Magicland Dizzy The Codemasters Software Company 1990

Dizzy, the egg protagonist, is back in his fourth installment: Magicland Dizzy. The land has been corrupted by an evil wizard, and it's Dizzy's job to set everything right. To do this, he must walk, jump and flip through a large number of screens, pick up and use various items, and talk to people. The series is memorable for eccentric level design, great music, and wonderful cartoon-style sense of humor. There were 15 Dizzy games made for the Spectrum, only 7 of which were ported to the PC. Magicland Dizzy is the second Dizzy game for the PC, fourth in the series overall. This time, the evil wizard Zaks is back and has done some strange things to the Yolkfolk - Denzil is trapped in a block of ice, Dylan is in a slumber, Dora has been turned into a frog, Daisy has turned into a giant, and Grand Dizzy is stuck behind a mirror. Dizzy managed to defeat Zaks before, so can he sort him out another time? Gameplay will be familiar to Dizzy fans: adventure-style puzzle-solving (complete with inventory items) with some frantic action. As well as rescuing the Yolkfolk, you must also collect 30 diamonds. Unlike the first three adventures, Dizzy now has an energy bar as well as three lives, so the game is much more forgiving than Fantasy World Dizzy. Sound and music this time have also been upgraded to Adlib/Soundblaster, so PC gamers can now hear what Spectrum gamers have enjoyed for years. Overall, nice graphics, nice tune, nice game.
