay money to a game that’s cheating me out of it. Thank you!

Finicky love affair with this game...
by Ralphie Girl on 2019/07/09 03:39
When I first started playing I was blown away by the graphics, the bonuses, the tidbits and absolutely loved everything about this game. Being the “rabid Oz fan” that I am I knew this game could either be fabulous or a flop. Once I got deep into the game I wasn’t as enthusiastic, as with any game it seemed you had to pay to play, then the whole thing crashed so I didn’t play for quite some time. Everything got repaired and it was fun again...until the developers decided to try a “reboot” and everything became too cost prohibitive...so, thankfully, they changed back to the old format. Now, it seems there are bugs again and I may quit playing altogether! For a month now I’ve tapped on the bonuses and sat through a 30 second ad only to get shafted and not receive anything! After reaching top tier and doing everything I’m supposed to, I get demoted 3 levels within days! Boo-hiss developers! AND, when I indulged and paid for a $5.99 package I was charged DOUBLE! Noooo, bad game! Bad! I’ve gone over some bank records and it seems this has happened a few times! Again, boo-hiss developers!
Game is becoming a ripoff
by rrh269 on 2020/07/12 02:55
I’ve been playing this game for several years now. I’ve spent a lot of money on it too. I’ve noticed what others have been saying. The game is starting to get greedy. They used to give nice rewards, a crystal ball, at every an ax, but now it’s mostly lives, which I don’t need. What really frustrates me is the magic butterflies. They used to click on the things you still needed to collect when you created one. That was kind of the point I think. And if you got into a spot where you had to pay to continue, they would always help. Well not anymore. It seems like they have been reprogrammed to not help you at all because say you have 2 turns left and just need 2 items. And lucky you, you have w butterflies you can tap and use. Well, the butterflies now won’t tap on the 2 items you need, they go to another part of the board and collect something you don’t need. Also, I’ve encountered some hard levels that are so hard, you will have to pay to keep going forward. Until recently that usually worked. I just however spent $4.99 + $2.99 + $2.99 thinking surely I’ll be able to get the last 2 pieces! Nope. $11 later and I still needed the same 2 pieces. I deleted the game. I’ve recently lost my job due to COVID, so I’m choosing where to spend my money, and spending it on an unfair game isn’t happening any longer from me. It’s sad because I really really like this game.
Bring back the goodies
by Retrocats on 2018/02/01 02:15
If you love wizard of oz this is a good companion to the slots game. This game had (past tense) a charm because they gave rewards on completion of tasks,levels. You may get an ax, a clear row, magic butterflies and the random unlimited life for couple hours. The useful rewards were nice because most of us play these games when we have a down period. Giving us unlimited lives for couple hours does us no good. Well...that’s about all they give away now. The little beneficial goodies are far and few between. And I have to second the complaints of crashing and freezing. It seems to occur exactly when you have made the move that wins the level. Frustrating if you did go ahead and spend the extra coins for additional moves. And to date ...no help from customer service. Only crickets. So why do I keep loading the game and playing??? Because when I’m waiting in the car for my sonic order it’s a nice way to zone out and hear the sounds of Oz.
Watch your game rip you off
by :) yeah .,?! on 2021/01/30 00:36
This is the biggest rip off! They give you your earned power ups only to take them away immediately.. they strategically place them and then they’re gone before your first move it’s awful then u if u make a butterfly like they want u to when u use it it goes to something already checked off ie. U need one red cube u make a butterfly u release it and it goes to the blue that u already got all?! There is so many things too many to list in game that is just not worth it! Beware! Also they have you connect to a social media and u can ask for help for lives however they won’t let you connect to people u r sitting next to for and extra life in all the years playing I’ve ever received an extra life or been able to play with my kids or hubby they literally pick off ur social media and show u a small list of same people that have said they sent a life however Idk where it went?! Anyway watch ur screen they will blow up the screen make it look like ur getting far with the craziness but if u watch what u have left to get nothing moves! It’s so bad also strange but the first go round with a lvl u almost wet it then next try u don’t even come close then a few times more and u will all the sudden beat it with like 20+ moves left?! Just not worth it! And now they make it so u win but not win I’ll add my attachment!
So very annoying.
by Jeano5150 on 2019/03/12 02:07
New Review: Now with the latest update the game can only be played in portrait mode. This is a deal breaker for me, and I definitely won't be playing it unless this is changed. Several of my friends have said they will delete the app if forced to play in portrait mode. This was a bad decision ~ or is it just poor coding? ........................................... This game could be a lot of fun. The graphics are fantastic, and the theme is very charming. But it really only works well if you have a very current device. If you have an older device, expect frequent freezing and unpredictable functionality. Also, like most games developed by this company, it is very highly monetized. As you progress to higher levels you need to use more and more "boosts" in order to pass the levels ~ and the daily bonuses are extremely stingy. Most annoying is one of their bugs. Namely, quite often he gifts sent to you by your friends simply disappear. I just had around 25 lives vanish. As I said, the game is very appealing, but even with that in mind I cannot recommend this game unless you are lucky enough to have a large balance in your iTunes account and you don't mind spending it on games instead of books, music and movies.
