Best Dizzy site?

Postby Kogasa » Mon May 09, 2011 1:03 pm

Just wondering.
What dizzy site is best?
There are 4 Great dizzy sites:
[url=Yolkfolk.com]Yolkfolk.com[/url]
[url=Dizzyland.ru]Dizzyland.ru[/url]
Dizzy's Domain
[url=Dizzy.pl]Dizzy.pl[/url]

MY pluses for each site:
Yolkfolk.com
-more concetrated to Dizzy Ages Games.
-Have Special messagefrom Oliver Twins :v2_dizzy_thumbsup:

Dizzyland.ru
-Concetrated on Spectrum games
-And spectrum dizzy fan games
-have a large download page(Like Fantastic Dizzy in AGA version)

Dizzy's Domain
-Lots of stuff

Dizzy.pl
-More dedicated to NES(?) dizzy games
-Lots of stuff that are missed in other sites(Like cheat codes for genesis Fantastic Dizzy)
-Fairly big download

MY Minuses:
Yolkfolk.com
-Can't download original dizzy games

Dizzyland
-In russian(I know this language,but still...)

Dizzy's Domain
-A little outdated...

Dizzy.pl
-In Polish language(Google translator won't help much)

Overall winner is Yolkfolk.com
So,What do you think about this specification? :dizzy_biggrin:
Did I missed something?

Thanks for the comments on Yolkfolk Kogasa :)

If you haven't checked thelinks page of the site yet, you might find a few more sites.

The reason we don't have downloads to the original games is of course due to legal reasons with Codemasters.

We do have many non-DizzyAGE fangames hosted on the site too, we tend to get our grubby hands on almost anything Dizzy related for the site

Dizzy's Domain was abandoned years ago, but it always contained a lot of useful information, but when it comes to game downloads, the site mostly linked to other sites, one of which was The Dizzy Zone which is sadly no longer online. :(

I often nose around Swiat Dizzy to see what the Polish Dizzy Community get up to, even though I don't know a word of Polish. :p (enjoy your 10th anniversary btw guys :p )

Dizzy Land hasn't been updated for 2 years, it seems the owners of the site just dissapeard off the face of the earth.

As for Dizzy Stories, well everything you need to know about delta's Dizzy creations is there. :) Downloads, Maps, Cheats, Tutorials etc.

Yes.
But it's not your fault.It's easy to overlook it, if you are non Polish speaker.
Dizzy.pl have official permission from Oliver Twins.Thanks that you can download Original Dizzy Games.
IMO this is a plus, right?

Ahh,yes.
I like how many big No-Dizzy Age games can be found there.
Dizzy.pl can't host poor quality dizzy games(like Zaks revenge) because admin don't have money.But I like most of these poor quality games (Like Zaks revenge or Alien Abduction Dizzy)
I always praise yolkfolk.com for this large download choose.
enjoy your 10th anniversary btw guys

Thanks, we do :v2_dizzy_walkman:

Hmm..
I plan to make an english version of denine.cba.pl
It's my site about Dizzy and some other games hacking\creation.

Does the DizzyAGE website count in its own right?

Just because the look and feel is so different from yolkfolk.com and the games appear for download on both? :v2_dizzy_confused3:

Sorry, I didn't mean to leave out mentioning the DizzyAGE site.

DizzyAGE is definatly a useful site if you ever wanted to make your own Dizzy game with the engine, It's full of demo tutorials, manuals on how the editor works, and possibly more easier of keeping track of any DizzyAGE only games that have recently come out.

And let's not forget the annual competition. ;)

Well done for starting this thread Kogasa. Im surprised we didnt have one already.

This could prove a very handy thread over time - to inform the forum & links page about any different/new Dizzy sites people find

Maybe someone can make english mirror of dizzy.pl? :)
Would it require lot of work?
BTW:I can understand some of Polish words because I used to have a worker from poland.This language is so complicated :v2_dizzy_blink:
