When Dorothy Gale and the Wizard of Oz vanished, the Kingdom of Oz was struck by dark magic and it was up to Queen Ozma who used a magical pool to summon someone who can save it. Ophelia Shen had stowed away with her cat upon a cargo ship's lifeboat which got caught in a storm. It would be assumed that the ship made it safely but the storm disloged her lifeboat as she found herself in Oz. Her cat was unconcious but magical crystals transformed her pet into a talking crystal cat. Upon arriving, she encounters Winged Monkies who attacked her but Ozma from afar guides her through a Magic Picture in defeating them. After this, a mysterious wicked witch appears and steals the cat while claiming Ozma is a false Queen. Ophelia heads to the Emerald City and meets with Ozma in person who tells her that she needs to get the aid of Oz's legendary heroes in order to defeat the newly rescurrected Wicked Witch of the East.
Each playable character has various attacks to choose from based on mana. There are four types of attacks which vary on effectiveness on certain enemies. After winning a battle, a certain ability can be leveled up to be more powerful. Also ablities can be leveled up or earned through throwing special coins into the Pool of Wonders in the Emerald City.
(first four bios based on info given by Nexon with additional notes)
- Ophelia Shen: Orphaned and living on the war-torn streets of South Asia (unclear which country), she vowed to escape and fight for a new life. She stowed away inside a cargo ship heading towards parts unknown. Never did she dream of embarking upon an adventure that would transport her to the mysterious dark lands of Oz. Newly transformed, armed, and empowered by unknown Oz, she is thrown into battle alongside legendary heroes and her constant companion, the Crystal Cat.
- Scarecrow: He has come a long way from his early days guarding cornfields in Munchkin Country. After many adventures alongside his friends, the once-ruler of Oz dedicated years to mastering magic under the tutelage of Glinda, Ozma, and the Wizard of Oz. Faced now with the encroaching darkness and missing some of his dearest friends, he seeks the source of evil and will defeat whatever awaits him.
- Tin Man: Steady, stalwart, fair, and just, Nick Chopper is Oz's shield and sword. Beloved by his people, he rules Winkie Country from his Tin Palace, but since the troubles began he once again raises his axe and sets out in defense of Ozites everywhere. In combat, he is single-minded, inevitably cutting down one foe after another while weathering even the most determined onslaught.
- Lion: With a roar that can be heard in even the farthest reaches of Oz, the King of the Beasts welcomes battle with his claws, teeth, and magical bracers. Fully aware (and perhaps somewhat haunted) by his cowardly past, he embraces bravado and aggression, sometimes recklessly, rather than succumb to fear. Regardless, he is a constant and loyal force for good to his friends. To the enemies of Oz, he is a deadly force of nature.
- Queen Ozma: The ruler of Oz through being hidden away aids Ophelia through the magic picture.
- Jinjur: After trying to gain control of the Emerald City long ago, she now uses her skills to control the Arena.
- Wicked Witch of the East: Brought back from the dead by dark forces, she resides in her sister's castle (unknown if she is back too) and controls the Flying Monkies.
- Shaggy Man and the Sawhorse: These two travel together and help alert those in the Emerald City of enemy advances which they can repell up to a certain point with a love magnet.
- Instead of the Princess title, Ozma is now considered a Queen.
- Like Ophelia, Dorothy was caught up in a storm on a ship and transported to Oz in Ozma of Oz
- The game makes some references to the 1939 film such as a red brick circle in Munchkin Town along with other things mentioned in dialogue.
- There are unmanned red hot air balloons flying about the land which is a reference to the Wizard's own hot air balloon.
- The Crystal Cat is similar to the Glass Cat.
- Paintings depicting members of the development team appear in some of the room levels.
