8/10! "A loving update of what is still a genuinely fun and innovative genre mash-up, as well as a fascinating glimpse at the glory days of British gaming." Metro
**** "Dizzy: Prince Of The Yolkfolk has clearly been made with a love and reverence for the original, and if you’ve never played Dizzy before, it’s an ideal place to start." Den of Geek
84%! "The game has received a fantastic new lick of paint, and the new HD visuals really look the part ... I can happily recommend this." The Smart Phone App Preview
The return of the most fantastic eggventurer of all time, with gorgeous HD graphics and glorious gameplay. Lead Dizzy on his ultimate quest to awaken Daisy and bring peace to the Yolkfolk.
The eponymous egg-shaped have-a-go hero returns in familiar form, complete with red boxing gloves and his trademark rolls and somersaults as he ventures forth on an eggciting journey into a magical world packed with collect-and-solve puzzles. As ever, his friends, the Yolkfolk, are in trouble and need saving from danger. Our hero in a whole shell’s girlfriend, Daisy, has been trapped in mysterious castle while our hero has been locked in an underground dungeon by Rockwart the troll on orders from Evil Wizard Zaks.
By running, rolling and somersaulting around the fantastic kingdom of Keldor, Dizzy’s adventure takes him throughout the magical land, exploring underground caves, leaping and bounding into the tree tops and bouncing all the way up in the far away clouds to assist Saint Peter in front of the Pearly Gates.
Fall in love with Dizzy all over again, whilst helping him on his quest to rescue his beloved Daisy from the castle ... get set for eggsplosive and eggstraordinary eggventures once more!
Created by DNA Dynamics Inc, with Paul Ranson, the original game’s project director heading up development, Dizzy: Prince of the Yolkfolk is published by Codemasters Software Co. Ltd.
What's New in Version 1.02
For all of you who say they used to play Dizzy but are now criticising the length of the game, erm its the same length it always was with exactly the same tasks... what did you expect, the game to have new screens or for a whole new game entirely? Im glad its been kept close to the original and bring on more of the same please.
Ok so maybe the cherries were a bit too easy to find - they could have been hidden a little better to make it more challenging. The fact that you have a save point and dont have a limited number of lives also makes it easier - would like to see some sort of retro mode in future releases where its more like the originals in this respect (but then again youll get folk complaining about it). Overall job well done, glad to see Dizzy back.
Oh and for those moaning about the price, this was released for the Spectrum in 1991 -- thats 20 years ago -- it was £3.99.
I was really excited to get this, I used to play it on my Commodore 64 and loved it as a kid! The game itself is exactly the same which is really great, however the hints thing is really annoying. There should be an option like on other 'point and click' games where you decide if you want them or not.
There was a glitch that meant after placing the thorn, and the doppelgänger thing got spiked, I fell through the trapdoor anyway then there was no thorn and I had to restart. Which was frustrating. The only other thing I think is the price, it is a bit much for what you get.
All in all though a great trip down memory lane, I really hope they bring out Magicland Dizzy next and Fantasy World :)
Brought back a few memories!
Being a fan from many years ago I was thrilled when this was released. The graphics and various tweaks that have been done are awesome. I like the fact that you can't die and also that you can walk faster. Just a couple of things though which I hope get updated, you should be able to talk to someone more than once and also you should be able to read the messages more than once and maybe in future version or games you could switch between the new and classic versions instantly much like the Monkey Island remakes. But yeah overall, great!