Fix the Game
by ImShe93 on 2020/07/17 14:31
I absolutely love this game! I solely play it to compete with the leader boards! I don’t understand how I can get up to nine lives and still be at the bottom of the totem pole. I understand that there is a win lose ratio but how is it even possible to lose one level for 12 hours? While sitting patiently waiting for more lives. Why are the butterflies no longer in my favor? What are the tickets good for now that story is complete. I have played the game for years and would hate to let it go! This used to be my go to game since I had to let candy crush go due to the same issues! One would think y’all would prefer more downloads that actually get played! Guess not! After making it to levels 3256 and 974 I would hope you want me to continue to play, sadly i hate being constantly cheated I stopped spending as much money because if you do it loosely the game becomes extremely hard and impossible to win without spending money. I connected to Facebook and only can see one friend luckily I can receive the life without signing in every single time! I love the game so much that I’ll give time to fix these bugs while finding a great replacement.
Fix this please!
by Necospargur on 2020/06/12 08:46
I LOVE this game! However, every time I complete a level and get to the ad there’s a problem. The ad plays, I hit the “x” and the screen goes black! The only way for me to get back to the game is to close the app entirely and open it up again. This is so annoying! I found a loophole when I receive a reel by clicking “gallery” which then allows me to exit out that way but you don’t win a reel every time. Like I said, I love this game, the graphics the reels with all the fun facts and the objectives but having it black out on me and having to go through all the closing and reopening every time is getting quite old. I’ve wanted to suggest this game to some fam & friends but I won’t be doing that until the issue is fixed. It can’t be that difficult, can it? Thank you for your time in addressing this! With what the world is going through right now this is quite minuscule but this is how I de stress only for it to cause frustration. RIP George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and so so many more people that were killed I’m such horrific ways by the men and woman that are suppose to be keeping us safe. This has got to stop!
Terrible update
by Marzy 2 on 2018/11/01 23:31
Just did an update to my game which you know every time you turn around there’s a update, right after the update I couldn’t even get in the game I had a window that kept popping up saying thank you for updating please restart the game so I’d hit restart oh I can’t restart because you’re not connected to Facebook but I couldn’t connect Facebook because the stupid pop up window kept popping up going restart restart couldn’t send a message to customer service either I’ve been playing this game for over a year I was on level 300 and something I maybe was 100 and something but I was up there and I had to delete the game, shut my iPad off completely an hour uploaded the game again and now I just get the screen that says Wizard of Oz magic match, frozen screen, It would be great if I could get back to play my game how bout fixing it people!!!
Lvl 1157
by Greenshadow73 on 2018/11/26 14:44
I’ve been an avid player of this game but am getting frustrated with items that I feel are supposed to help me but never do! I create butterflies to clear a hard to reach tile but instead it picks off a colored tile that I can get anytime. When the lion comes out after falling to the bottom, he removes tiles that aren’t as relevant as others are. It just really feels like the developers don’t want me to advance in this game and I’m not sure why? More often than not, my specials don’t help me out and instead do something irrelevant to my progress or some levels are just impossible to complete without using lives which in turn puts me in a position to buy way too much when I have items that should help me but don’t. And why am I given so much infinite time (like five hours the other day) but I lose it all if I can’t play five hours straight? Why doesn’t the time stop when I close the game or allow me to save those to use at my convenience? These things really need to be addressed or this games popularity will surely decline, which is too bad because I’ve really enjoyed it!
The game is addictive but take caution...player support is horrible!
