It’s humorous, it’s got vehicles, robots, an invention system, branching story lines depending on the character, and more. 8 playable characters including 4 on screen at once. It was ahead of it’s time in the game play department.
It will make you laugh, it’s got depth to it’s game play, and it’s downright FUN! Any 16-bit era fans owe it to themselves to give this game a go.

User Review Information
This is Wozzome! (I'M SO SORRY)Reviewed By: Maeson on 25 Feb 2015
When I discovered a classic j-rpg where you could choose a main charater, and one was a Wizard (Which is kind of rare, developers prefeer guys with swords, it seems), I had to try it. After some trouble with applying the translation patch (My fault) I got it to work.
And then I saw the game is pretty good, far better than I expected.
I think this could be somewhat compared to games like Final Fantasy IV, very classic and simple, yet this one has some added features that make it stand out.
There are lots of things I like, like how magic spells improve over time, the decent ammount of vehicles/robots/items/equipment you can build (Mammoth Tank is an awesome concept, you can feel like your own Power Ranger), the characters, without being very deep, are charming enough to become memorable and there is quite a bit of variety of places to go.
Music is decent, it has some cool themes like the vehicle Battle theme, or Balaam first theme. I missed more catchy tunes, but it’s not bad, and i’ve seen much much worse, that’s for sure.
Difficulty is…rather mixed. It keeps you on your toes, sometimes it becomes kind of easy (Chung kicking ass with AoE Spells in one turn) and others the bosses are a real pain in the ass.
My only grip with the game is that it’s a little slow sometimes, like magic taking a very long time to “level up”, or that the characters walk slowly and the encounter rate is kind of high.
Tip: Go to the first town, Journey, and fight weak enemies, it doesn’t matter what you fight as long as you win battles for magic to improve.
Overall, Wozz is a rather unique and recommended game if you like turn based rpg’s. If you don’t you should be patient because you may enjoy the good parts.
The translation is great, I didn’t see any error or anything annoying, and it made me chuckle several times. It does a great job for the type of game it is.
Pretty good stuff.
PS: By the way, i’m the only one that found surprising how you can move in 8 directions?
