It won't be just due to the numbers of consoles that they are releasing this on phones, it will also be due to the market place. I think selling a Dizzy remake to a bunch of people all glued to FPS games may be a hard sell, whereas the phone market is more used to casual games, and puzzle games, so a remake of a twenty year old short game fits better into that marketplace.
I do have an iPad, so am now torn - I do not want to give a penny to Apple (as I may have hinted at in another thread :dizzy_biggrin :) , and have played both the original game and the DizzyAge remake for free (and I am a bit of a tight wad!), but I do want Dizzy back..... :v2_dizzy_confused3:

EDIT just watched the trailer, nice to see the old Speccy being used, but they could have got the loading screen right - they use the correct sound for a screen load, but a screen loaded in 3 sections (with the colours loading at the end), not about 5 or 6 like they did. Sorry to be pedantic, but if you are going to try and make it look right, then make it look right!

I'm so buying it! Can I do an Eric Cartman and freeze myself for 2 weeks so I will wake up on release day? I just can't wait! :v2_dizzy_yahoo:

I seem to have come across 2 more screenshots that don't appear to be anywhere else...

I don't like their interpretation of Pogie.

I got told about this re-make from a work friend.....she said "Once I left work, I thought the subject of Dizzy would be over, low and behold Dizzy was all over the radio"
Very dissapointed she heard about it before me :v2_dizzy_frown:

He was that colour on the 16-bit version of the game, the remake appears to be showing that's It's not meant to be Pogie, dispite the 8-bit versions actually showing/saying that he is Pogie.

I'm happy in a certain sense, but would have liked a console release. Oh well, the comments here make sense - who knows what is in store for our favourite character in the future?
