Zynga launched Wizard of Oz: Magic Match on mobile. Licensed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Zynga’s latest match-three game takes players to the land of Oz, where they’ll help Dorothy travel the yellow brick road by completing level-based puzzles.

Each level has a different goal to complete within a limited number of moves. For instance, one level may ask players to collect symbols of specific colors in bulk, while another may ask players to clear crystal squares from the board by making matches on top of them, and so on.

As players make matches with four or more symbols, or matches in T or L shapes, they’ll create power-ups capable of clearing whole rows or columns of symbols, or clearing every symbol of a specific color, and so on. Gamers can also purchase power-ups like the Tin Man’s Axe and Magic Beams, and they can manually activate these when they need extra help to complete a stage.

In addition, in some stages, players can make matches with special star symbols to charge Glinda’s Magic Wheel, which may help them complete the stage if they run out of moves.

In a statement, Mark Turmell, senior creative director at Zynga, commented:
