LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Psygnosis, Limited, a division of Sony Electronic Publishing Company, announced today the release of the video game, Wiz N' Liz(TM) for the Sega Genesis(TM) system.

Shown for the first time at the winter Consumer Electronics Show (booth 6509), Wiz N' Liz has been designed in the tradition of Psygnosis' award-winning computer and video game Lemmings(TM). Like Lemmings, Wiz N' Liz has been designed to appeal to a broad audience, one that reaches beyond the primary audience of adolescent boys. High-quality animation and fast and challenging gameplay make Wiz N' Liz an appealing video game. It is a one- or two-player game with multiple soundtracks, 360 pixel/second scrolling for smooth animation and 56 levels of colorful graphics. The game incorporates hidden levels, puzzles and bonus games all designed to provide players with a stimulating challenge.

Wiz N' Liz is available immediately. With its non-violent gameplay and design for broad appeal, Wiz N' Liz has been rated GA (appropriate for all audiences) by the Videogame Rating Council.

Psygnosis, Limited is an international developer and publisher of entertainment software for cartridge, floppy disk and CD-ROM formats. The company has developed and published more than 100 titles since its founding in 1985, including the award-winning Lemmings, and Microcosm(TM), the first title in a new category of CD-ROM games called "interactive cinema." Psygnosis was acquired by Sony (NYSE: SNE) in 1993 and is a division of Sony Electronic Publishing Company. The company is based in Liverpool, England, with North American headquarters in Cambridge, Mass., and additional offices in England, France and Germany.
