How to play:

Match More / Shape Shifter
As the shapes advance downwards, you must rearrange them to create 4 or more identical shapes in a line in horizontal lines.
If you can achieve lines of 5, it sends a full new line to the other player.
A full line of 6, sees the other player in real trouble as they are dealt 2 new rows simultaneously.
Stay ahead of the game and don’t let the shapes get to you!
 
Dizzy Dice
Dice are continuously thrown at you and you must stop them getting to you.
But these are no ordinary Dice, they all have 3’s and you must line them up in 3’s, in the directions of their dots to remove them.
 
Picture Perfect / Picture Puzzler
Un-jumble that picture!  
You have to pull the wrong pieces of the picture down and throw them back into their correct places.
But it’s not so easy when those wrong pieces are a few rows deep and you can only carry so many at a time, and the clock is against you!


Four Suits (NES version only)
Players must pull suits from the ever appearing cards at the top of the screen, and then throw them back to try and create full lines, in any direction, of sets of 4 suits, one of each.
These then disappear and you must stay ahead of the ever advancing avalanche of cards coming towards you.
You lose when the row advances to the bottom.
 
Puzzle Path (NES version only)
A random snaking path of cards has been set out in front of you.
As the cards get placed on top of each other, they increase the number.
You must work out picking up the cards ensuring that you follow the path backwards ensuring you don't hit any dead ends, or run out of time.


Notes:

Panic Dizzy was released as part of "The Excellent Dizzy Collection" for the Sega Game Gear.
The NES and Sega Mega Drive versions of the game were planned but never released.

In 2011, video footage of the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis port of this game appeared showing a 1 Player vs CPU mode.

In 2019, a Kickstarter campaign to physically release the NES version on cartride launched.
The campaign ended with £20,780 pledged.

In August 2019, the ROM of the game was made available to the public by Fusion Retro Books.