by Trese0701 on 2017/09/27 11:20
The game is fun, the graphics and sounds nice. However, take caution, especially if you buy power ups or additional lives or even if you win them. I’ve had multiple technical issues with this game. Game freezes, crashes, etc. I’ve lost lives, power ups/lives and competitions because of multiple issues. Every time I’ve contacted customer support outlining the problem AND providing information such as “I have strong wifi; I’m connected to facebook; the device I’m playing on” — they suggest over and over again that I check my wifi, insure I’m connected to facebook, etc...then send me links to help out with those issues I previously stated were not the issue. I don’t know if they don’t want to take responsibility for reimbursement or replacing lost stuff; if they don’t understand what I’ve written; or they don’t have the skills to help. If nothing else, one would think they’d want to work with the customer to resolve these issues. Currently game play erratically begins to move in “slow motion”. I wrote to them about this issue...I wonder what their response will be? Tongue in cheek....😖
Game is locking... losing money
by player issues on 2020/07/03 01:13
My game is locking. I see the screen to play put when I touch the screen ....... Nothing. I have to turn off my iPad lose a life to reset. At level 635 this game has gotten finicky, sticky and not fun to play...at times this game is frustrating when you know you can never get rid of the items totaling 400 pieces in 30 moves unless you spend money. I know it’s always about the money.. I put this game down 4 years ago... and I thought things would be different I’ve spent a couple of hundred dollars and I’ve wised up... I’m done. I like the alleged competition you’ve made me think I am having with others... but in actuality I could have paid my way to first place... not rocket science. I’m like an autistic.... I like watching the game pieces fall and explode... but other than that it does not take away my frustration... but you ask...why do I keep coming back... I ask myself that same question - time to find another game. With over 1000 levels maybe you can bring more winning of free stuff to the game. Unless you are making enough money the way it is. Understandable
Harder than it needs to be
by fwitzie on 2019/08/18 15:15
This is a very fun game and I have enjoyed it very much until I have reached level 307 which I cannot get past it just keeps letting the witch win no matter what I do I don’t feel a game she have to be so hard that it takes all the fun out of it which is what this does now I’m beside myself I’m going back and redoing all the boards that I was able to pass before . I don’t know what to do please really can’t you change this up a bit games are supposed to be fun not make you aggravated and miserable the graphics are so cute so colorful so happy I still don’t understand completely how to play the game because there’s not directions anywhere really I want to get past level 307 without having to buy something with real money what is the trick??? The lifeline feature hasn’t worked at all on this board either. I keep telling ZYNGA about this but still nothing. I know they want you to spend $$. But I know someone who completed this whole game & didn’t pay a cent. COME ON ZYNGA. FIX THIS ANNOYING GLITCH ALREADY OR IM GONE.
Not getting any help from support and unable to move from level 615 and on to next chapter
by AidenKalin1121 on 2017/11/24 16:48
I have had similar issues to other people who have posted here. I have been double billed multiple times, their response was i must not remember and they add the times up on one bill to present. However the ones i showed i was charged within seconds of the first purchase. The latest issues are glitches when you try to use power ups and the games taking the power up and giving you no credit. Very slow on getting the release of colored blocks. But that is no where as bad as the issue i have now where i can’t move on. I have completed level 615 and i am not able to load new content. It shows me the download new content, it starts to attempt, then flashes and nothing ever happens. I can only go back and play other levels. Guess my time with this game is done. Will not support the company as i have received little to no help when emailing. All i was told was to force close app. Done and done times 10. Have latest version and restarted my phone several times. May not work with Apple IOS system so beware before you start buying anything from this company.
Disappointed with the updates
by Sorceress531 on 2019/09/13 02:29
Yesterday (5/7/19) I noticed the daily gold was missing from the game. So, I uninstalled and reinstalled the game, hoping it would refresh and be available. First disappointment, seeing the game could only be played in portrait mode. I have my IPad attached to a keyboard case, making it difficult to play in portrait mode. Secondly, I see that the 3 golds we received daily is no longer available. I contacted support, and the support person didn’t appear to understand what I was talking about. After many back and forth emails, she asked me where these gold coins appeared. I took a screenshot, and edited it to show her. She insisted I was talking about the Watch Now lives. I wrote back and explained further, noting that it wasn’t the Watch Now for the 3 additional moves. I have even seen that gold is received daily once you are connected to facebook. As it seems now, if you need gold to do anything, it has to be purchased. I’ve reached level 2316, so I know for a fact we got the 3 golds everyday. If this isn’t corrected, Zynga will probably be losing quite a few users.
Still needs work
by Hogie Dogie on 2018/02/23 04:53
Update: Level 1268 ...... Butterflies are absolutely worthless. They don’t complete their attack. Having an awful time getting past this level, & this time I refuse to spend more money that I don’t have ! Can you please fix this? 😖😖😖 Hi again, I did the update as suggested & now I am NOT getting the heart or the box with all the goodies. PLEASE FIX THIS. Thanks At first the game is entertaining, but the further up you go in levels, the fun starts to turn into frustration. For example: Not enough moves in order to finish a level When the scare crow makes his entrance, if there are MORE than 1 leaving the board, it only computes as one. At one point I had 3 leaving at the same time. I got jipped out of 2. The same if 2 leave the board at once, it only gives you the credit for 1. I realize the game is programmed to make money, but even when spending coins, it's still not enough to finish the level....eh? There should be coins given at the completion of each level. Even if it's just 2 or 3. That way, it gives an incentive to continue on, even if a level needs repeating several times to finish. At first, we can get another life by watching an advert. But those get far & few in between as well. Also, there are times when a level eats up more moves than it should. The wait time for accumulating more lives is too long. Hey techs, fix these issues, & this game will be spot on! Thanks.
Very expensive game to play!

All that being said, the game is beautifully put together the music is wonderful, and it CAN be a lot of fun.
It was fun while it lasted.

I’ve been playing this game for a couple years and think I’ve come to the end of the yellow brick road! As with most online games you end making purchases if you want to keep moving up, I won’t even mention how much I’ve spent on this game, just say maybe too much. So now as I’ve reached Level 2655 there are no more levels available. I have two choices, play Land of Oz Legends or Glinda verses the Wicked Witch. Unfortunately it has become nearly impossible to keep advancing to next levels so I end up repeating the same games, thus the game has become boring now and I’m losing interest. I’ve managed to make it to a Master player, however I don’t see much incentive to maintain it, as there is no way I’m putting more money into conquering these near impossible levels. Plus the game has made changes where the tickets you earn have become useless as there is no longer options to use them on anything. I don’t know if the developers are planning more on creating more levels beyond 2655, but if they don’t, I’m afraid I may need to find a new game. Let’s see.
Please fix issues
by HodiJuan on 2020/09/03 13:57
I, like so many others LOVE this game and play it daily. However, I can’t even play the game. If I click on the add to get the free stuff, my screen goes black and the only option I have is to close out the app and start back up. So annoying. And now, today, I can’t even play at all. Even ignoring the ads, if I start playing, I can’t even play a complete life before the app crashes & closes, causing me to lose that life. Please fix. Also, I am equally frustrated as the others about how the game no longer gives hardly any rewards for play at all. ie., axes, butterflies, etc And when I go through the effort to create a butterfly, it’s not even on “my side”. It doesn’t even help me anymore. It’s almost a waste of time to create it. Please consider going back to like it was before. You don’t have to give excessive rewards for play, I get it, you want to make money, but you could go back to at least giving SOME rewards for play.
Labor of Love
by theBogman on 2018/02/08 20:36
There are dozens of "match three" type games for your phone, but this one is a cut above. It's evident that for several people on the development team, this must have been a true labor of love. The affection and attention to detail lavished upon this game honors not only the classic movie, but the generations of fans for whom "The Wizard of Oz" is beloved, almost sacred. The paintings are exceptional-- lovingly capturing not only the likenesses of all the characters (even minor parts), but the light, rich technicolor beauty of Oz. The producers make wonderful use of the soundtrack from the movie, featuring all the right themes in the right places. There are also audio clips of the actors and a treasure trove of bonus trivia material you can unlock along your way to The Emerald City. Kudos to everyone who worked on this game. If you are half the fan of "The Wizard of Oz" that they seem to be, you will definitely love this game.
Game used to be fun but no longer!
by MydogBanjo on 2019/09/17 21:22
I have been playing this game for a few years and enjoyed beating levels and receiving my daily goodies. I don't have Facebook so I'm not sure what is missing from that end. Every time there is an update it seems to get worse. Now I can't even use my 2000 tickets for anything except to buy "moments" who cares about them? I used them in the past to boost my score when winning a level. It's very difficult to get gold as where you used to get three a day for watching a dopey video- no longer available maybe one or two if it's a lucky day. The game freezes and kicks you out which is annoying to say the least, but when you spend 9 coins and win the level and it boots you it's extremely irritating! I have deleted this game three or more times and don't know why I'm such a pathetic sucker to reinstall it, I guess I'm hoping things will go back to how they used to be. Portrait mode stinks and the weekly promotion or demotion stink as well, please listen to your players and revert back to how it used to be!
Disappointed in new pay-to-play “seasons” feature
by PRD1234 on 2021/01/29 03:37
I have played this game every day for almost three years. The graphics and themes are wonderful. The levels are challenging without being impossible. New levels and features kept the game fresh. The options for in-app purchases was always there if you wanted to advance a bit more quickly (which I sometimes did) however if you wanted to just be persistent and play harder to advance you could still compete in the game. But this month the developers decided to change the playing field and make it necessary to pay a monthly fee (season pass). Oh you can still play without a season pass if you can’t pay the $5 a month but you don’t get any where! So after 3 years of daily play, I am saying goodbye. It’s just not fun anymore now that the playing field is no longer level. Too bad they couldn’t offer 2 versions- one for those who don’t mind paying a monthly subscription and another for those who can only afford the occasional in-app purchase.
