Story:
Life in the Kingdom of Zakeria has never been too easy.
But thanks to Dizzy and his adventuring friends, Zakeria has become more safer to live in.

However, the gang are all unaware that the evil Wizard Zaks is currently plotting something sinister.
A sort of evil plan that could spell an unpleasant future for the Kingdom of Zakeria.

Meanwhile, Dizzy and Seymour are in the Yolkfolk village preparing to explore the kingdom.

But will this story have a happy ending for the duo?

The game looks great Adam ...unfortunately I'm not able to get my brain to co-ordinate using 'z' and 'x' and 'space' to move characters around and have just spent around 2 hours trying to get Dizzy over the clouds to Daisy's house only to keep ending up drowning! :hitwall:

But well done for a great looking game.

Thanks. :)

Yeah sorry about the controls, I set this up with Spectrum gamers in mind as those were the traditional controls for a Dizzy game.

The clouds take a bit of mastering with AndyUK's game engine, sometimes you have to jump in mid-air when your towards the bottom of the clouds to make the perfect jump from the top half of the clouds.

With that in mind I'm more concerned about the level where you play as CJ because of the odd way you have to shoot and aim at the enemies. :rolleyes:

I had no trouble with controlling CJ. Now DJ on the other hand...

Absolutely love the casual mode. But I keep getting a game over every now and then.

I'm probably the only person that chose to play as Seymour first. :toothy:

v1.1 should now be up.

-- Fixed major bug involving the Pause button when DIZZY receives the been from the Shopkeeper which also spilled into the DJ Puff level.
-- Made major enhancements to the game's font and character dialog, both credits screens have not been modified.
-- Options screen tidied up.
-- Minor tweaks to some graphics and scenery.

Completed it this morning (admittedly on casual mode), great fun and I quite like your characterisation of Seymour being a bit of a git. Good use of humour and plenty of nice cameos.

v1.6 should now be up after fixing an overlooked bug involving playing in Casual Mode and the lives counter on all 3 Dizzy and Seymour games.

It should now be possible to keep playing without the Game Over screen appearing after losing 9 lives on Casual Mode.

Updated to v1.7 - 29th Sept 2018
