Dreamworld Pogie - Games database update

Post by Adz.M » Tue Jul 19, 2011 10:37 am

I finally got the chance to do a major update on the Dreamworld Pogie page on the games database. :)

http://www.yolkfolk.com/games/dreamworld-pogie

Dizzy gave me permission to add the ROM onto the page, because of course, the game was not only unreleased, but never completed aswell. Meaning that some levels have no exit and many parts of the game are likely to be full of bugs.

Anyway, the incomplete game is now here for you guys to see what you make of it. :)

Oh and one more thing, I couldn't resist posting this! Victory dance anyone? :p

Also since Dizzy9 released the ROM, loads of websites have posted about the game.

http://www.google.co.uk/search?client=s ... hAfc4Z3pCQ

Apparently, according to some of the sites, they've said that the game's source code we have isn't actually called a "source code". :confused:
Now I'm no technical expert, but we got specifically told that it was called a source code, so what the hell is it called if It's not a "source code"?

to me it looks a lot more like Sonic on the Master System than Mario.

i had a little play of this and it does have a mario style no doubt about it, i assume codies were trying to break into that market of side scrolling platform games and using a dizzy based character would naturally mean a lot of dizzy fans would of brought this had it been released

Very impressed with the screenshots on the site, and more importantly, been waiting forever for something like this to happen. :tup: Exciting!!

You might need an Emulator, an NES one in this case. :)
