Hi all

Post by woodpigeon » Sun Oct 23, 2011 6:52 pm

Just signed up today, I have been a Dizzy fan since 1986. Every week or so my mum use to treat me to buying a game for my C64. I use to base games on their covers back then and not so much of the reviews. I picked "Dizzy" as it just looked fun! After that I continued buying them up until Magicland Dizzy.

It was a brilliant game, hard as ever to play! But back then games were.

I have art as a hobby and glad to give a hand to anyone in need with the fan games.

Speak to you all soon, excellent forum too.

Thanks

Welcome to the Community woodpigeon :)

You can download DizzyAGE remakes of some of the original games, It's not C64 style but still pretty good. :)

Have fun. :v2_dizzy_cheers:

Welcome to the community,
Your upbringing sounds very similar to mine with the exception of the C64, unfortunately I had to endure years of the Amstrad CPC464.
All my mates thought of me as the poor kid on the block ....personally I thought I was richer cos my computer had a built in tape player and a greenscreen monitor!!!?

hahah cool Salehmarley, yea i remember playing on the Amstrad down a friends house with a green screen. It's crazy how computers were so different back then.

Amstrad was cool tho, was in a league of its own.

Good meeting you :v2_dizzy_cheers:
