SLIDER, as a not official release, THERE WERE dos versions which seemed to be speccy ports and I had them all except for dizzy 1.
Now I only have dizzy 1. (thank you for your eggcellent download) :v2_dizzy_clapping:

I had one that I downloaded from dizzyzone, but it wasn't a PC game, it was emulated from something else, the guy above says it was C64, but I'm fairly certain it was a Spectrum version I was playing.

There are a number of dizzy games that are just about impossible to track down. Crystal Kingdom and Treasure Island Dizzy on DOS are hard to find, and Fantastic Dizzy and Dizzy Down the Rapids are hard to find on Atari ST. Nick says he has a copy of Treasure Island for the PC though.

Im 99% sure theres no treasure island dizzy for MS-DOS, Maybe someone should contact Codemasters to confirm it!

If this did exist surely we would have located it by now? However records show that it was released.

Ok... I have the version of Treasure Island Dizzy for PC!!!


Please... wait... there is no need for any kind of jumps... it's just like an version of The ZX Spectrum or Amiga or Commodore... I really don't think it is an officail version... I really think there is no official version

the link is this:

Actually m8, Codemasters has this version on their website, It's about 2 or 3 years old.

On their site, you have to sign up to download it I think.

Did anyone ever try these out? Are they legitimate?
They're only 88kb each, which strikes me as unlikely for DOS games.

look like the real deal to me... it's not unusual for DOS games to fit into 88k or less .. this bolsters the authenticity in fact as It looks as if it was ASM bulk under 64k real code.

nice find!!

Those are emulated. Just your usual spectrum snapshots 'compiled' using Warajevo ZXCOMP. This can be easily determined not by only them being identical to the zx versions in every aspect (there is absolutely no reason for them to use spectrum pallet if the port was pc specific), but also by looking at the first few bytes in the executable or a text message when you quit the program :)
