No new levels.
No new items.
Maybe some new puzzles with old items use,but I doubt it.
About GFXs...Still no clue,but they are unused.
And can be seen only by hacking.

Maybe if you can access the secret area, then that's where you're supposed to use the Prince's Secret Sign now?

Something else occurred to me recently: There are a few places online where you can download the soundtrack to the Amiga version of Fantastic Dizzy, and they include one song that I have never heard in any version of Fantastic Dizzy. Is it some kind of unused battle song? Also, all the music in those recordings tends to sound a little different from what I've heard WinUAE output, like there's more of a real piano sound in the castle and mine cart songs, there's a sort of choral sound behind the underwater theme and final victory theme, and other things like that; just a higher quality sound in general, although sometimes the different voices sound a little out of tune with each other. The title music (which was the overworld music on Genesis and PC) even ends the loop by slowing to a stop. So what I'm wondering is, was it just a deficiency of WinUAE that I didn't hear the music like that in-game, or could that soundtrack really be a remastered version from the mythic "AGA on floppy disk" release of Fantastic Dizzy? Perhaps the secret song, the secret area, and the secret object are all related!

I was bored today and re-stumbled across this topic. I'm going to test some things out on the CD32 version and get back to everyone here.

Sorry to drag up a old thread but something popped into my head.

Might be a long shot but the use of 'purple rain' was also a Captain Dynamo cheat.

If you typed 'purplerain' in the titles or the highscore (can't remember which one) it game you invulnerability.
This is my memory from last playing the game some 10+ years ago :)

Some coders at Codemasters must really liked Prince music :)

ED: Also purple rain was used in Bubble Dizzy

Not only purple rain. "Love Sexy", "Controversy", "For You", "Dirty Mind", and "Sign Of The Times" are pices by Prince, too.

this made fun reading!

OK so since last summer I've had 3 different dreams about this game on 3 different occasions. All of them involve stuff that's not in the actual game, new areas and items etc (though I can't really remember anything specific from the dreams). I cannot let this go, I keep hoping that there is more undiscovered stuff in there. Some things that we could consider is; starting the fire that defrosts Denzil elsewhere? Maybe using the treasure chest somewhere?

I cannot let this go, as much as I would want to :D

Prince's secret sign?!

How long before the dragon rumbles the fake egg and takes his terrible revenge! This is what concerned me..
And that ungrateful pirate.. On my second play through I begrudged giving him that rum.
EDIT: HER revenge..
