Commodore, Identical to the Spectrum game (a bizarre choice to port after Spellbound which was rebuilt) but with much better, fantastic music. Well, I mean it's the same tune... But the SID chip does it great justice as always :D So that's it for me. :D

I voted Amiga, as it's my favourite version of Prince of the Yolkfolk. If there had been a separate poll for Dizzy the Adventurer I would have voted Nintendo.

Amiga version for me, although preferred the theme tune from the Commodore version.

Never really liked Dizzy the Adventurer, always felt it was just a cheap remake of Prince of the Yolkfolk.
And since Prince of the Yolkfolk is one of my fave Dizzy games, personally I think they should have just left it alone.

Seriously? i think the Sid version of the music is terrible, it makes my ears hurt.

I vote for the Nes version (for once not the Amstrad version lolz) because there is just more it than most versions and the music is slightly better than the master system version in my opinion.

The Commodore has a good border but I'll second what AndyUK said about the music on that version.

The music for the Amiga had a more Adventurous feel.

Amstrad for me, like with all the others. The original format I played them in (TRIVIA: the earlier Dizzy games were written on an Amstrad)
