Codemasters has today teased the rebirth of a videogame icon. Having taken the 1980’s UK gaming scene by storm, it appears that Dizzy is back to make his mark in the era of 3D gaming, online networks and power processor based consoles.
lol, I had Fantasy world Dizzy on the Spectrum
I had a few of them on my Amstrad :D All for this rebirth! (or relay... he is techniqually still an egg)
I had every dizzy game there was on my Amstrad cpc 464 plus, i was just the other day deciding on if i should make one on LBP2.....i guess now i dont need to.
Yahtzee is gonna be excited!
LOL, the first thing I thought of was ZP. Knowing modern day CodeDisasters, though, they'll probably just end up 'scrambling' it up.
Cant wait, I still have Treasure Island, Prince of the Yolkfolk and Magicland Dizzy on my Amiga.
I hope they include all the old ones as unlockables :) I played and finished every dizzy game, they were great games :)
That's a stretch, sure the UK is thrilled though
Im guessing alot of ppl on this site are too young to remember dizzy games by the look of the number of comments here.
I'm old enough to remember this old Code Masters logo, I even remember the sound of it. The fantastic adventures of Dizzy was the one I played.
I'm old enough to remember that the Oliver Twins were the developers and Codemasters were just the publishers :D
remember how easy it was to pirate games in those days with cassettes, get a dual cassette deck stereo put the game in the first tape deck put a blank one in the other press play on game tape and press record on blank tape lol
lol extremely easy :D, the thing was I didn't know anyone who pirated them though, probably due to the fact that the most expensive games were about £5 and most were about £2 :)
never heard of DIZZY not saying im young just never heard of it.
still got that retro fantastic dizzy soundtrack ringing in my mind
