Mr. Wiz

Guide Mr. Wiz around the garden to eat the cherries whilst avoiding the evil gremlins.

If the gremlins are trapped or very frustrated they may eat an apple or dig their own passage to get at you.

1,000 points can be gained by eating the magic mushroom, but beware... this is the home of the gremlins and makes them permanently furious!

After use, the crystal ball takes time to recharge. When ready for use, the ball will flash.

An extra Wizard is awarded for every 10,000 point scored.
