Gaming Nostalgia: Dizzy

Following it’s release in 1987 the first Dizzy game – Dizzy: The Ultimate Cartoon Adventure – was so popular that it lead to a full franchise which became one of the most successful European computer game brands of the 1980′s.

This is Robert Settle's first article in a series exploring the games that have had the biggest impact on him since he first started gaming over 20 years ago. (Android, Codemasters, Dizzy - The Ultimate Cartoon Adventure, Dizzy: Prince of the Yolkfolk, iPad, iPhone, Retro)

Oh I love Dizzy. Never got around to completing any of them on Amiga as a kid, but a few weeks ago I finally got to the end Prince of the Yolkfolk using WinUAE emulator (and save states).

Cheers for the approval. I would certainly recommend checking out the android/ios poty game.

You'd probably find all the puzzles really easy considering you just played an emulated version but the graphics are top knotch. Plus they also included the ability to save your progress in that too!

They should do like Sega did with the classics and release them as a bundle on PSN/XBLA :)

That'd be nice, I think they were probably testing the water with the new app version of Prince of the Yolkfolk.

But the fact that nothing new has been said since it was released suggests to me that they're not doing anymore at least at the moment.
