Try playing with a knackered graphics card. :hitwall:
I've got a week off work from Monday so I'm going to borrow a laptop and download all the games again.
5 nonstop Dizzy days then off to Buxton for the weekend.

:v2_dizzy_blink: the comp page is down...

EDIT:: it's back up.

Evidently I've forgotten the first rule of mass-media - Give the people what they want! It seems that what they don't want is a top-down speech adventure, or a very-difficult skill based platformer :p

ah well, you either love 'em or you hate 'em!

I disagree - People have different tastes. What is apparent is that every game has been enjoyed by some people as each entry has been voted for and accumulated some points.
OK, some games have more mass appeal than others, but I think its apparent from the traffic on these forum threads that lots of people have had a lot of enjoyment from all the entries.

Every game has something good about it, and altho only one game can be the comp winner, every entry is more than valuable in promoting Dizzy and this community!!

Well done y'all

I agree with DizzyFan, those were good comments about the spirit of the competition and the positive feedback all the games get on the forum threads.

We make the games cos we love the Dizzy style of gaming and want others to enjoy our efforts and personally, I wouldn't even have completed my first game without all the help provided by the more competent coders, especially Jamie.

I've just voted and sorry Phil, Heartland Dizzy didn't get my lowest vote.

Few things I've noticed but the current scores..
im surprised Lost Kingdom Dizzy so fair isn't competing with with top 3.. i kinda of predicted this could have won a top spot.. i liked it a lot.

Heartland and Daisy 2 are fighting for that position.
And It seems both of LDoY games are clashing heads, with oops just ahead.

with Dragon Vally, Daisy 1 and lost temple all close so anything can happen.


Looks like Grogg is going to come top.

Lost Kingdom??? do you mean Lost Temple? :v2_dizzy_confused2:
If so, i agree with you, i really enjoyed that game, thought it had a very good mix of puzzles, and was the right level of difficulty (for my simple brain).
I am also surprised at the low placing of COTM, as I thought that was another of Delta's high quality games, and I like the fact its a bit different.
Mind you, i must say that i think the standard of entries is incredibly high and enjoyed them all, I just havent got the time or patience I'm afraid to keep playing the same section of ETD. (sorry Jamie, give with one hand, take with the other :D )
So, well done to all the gamemakers :v2_dizzy_clapping: and good luck, and to everyone else, GET VOTING!!!
