About the Game
Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return, a new video game companion to Summertime Entertainment’s 3D-animated musical film of the same name, is available now. Swept away from her home in Kansas once more, Dorothy and Toto must journey across the far-off, distant worlds of Oz to reach the Emerald City, teaming up with new friends and old to stop the mischievous Jester’s hold over the land in this fantastic adventure, available now on the Nintendo 3DS hand-held system. The Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return film opens nationwide on May 9, 2014 distributed by Clarius Entertainment.

Spanning thirty levels across five of Oz’s unique realms, Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return is a combo-stacking, tile-matching puzzle game developed by Black Lantern Studios. Tiles earn experience the more they’re used, and combining leveled-up tiles with consumable power-ups is critical to clearing zones, winning boss battles and securing legendary scores. Filled with charming characters and unlockable artwork from the movie, the game is accessible enough for younger gamers to complete, but hitting a three-emerald high score across the board will prove a fun challenge for all ages.

Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return is available for Nintendo 3DS and is rated E (Everyone) by the ESRB. For more information, please visit

My Take on the Game
This was a fun game with some great puzzles and adventures for you to go on with Dorothy and her friends. I liked the premise of the game and even though I had never seen the movie, the plot of the game itself was enjoyable and the action was engaging. Even though this said ages seven and up my youngest, who is 6.5, also enjoyed playing this and she found that it was not too difficult for her to keep up with. One of the things I liked most was that there were plenty of levels to explore and enjoy and each was just a little different than the rest which made the game fun and a bit challenging!