Happy notes
by judymassage on 2019/09/10 04:54
I have been playing this game for over 2 years just about when it came out. I found it after a big life change that had made me very sad. Then as I played it the music started to make me happy again. The music is so close to the movie that you feel like you are apart of the movie. You are helping Dorothy scarecrow lion tin man and Toto get back to Kansas. The graphics are smooth and amazing. 5 stars for sure But. Be patient some levels are very hard. But the game will give you a break after a while I am now on level 1854 Level 1850 took me 2 weeks until the algorithms set up so I could win and move on to the next level. My position went from 2nd to 26 out of 29. It’s all in the designers purpose The algorithms Ya. It gets very frustrating and I stop playing for 10-40 days sometimes. Why play a “game” that is ridiculously programmed I feel frustrated So I take long breaks some times I delete the app and make room for other games or read books and do things with my friends and family then when I come back the algorithms see how long I’ve been gone and they set it up for me to win Oh. Ya. Designers, how much longer until you being back the 3 gold a day after watching a video for each gold?
Rip Off!!
by Mdeleo01 on 2020/08/14 17:57
The latest scam is the one that caused me to delete the game forever. I’ve spent hundreds of dollars. I’ve been a loyal player. I was on level 1735. But your sneaky “open the piggy bank at 75 coins” scam pushed me over the edge. The game advertised you could open and earn 75 coins when your piggy bank reached this level (within a limited period of time). So OF COURSE I spent money and pushed through to achieve this. And guess what happens when you get to 75 coins? You can only open it if you pay $6.99!!! What? Ever heard of bait and switch? Misleading or false advertising? Sharp practice? I am DONE. Friends, AVOID this game. They well and truly only want your money. They have officially become as bad and greedy as Candy Crush. I used to play this game because it was actually playable and not Candy Crush-a game where you could only advance by buying add ins. Because of the high playability, I did spend real money. But of course over time the (free) playability has gone down and the prices have gone up. I’m done. Shame on you developers for this latest misleading scam!
If you don't pay then you face a rigged game
by Stoliman on 2019/02/15 17:02
I don't understand these supposedly free games.... Sure they are free but the more you play it without any "in app purchases" then the more you'll see the game is rigged. I mean really how many times can one get within one play of clearing the board... Especially if you have many moves and are getting close to finishing a level. Take notice of just how "random" the pieces fall. You will see that the more moves you have left and are close to completing a level that these random pieces will not fall as random as they should. And if you don't think that this can be rigged then notice that of you do complete a level with say 10 moves left those moves will be cleared by adding then to the board increasing your score.... But if you'll notice that when these moves are added that the falling pieces will fall in such a way as to not keep making matches. In other words the developer can dictate just how these pieces can fall. Hence rigging the game. Yea it's just a game and yea it's just a free game but time to delete this one and move on to the next.
I am beginning to not like your game
by smallville rick on 2020/04/16 22:28
Mostly because you should have a chance to wi every time you play but I’ve become convinced that I win when you want me to. You watch commercials for extra turns misty comes when you don’t have a chance to win. The butterflies never go where you need them to go. One game I had all my colors but needed to get rid of flowers to win but the butterflies never went to the flowers rather just kept going to the spots to drop the scarecrow even thought I didn’t need for that to drop. What drops after you take something away is never what you need except when you let me win the game. So I will play your game but if it continues as before I will not watch your ads and soon may stop playing a game up until now mostly enjoyed playing! I am done. What was once a game I loved to play now I don’t it’s rigged for you to lose until the time when they want you to win maybe all they want is for you to BUY the free turns and when the realize you won’t they they let you win so you’ll keep playing but enough is enough good by
STILL takes away moves
by Kuuipo0806 on 2017/11/25 16:21
I am on level 1265..how is it that I’m still losing moves when I go to the next screen? I would end the first screen with 5 moves left and on the next screen it would only reflect one left. Before it was taking only one move away NOW it is 3-4?! I identified this flaw already when I was on level 1245 and instead of it being fixed it has gotten worse. While playing this game, I've noticed that it takes away a move while switching to the next screen. Specifically, in levels like 1245 where you clear a path for Dorothy. I spend a lot of time (and unfortunately money) playing this game. It may be time to take a lo g break from it till they fix this bug. Wish I caught this before I kept putting more money into it.
Fun game BUT ...
by cheesehead51 on 2018/08/13 16:52
I have been playing for a year now. It has now gotten to the point that if I don’t pay money I will not get past certain levels. No rewards pop up any longer. I have been stuck on a level for weeks now. Constantly I’m left with one item to clear before I’m out of moves. I suspect this is by design hoping I’ll bite and buy moves. I’ve done that in the past but no more. I don’t play for several days out of frustration, only to get back into the same vicious cycle. Other games give you some assistance to welcome you back to a game. I’d like to just delete it and hopefully start all over again; at least you’ll get the potential to move past a level in a reasonable amount of play. Almost done with this one.
Short changes your progress
by symonsayz on 2019/07/26 13:43
Love the game however when you clear off the board needed to reach your goal to win the game I notice on several occasions your numbers or credits are not counted, example, your goal is to clear off red poppy’s, so as you keep eliminating them your goal keeps getting smaller and smaller what I find is many times you clear them off the board but your goal stays the same, example, 10 poppy’s to clear, you eliminate say 3 and your goal number stays the same, it should be down to 7, so it’s rigged in their favor to get you to spend money, I will not be tricked into paying, sorry but if this was on the up and up I would rate it 5 stars and maybe spend money to play, but not when the game is rigged
Will bleed you dry
by TRIP470 on 2017/12/22 02:35
Game has great sounds and graphics. Ive been playing for yrs now and notice that I'm unable to advance without having to make in app purchases continually to advance. Ive played many match 3 games but the gameplay has now become completely stressful, draining and not fun at all. No other ways are provided to give you coins except through payment. It amazes me that most developers have created gaming apps that really aren't games but a form of gambling....where you are constantly paying to play. I don't mind anyone making a profit but be honest. These are your customers. I know big business has kinda thumbed their nose at the consumer believing their gameplay is borderline addictive behavior or disassociation “playing” out and so they have no interest in anything but their own greed. Not only is this nation crumbling but the entire world is suffering bcause of this mindset. I wont say no one should play just use caution. Soon enough you will see its truly not a game just a gambling apparatus.
I really love this game....
by kevin's cassie on 2019/05/10 14:52
But, I've tried the newer version and I have to say that the only thing I would change is that the character coming out needs to be a little bit slower. I'm up to level 191 and when the character, who this level is the Scarecrow, comes out to throw the Poppies, he is way too fast to keep up with. It's like "Here comes the Poppies---whoosh, whoosh". I guess that I can get used to it, but it's going to take awhile, I guess. Keep up the great work. It's a great game!!! Friday, May 10th, One other change I'd make is that you should change it to where the horizonal screen comes up. I definitely DO NOT LIKE it in portrait screen. My IPad runs smoother when I play games in horizonal more. Judging from what I've been reading in the other posts, no one likes the portrait screen either!!! PLEASE CHANGE IT!!!
One of the best games on the App Store!
by Ememememeem on 2019/01/18 05:49
Im always looking for new games, and I usually sit through hours of ads a day while playing games. There are most often ads before, during, and after games. This game caught my attention because there are no ads ever, especially between levels, so the game flows smoothly. The levels are relevant to the story & movie of Wizard of Oz in an amazing and cute way- dare I say this is better than candy crush! All the little details not only give reference to the original movie & story, but each level keeps you interested and the animations are sooo life like, and spot on. I could go on and on, but you should just try it for yourself! Fun & not too easy, the right challenge!! Xo
Great game
by LaLa 19880106 on 2017/12/02 18:50
I love the game however, I’ve had multiple technical issues with this game! I have been in the middle of competitions and my progress completely deleted. I have finished all tiers on events and my progress has been deleted. When I email the company all they do is ensure that their developers are hard at work to resolve the issues. I have never experienced the customer service being rude, however, they are not sympathetic. They do not like to redeem your purchases or the items that you lost from the glitches in the game. I have contacted them multiple times and I have been told the same thing over and over... force close the game or delete it and reinstall it. I’m not stuck at level 555 because it won’t download my new episode. I’m done with this game! Its frustrating probably because I like the game so much! If you had fixed these issues sooner, I wouldn’t be deleting it!
Sad, Disappointed & DELETING✌️
by Mrs.Alonzo on 2017/10/07 05:00
I really enjoy playing this game. It's my little escape at night before bed and it helps me clear my head from the day. Why do you need so much FREAKIN storage!!!! But what I can't get past is why would a simple fun game cheat me out of points I obviously earned? Or why when I have two more turns and make a move, suddenly I have no more turns?...Why cheat ppl out of fun. When you cut corners or what ever the term might be for a game app, you take the fun out of it. I've been playing this game for some time now and I'm comfortable with this game. I enjoy it but not so much that I'm disregarding my responsibilities. But when I'm being cheated out of the satisfaction of winning because the game decides that I don't get the full points for a turn I clearly should have received, I question why I'm giving this game so much of my precious sleep time....I'm very saddened with the decorum of how this game is being controlled.
Love the game, but…
by sammbrasil on 2017/10/06 00:52
Updated review*****… I still love this game, and it is the game I play the most. But it can be very frustrating! I was currently on tier four of the "Butterfly Bonanza" and just got a notice that the game was being updated and had to reload. When the game restarted all my points were gone and it started me over again with nothing on tier one!!! 😕 I love this game… And enjoy playing it some every day. I do get frustrated with the daily rewards. I play all the way up to day 20 and then instead of getting the Grand prize… I start back at day one. I don't know what the prize is supposed to be… Because I have never seen it. The battle matches are now two hours and that is too long. I also would love to be able to choose when to use my unlimited time bonuses.
This game used to be fun.
by Wiz of Oz player 1234 on 2021/01/08 03:20
I’m currently on level 3031, so yeah, I’ve played this game a lot and for a very long time. I wrote a review recently but must’ve got overlooked or deleted. In recent times I’ve experienced “glitches” I guess. Rewards for getting the same item/colors in a row, such as 5 to get a crystal ball. Many times after lining up the items in the game, my reward I would’ve won just “disappears”. Also have had many times where the “it’s a twister” action goes into effect, at a time when either I still had moves, and it’s done that to me when I was all set to win the level. This game cheats. Also used to be able to earn gold coins, multiple crystal balls, on a regular basis. Haven’t been able to earn those in the last couple of years. I’ve written the makers of the game and of course no response. I’m ready to quit the game and delete the app. As I stated in my title, this game used to be fun. Now it’s not even fun anymore. The levels are too hard and they arbitrarily give you not enough moves to defeat levels. Seems like they just want you to spend money on “prize packages” that include coins and stuff so you can win levels a little bit easier. Well sorry Wizard of Oz, I’m not gonna give you any of my money. I’m not a sucker. I’m over this game and like I said, ready to delete the app. And I hope LOTS of people read this.
Update
by gert1955 on 2019/03/18 15:34
I don’t know why when it was updated that you can now only play in portrait mode, before you had the option of playing portrait or landscape, please change it back! Another issue is when you reach higher levels it’s so much harder to get boosts or ANYTHING, then when you have a problem with the game freezing just when you win the level and now loose all the boosts and coins you have lost on that level and you contact support they take forever getting back to you and reimbursing your coins/boosts, one time it took them over two weeks to reimburse mine so I had nothing to play with and I refused to purchase because I should have still had some to play with and that’s exactly what they wanted me to do, and they act like your lying about the game freezing and you loosing your coins/boosts when I sent them pictures and they can look back and see exactly what you were playing and how much you lost.
My favorite
by Tgrldy on 2018/09/15 02:12
I have played many match three games. I started this one when it first came out and been playing on it for two years I have never had any major technical issues and it is the first game I have actually spent any money on, not just because I wanted to advance to the next levels, but because it was a really good game and it seem like a good investment. they have change things that I wanted changed and I did not have to complained about, I guess I have everybody else to do that for me. You all keep up the good work I love your game I love you can play even when you haven’t come up with new levels.I will always play this game unless for some reason you stop making it.
Just another "Free" game you'll pay a lot to play
by Roo and Moof on 2018/02/02 09:11
Fake ratings- they try to trick players into clicking a "5 star rating" button that looks like a "continue playing" button appearing after a level is completed. This is nothing special, different, or exciting, and the music is thoroughly annoying after a short amount of time. The trivia nuggets are commonly known- huge let down. Minimum purchase of extra moves is $4.99 (for all those levels that are calibrated to be just out of reach for the number of moves allotted and tasks assigned you in a level). You'll never actually finish the game. I keep coming close, then they add more levels. It's a waste of time. Also malfunctions where items freeze, always manages to deprive me of a turn or malfunctions when I'm close to winning a hard level, not when I'm behind. Also deprives of power-ups and other cheats when I'm close to winning- save your cash, and don't start.
Fun as a time killer.
by Hinterlander on 2018/07/10 02:49
This is technically my second review, an update... while I support developers and have paid into games like bloons 4 and 5, I will not hand any money over for this game. I’ve read too many other reviews where they double charge with no refund, and I just don’t trust the company anymore. I’ve noticed the wizard and butterflies are close to useless, I thought they were there to help. I had one ice shard left, combined two butterflies twice (that makes 6) they both went after stars for some reason, then I dropped two wizards and their help was everything but that last ice shard. Really?!? Happens quite often. Level 503...I release a beam that shoots through a rust block and nothing happens, then a butterfly released by the beam hit the rust block and again nothing happened, the rust block took my yellow lollipop. Really?!? That happens quite a bit. The butterflies at that point are useless as they hit things that were hit by beams or bombs. Aaaand then I’ve seen on multiple occasions the combination of blocks to form bombs, beams, etcetera and they never materialize. Sneaky. If that’s what you have to do to make money then count me out. I’ll play, however I’ll give my money to other games that aren’t that inconsistent. Be careful with your money and if you don’t mind that stuff then by all means spend on the game, me? Nope. Bit
Off to See The Wizard!!!
by Cheerful giver on 2018/01/17 16:10
Very fun and so very addicting I love the animation and the music... I would've given 5 stars , there are still some alot of glitches... Game Freezing up, loosing levels, things of that nature... Gets annoying ... Even being double billed... I love this game... I really do not want to delete it, but I’m going to have to because the only option to buy power ups are $4.99 packages... that’s absolutely ridiculous! it should be a $.99 option at least! it’s ridiculous that you have to pay $4.99 every time you want to buy a power up or advance...why it keeps having glitches I have no idea because customer Service never ever responds to anything I have sent emails I have inbox them on messenger never nothing back no response unacceptable!!!! I truly do believe that the wicked witch runs this app!
