Who are these two men?

And how come we never see them in the game or be mentioned in the story?

Any thoughts?

Those two men look mighty annoyed with Dizzy getting in the way of their construction. :)

I had to butcher a Shopkeep sprite to create these henchmen you see on the tape cover of Dizzy TUCA.

If anyone wants to use them for their DizzyAGE game or anything, be my guest :)

Could it be Dizzy's Eggfather, and you have to rescue him?

Sorry to disappoint anybody with this response but those two men are not featured nor in any way relevant to the game.

When the game was in development the cover art for games was outsourced with just a cover note to say a basis of what the game was about.

So for example...
"Egg, boxing gloves, moves about and goes into caves etc"...
..
So the artists see this and go.. "what can I do here then".. :)

Thats basically it. No real input by the Olivers etc at all..

Hope this helps.

Interesting to know that. Clearly either the artists were too lazy to request any details about the game or the Oliver Twins too preoccupied to supply them (Subsequent covers all seem to manage better, with the exception of Fast Food which implies a completely different game). What the men could be intended to be is anyone's guess. Possibly trolls, as the series' depiction of trolls would not be worked out until Dizzy III and troll brew is mentioned in the synopsis. Perhaps the artists imagined that Dizzy would have to steal the brew from homicidal trolls, as opposed to just finding it lying about (not that the game doesn't have its fair share of homicidal creatures already).
