OK, question about the #IBEATDIZZY3 competition, which is to beat the game "without cheating"... the emulator allows the use of savestates, does that count as "cheating"? I have finished the game, but only using savestates, and I was wondering if that is reflected in the code that is generated at the end. I'm trying to get through it with the normal number of lives and there are a few seriously tough points, particularly jumping across the river coming back from the warehouse, which I am finding practically impossible to get the timing right to avoid rolling into the water...

Hi Robin.
I took have encountered the same problem with the water.
Save states are allowed and you can still enter..
All based on a working code and time.. and then it goes into the pot... :)

Great to see you again on Saturday!

Well, if Dizzy himself struggles with that bit... :v2_dizzy_biggrin:

Yeah, I'm wondering if it's a glitch in the game. The fact that I can usually make the jump ok the first time, when going from right to left, but when coming back from left to right there just seems to be no consistent place to make the jump from without dying, with survival pretty much down to luck... just seems like a bit that doesn't quite work as it's meant to. Which is to be expected, given that it's all based on kind of semi-finished code as you say.

Yes good to catch up with you, also enjoyed talking to others I hadn't met before like Melanie (DizzyZone). Seems like with a few of us based in vaguely the same part of the UK, maybe some more informal Dizzy fans' meetup might be something to think about, even if it's without the Olivers?

Fast Food Dizzy on the PC was pretty much a remake too.

Oh wow i never knew Panic! Dizzy was a different game i always assumed it was the same thing. I'm looking at it on youtube.. never seen this one before, sort of game my mum would like lol. If it's unreleased i wonder if it's in the attic somewhere ;)

Yes it's a Fantasy world remake for the nes, BUT it's more than that because there are new puzzles and new locations.
