Wiz is an improved version of the "Wizard's Castle" game from 1979.

Wiz is similar to a text adventure game. The game takes place in a subterranean castle of 8 times 8 times 8 rooms. The rooms and its contents are randomly created for each game. There are vendors you can trade with, mystical pools which can give or take away power, warps to far parts of the castle, numerous monsters to fight and assorted treasures to find. The following commands are available:

H/ELP N/ORTH S/OUTH E/AST W/EST U/P D/OWN
L/OOK I/NVENTORY M/AP ST/ATUS A/TTACK F/LARE LA/AMP
O/PEN R/EAD G/AZE T/ELEPORT DR/INK SE/LL B/UY
BR/IBE Q/UIT

The gameplay as explained in Wiz

A long time ago, in the age of the old universal empire the mighty wizard ZOT lived in a large subterranean castle, collecting a lot of fabulous treasures during his long life. Feeling the sources of his vital power draining away, he created a great orb of power the *ORB OF ZOT*. To hide it from the cretins of the surface beyond, he hired a group of esurient monsters to guard the *ORB OF ZOT*. From that time onward, many a bold youth has ventured into the castle, loosing his life in cruel and unimaginable ways.

Wiz has several features that are not present in the original game. The improved Wiz game has detailed room descriptions instead of just the description of the room content. The original game restricts the user to few options in battle and trade situations. The improved version uses the command interface in such situations.
