    The originals were utter shite. Liked by the lamer gamers tho and the unintelligent chart filling punters. Sort of remind me of EA sequels.

    Thank God there are some more people in here who thought Dizzy was rubbish. Just about everyone else thinks they were the 'best games ever'. No they weren't! The first one was just about passable, the rest were bilge!

    Now... a new Magic Knight game... that'd be tops.

    Generic platform games that bought absolutely nothing new to the genre - except good marketing and some suspiciously favourable reviews.

    Oh....I better not say I thought it was a good game/s then.
    Many many hours wasted away on bizzare puzzles, lost attention in the end, but it was good fun.

    I could never see the appeal of Dizzy. Unlikeable character, generic platform shite, then later on Codemasters just used the brand as an excuse to mimic whatever game was popular and in the charts, then slap a Dizzy makeover on it.

    Some things never change eh...!

    Looks shit and old fashioned though, doesn't it?

    Incidentally, there has already been a game called 'Dizzy - Prince of the YolkFolk', as described here. It was the sixth sequel out of seven (on the 8-bits, at least).

    Furthermore, you'll note that the Codies are one a the very few companies who specifically forbid free distribution of their old Spectrum stuff. The meanies.

    Not that I really had much respect for Codemasters left but whatever I did have has now gone.

    Don't get me wrong I spent ages playing on the C64 version, top stuff, but after looking at the clip all my precious memories have gone. Shame.

    (I take it this is a PC game?)

    Eh? Did no one read this:

    This is test artwork produced by Blitz Games to see how Dizzy would make the move to a brand new 3D world. This isn't preliminary work for a new game and there isn't a Dizzy game currently in production but if you'd like to give Dizzy any feedback on his new look then email him here: Dizzy@BlitzGames.com. If you want to join the petition to bring him back properly then please visit http://dizzypetition.members.easyspace.com/. The Dizzy copyright is split evenly between Codemasters and The Oliver Twins and we'd like to thank Codemasters for allowing us to show you this new artwork."

    I really enjoyed Dizzy on the Spectrum - not sure how well he'd translate into 21st century gaming, but the games were all right for the 2.99 they typically cost.

    Aww, Dizzy wasn't that bad!

    There were certainly far worse characters in 8-bit gaming history.



    Er... I just can't think of them at the moment! :p

    Horace.

    Of "Hungry", "Goes Skiing" and "The Spiders" fame. He was pretty lacking in charisma.

    It's personality that counts.

    Generic Platformer? As I recall it was a blend of adventure and platform gameplay, where you had to trade items with the inhabitants of the world.

    Of course I only played it on Amiga, but the way some of you describe it makes me think you never really played it.
