Things i like, things i don't like

About Fantasy world Dizzy.

things i don't!
1. Forget the pick up the bolder after droping the bone!
its probably one of the worse moments of any dizzy game... imaging doing that and then spending the next hour wondering around!
2. the bean stalk.. i dunno what it is but i can never climb the dam thing. i just roll off.
3. The hole in the bag.. whats the point?
4. I do hate the lack of life bar but its not a massive problem with the game.


things i do.
Dragons, introducting the yolkfolk, kicking dozy in the sea,
upside down world, illusion puzzle, coins are reasonable to find.
Whiskey bottle.
Its always the cracked ones that let the light in

from what i remember:
yeah didn't like the bean stalk - took me hrs to get up that

whisky bottle [thought that was hillarious]
loved the upside down world

can't remember much more for now [might go back & have another go] :v2_dizzy_walkman:

Dizzy looked ridiculous with that hat, what is he, crocodile dundee? I preferred the look he had in the arcade games to be honest, but, otherwise I really liked the graphics in this game, some of my favourite next to Crystal Kingdom and Spellbound.

Being the first Dizzy game that I ever played I'm rather fond of this one.

I'm surprised that so many seem to have had a problem with the beanstalk, as personally I've never found it too bad.

The one thing I'm not too fond of is the Wide-eyed Dragon; it blows its flames totally at random, making getting close enough to it to smash the jar of sleeping potion more a matter of luck than skill.

I didnt hate the beanstalk but i hated the clouds, you don't slip through most of them then suddenly one of them has a hole in it!
Also that bloody illusion screen. You know, the one under the docks. There is like, one coin in there and it takes about 40 minutes to get out of it...

Nice to see they learned their lesson and put another on in Spellbound dizzy GRRRR!

Gag objects rule. Modern gamers seem far too impatient to appreciate that sort of humour. Same with the advert scrolls in Treasure Island
