    Haven't played this in a long time. It was in a TG decathlon about 10 years ago and my score wasn't much better then.

    The 2 player 3 life record on the arcade version (1.3M) was set during my first trip to Funspot in 2002. (Oh no not another bloody Funspot story. Give it a rest already fer Christ sake.)
    I walked around a corner after watching the WR get smashed on Burgertime to see a crowd 4 to 5 deep around Wizard of Wor. Would've been at least 30 people stood watching but you could've heard a pin drop. They came, they set the record and I don't think they ever returned.

    Is it just me or does this game seem to be Berzerk with Wizards? Never played it before so I could be just going off appearance only

    OK I did vaguely recall it being a Father and Son team that held the record. The date is wrong as per the TG database but I'm 100% sure this was done at Funspot on day 2 of the 2002 tournament which was May 31st. Google Wizard of Wor world record and you will find a post on the old TG from Robert Mruczek about the single player record being beaten that mentions him seeing the end of the 2 player record. That's because it was done live. If it was on tape he would've either seen none of it or the whole thing.

    Cut and paste from the TG website:

    [Points [2 Player Team, 3 Lives]

    Rules
    Dip Switch Bank:
    1-4 = OFF
    5 = ON
    6-8 = OFFNote: The above Dip Switches, are not only the FACTORY DEFAULT settings, but are also the correct Twin Galaxies Tournament Settings for this title;1 Credit = 3 Worriors, 2 Credit = 7 WorriorsBonus Worrior After Third DungeonSpecial Rules: This is a 2 Player ONLY Variation. Both players must start at the SAME time! The record is the sum of the 2 scores upon game completion.

    That being said I may have seen the 7 life record but both were done on the same day as far as I know.
