Hello all,

I've actually come here with a question, but I thought I'd start by introducing myself.

I've been playing dizzy games on and off since I was about five (I think).

I was actually introduced to the games by my grandmother! We were talking on the phone and she told me she needed help with an egg who kept falling in the water and drowning... I can still vividly remember the crazy images I had in my head during that conversation. Anyway, the game was Treasure Island Dizzy on the ZX Spectrum, and with my help we actually got off the beach and eventually completed it.

Later my family bought an Atari ST and we started playing the rest of the series in full colour, but TI on the Spectrum will be the one that brings back the best memories.

Anyway, my question is actually about Dizzy 1 (one I completed but still never quite got my head around), but I'll post that in the right section.

Hehe, nice little story there mate! If someone had said that to me on the phone without knowing who dizzy was i'd be a bit worried... maybe they've brought a pet egg who keeps trying to go into a swimming pool! :v2_dizzy_tongue2:

Anyway, welcome to the forums mate :)

Back to the forums for good! :-)
