    Sítio do Picapau Amarelo is a platform game developed and published by Tec Toy for the Sega Master System, released exclusively in Brazil. The game is based on the Brazilian novel series of the same name, which is commonly considered equivalent to "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz"' series for the Brazilian audience.

    Tectoy bet on the popularity of the series hoping to catch more attention of the infantile audience, similar to what they had previously done with Mônica no Castelo do Dragão and its "sequels", although their plan wasn't successful this time, mainly because it was released when the console was in a big decline, losing market to several other consoles.


    Everything was going fine in the farm until Tia Nastácia fell asleep due to a mysterious sickness. After Dr. Caramujo examined her, he told that there an antidote for this. But the problem is the fact that the ingredients are difficult to get. Pedrinho and Emília decided to find them.


    Game mode screen: first option is for two players.

    In Sítio do Picapau Amarelo you control either Pedrinho or Emília and two players can play alternating, although they have to share the controller connected to port 1. It's a very simple platform game on which 1 attacks and 2 jumps; pressing Right or Left twice, then holding it, causes the character to run.

    Some enemies cannot be damaged, like marimbondos (wasps), while others can be damaged by jumping on top of them, like in a typical Master System platform game. Curiously the second stage is completely different depending on the character chosen.
