Ok it was stupid to leave that out but whats the deal with Dizzy getting knocked dizzy in Spellbound? He's hard boiled! He should be able to fall from any height! :v2_dizzy_cheers: :v2_dizzy_cheers:

I'm going to start work on a 3D dizzy in the next month or so. Plenty of good ideas at the moment...

The getting dizzy thing wasn't in the C64 version. But then, it was a bit rough round the edges generally. Has anyone noticed that the multi-color and hi-res sprites (shown one on top of the other to allow a sort of hi-res multi-color effect) are frequently either out of sync or simply don't match each other? And that the game runs more slowly when you walk right instead of left?

I've just remembered that this thread was about Crystal Kingdom, and not Spellbound... :v2_dizzy_blush:

Just stared this one.. and its pretty good.
No different then the other games.. much easier sure, but its more fun.
At least the Dizzy game grew.. the level codes with lives and health.

At the moment I'm fixing the chaps boat, sealed the leak, flxed the wheel, got the flag.. and I'm trying to find a use for this patch.. sounds like a riped sail.


Oh and i didn't find a use for the coin during the first part.. did it have a use? didn't cheer Daisy out either but I'm guessing its not needed as i completed the level? i was stuck on this for ages until i found out you can go inside the buildings. lol

Well if you put the coin down the well, you'll have something like "Sorry, only Gems and Bank notes accepted" :p

Oh i little clue i guess.. and missed.

Completed this today.. pretty easy, and fun. nice and simple.
no idea what that elephant guy was all about..
But i got pissed off what trying to resue the old dude from the cave.. you can only send him up when you've loaded the well with the 3 treasures.. being a numpty i already took them back to the start screen..lol bar one. which is how i worked it out so i had to take them all back...lol now annoying.

but the rest was pretty simple.. nice way to end the main Dizzy series.

His certainly got a fruit fetish.

also you can move in mid air so long as you're falling.

I'm afraid due to legal reasons, none of us are allowed to distribute or give links to where you can download ROMs, sorry :(

I think once most of Yolkfolk.com is sorted out they'll be a DizzyAGE remake, but don't ask me when that's gonna happen lol.