Creators purpose
by spencersluvd on 2017/10/25 19:57
A game should be something to just relax and play for fun or simple entertainment however that doesn’t seem to be the case. I can’t believe I’m writing this review let alone contacted this game support. It takes them more than a day to respond, and the when they do it’s the same suggestions every time. I’ve done all the troubleshooting they suggest and it doesn’t work. I completed level 795 and agreed to download the next set of levels, it said completed and now won’t open. It doesn’t seem like the game support wants to fix the issue, if I have to delete the game I won’t reinstall! What’s the point of the hassle when there’s a lot of other issues throughout the game. It seems like the game wants to get people to buy stuff or the game doesn’t work. It’s just a game but they make it an issue!
Disappointing
by DWagner56 on 2020/03/06 20:21
I love this game except for the Emerald City Challenge. According to the instructions for this I should be 2 levels up than what I am. Supposedly one is supposed to be promoted to the next level if you finish “above the promotion zone” Every week I have not only finished “ above promotion zone” I have also finished in 1st place. No promotion & no rewards. This challenge was a waste of time. There seems to be a glitch is this part of the game. Otherwise this is my favorite game, but this issue has pretty much ruined the fun. The above issues were fixed a long time ago & I now love the Emerald City Challenge, this latest version has some very irritating problems. 1st: After I finish a level the screen goes black. I can still hear the game but have to turn it off & restart in order to continue to play. This has happened over & over in the past week since the update. 2nd: Good grief! Why all the ads!!! And some of them loop over & over and have to be manually turned off! There always have been a lot of ads, but this is getting ridiculous! I REALLY LIKE the game but these problems make it less fun and more of a waste of time. I will delete the game if these issues aren’t fixed.
Game play
by sassy06069 on 2018/08/03 21:49
This game has excellent graphics, it’s fun and challenging but there are a couple of things that I don’t really like. Like when you have a globe on the board and you use one of the other special characters or boosts, and the globe is in the line it clears, it takes the globe out. I realize it gives you points for it, but I’d rather be able to use the globe! Also, when Glenda’s manic is full, I’d rather be able to use it when I choose to use it, instead of at the end of whatever round it gets full on. A good portion of the time it goes to waste because I’m nowhere close to winning the round. Sure it’s helped me win a round several times, but its something the player works for, so we should be able to use it when we need it most!
Game has issues
by Dotster66 on 2020/02/03 08:59
This is the best match three I've played. It's challenging and fun. The problem is that I have had to delete it and reinstall several times because it gets stuck and will not load the game. This is very frustrating. If I didn't enjoy playing so much, I would delete it permanently. I have played this game for years and still found it challenging and fun. However, I have been stuck on level 1495 for months. I don’t know how to move the hot air balloons They have moved a few times, but I don’t know why, so I don’t know what I’m doing right or wrong. I’ve tried to find the answer but haven’t gotten any information. I used to play every day but now I go weeks without playing because it’s just not fun. If someone could just tell me how to move the balloons, I would appreciate it.
Just as rigged as all the others
by Quickening on 2017/11/29 10:16
You get to a certain point where you’re forced to use boosters to get anywhere. And if you don’t have any, you’re forced to shell out money to buy some or else get stuck on the same level over and over and over.... There are also “normal” and “hard” levels but honestly there is hardly any difference between most of them. They’re ALL hard unless you’re willing to spend ridiculous amounts of real money to advance. Screw that. They do offer “help” every once in while in the form of Glinda appearing to offer three extra lives and some boosters, but she always seems to appear when none of that will actually make a difference. If I need at LEAST seven more moves to finish a level and she only offers three, HOW is that supposed to be helping me? I was hoping this game would be different than all the others, but it’s just another Candy Crush. Frustrating and pointless.
Are you kidding
by ( Salty22 ) on 2018/08/25 14:37
I have been playing this game for a very long time. I do enjoy this game yes at times it gets frustrating. When the game was done we could play 5 more times if we bought the extra turns for 9 coins. Now to play the extra games it jump from 9 coins for 5 extra plays to 100 coins for 5 plays. Are you kidding !!! That is ridiculous either go back to 9 and truthfully it should be lower then 9 for its only 5 plays but okay ! I’m Very disappointed. Not sure how long I will keep this game. I’m back to rate this game again after a couple of days playing since the last update and yes I lowered the ratings When I first started playing almost year and some ago I gave the game 5 stars, and then it went down to 3 stars - and now within a couple of days it’s at 2 stars. Please just put the game back before this last update.
