The game was later ported to the Sega Mega Drive/Sega Genesis and released on October 10, 1993. You can see the main character from The Killing Game Show, which was also produced by Raising Hell Software, during the Sega intro logo.
Wiz'n'Liz takes place in the magical land of Pum (which the game admits is a silly name), where a group of wabbits have been kidnapped (the game doesn't say by who or what), and it's the job of two wizards - Wiz and Liz - to wescue them (hence the full name Wiz'n'Liz, the frantic wabbit wescue).
The game takes place on a series of levels, each divided into eight worlds. Each world has a distinct graphical style and music, but the basic gameplay remains the same. Wiz and/or Liz must run through the landscape collecting the wabbits, against a strict time limit. To win, the player must collect floating letters which appear when a wabbit is collected, to spell out various words. Once collected, the player then must wescue all remaining wabbits on the level, collecting fruit, stars and clocks to increase the time limit. The limit starts at one minute and is only restarted when the player character dies. This time limit can however be extended by collecting a glowing orange orb which appears in the last ten seconds of a countdown and gives 30 seconds of bonus time.
Various kinds of fruit can be mixed in a cauldron, and depending on the fruit, the effect can be bonus points; a minigame; a weird graphical effect; a bit of silliness (such as declaring a "Game Over" and killing your character, only to put them back and sheepishly say "Only joking..."); turning the wabbits wed, bloo, or gween; or "Absolutely Nothing".
The Bonus game was featured in the original mid-90s run of competitive gaming television show Games World (broadcast on Sky One in the UK) as one of the challenges. Player took turns to play the Bonus game of collecting the bloo wabbits, and the highest scorer won that particular challenge. The game was not featured when the show was revived in 2000, largely because the Sega Mega Drive had become obsolete.
