For those of you that are familiar with POTYF is was one of Dizzy’s smaller adventure games!
So how does this HD remake look and feel?
Well the graphics have been given a lovely lick of paint the game looks like a nicer more colourful version of the Amiga game.
The new Dizzy sprite Looks different to the Speccy Sprite but that not a bad thing, as he still looks as cute as ever with a big smile waving his little red boxing gloves and somersaulting all over the place.
Control wise, this game does take a while to get used, Dizzy is controlled via the iPhones touch screen with a arrows
Left,left jump,up jump,right jump and also a button you press to talk and to interact with characters or objects.
Gameplay wise mostly everything is the same apart from the fact that you don’t get lives.(for those who remember the interview I did with Oliver Twins, they mentioned why have lives in a game) originally I thought by having no lives was going to dilute the game, but it was the exact opposite, it actually took the frustration levels right down and it made the game even more enjoyable.
The game overall is Eggcellent and feels great to have Dizzy back, my only complaint is that it would have been nice to have the original ZX Spectrum version hiddden as a unlockable Easter EGG!
It’s great to have Dizzy back and hopefully this won’t be the last we will see of the eggy one, as this game although short is a perfect nostalgia trip down memory lane.
Great game and big thanks to the Oliver Twins and Codemaster for making this happen:)
Long live Dizzy Prince of the Yolkfolk!
