|Title: Fantastic Adventures Of DIzzy
Rom Player: FCE Ultra
Reviewer: Jonny V
Synopsis: Hey, do you remember Dizzy on the C64? Well, he had 3 games released on the NES as well; I donít think they were very popular though.
Dizzy is an egg, and his girl friend, Daisy, has been kidnapped by Zak, the evil wizard, and you gotta save her. On your journey, you will meet Dizzyís family, who include Denzil and Dopey.
The Fantastic Adventures of Dizzy was an Aladdin cart, which was like a game genie in the sense that you had to put another game in to play/activate it.
If you ever played Dizzy on the C64, you will know one thing: ITíS GODDAMN HARD, and the Fantastic Adventures is no exception; it has all the regular Dizzy stuff, such as solving puzzles, which can be easy to solve or difficult. I suppose the game does get a bit tedious as all you do is pick up and item and then work out where to use it (these are the puzzles). This particular Dizzy game is a combination of all the Dizzy games that were on the C64, such as Treasure Island Dizzy and Bubble Dizzy.
I stress, though, that this game is hard and it can be very frustrating. I have nearly thrown my pad up the wall many times while playing it. It has no password function, which is a shit because you get so far and then die and have to start over.
If youíve never played Dizzy, I recommend you give this a try, but get ready for a challenge.
Music is catchy, but some of it is high pitched and crap.
If you like this, give Dizzy the Adventurer a try.
Best Cheats: Use the save function on an emulator to avoid losing all your progress when dying
