Don't know if anyone remembers, but this is the game i was singing the pre-release praises off here. Such a faithful nod to the Dizzy games guys, if you've got an iDevice, get it :)

I think a PC is planned, certainly some talk of it on the Binary Tweed twitter!

Besides, Codies are a massive company anyway, whatever legal issues there might be would inevitably be pretty small sca...

Time for Codemasters to start paying attention?

Clover and Wizzley Presto , two narrative driven, 2D platformers both with visible (and confirmed by each developer) influences taken from Dizzy, both being released by home development teams (on Microsoft's XNA software for the 360, and for the iPod Touch & iPhone) are both on the eve of their res...

How does a 2D narrative driven platformer with a get object, use object mechanic not come close?
