Surely that would be Sheryolk Holmes ? :laugh:

Welcome aboard the good ship Yolkfolk. But didnt the USA have the Timex clone of the Speccy you could have bought? Not that buying a Speccy is a bad thing of course, far better than the Commode 64! :v2_dizzy_tongue:

The Commodore 64 was pretty cool, but I think CodeMasters was a lot better at developing for the ZX Spectrum, and most of their C64 ports didn't turn out very well unless they were pure action games. And since Dizzy was developed for the Spectrum first, you tend to get the most consistent Dizzy experience on that platform.

i rather enjoy dizzy more on the Spectrum then the c64 Spectrum version to me felt like at home.

Unfortunately you are all wrong!!!!! :dizzy_rolleyes:

I played Dizzy for many a year on the Amstrad CPC464 and i still think my green screen monitor outdone both the spectrum and c64 computers.....

I remember crying to my Mum cos all my mates at the time were sporting the c64 and there i was with my Amstrad...

My mum still insists the Amstrad was the more expensive :dizzy_wink:
