About...

Story:

Dizzy and Daisy were out in the enchanted forest picking blue berries for a pie they were making for a dinner party.
 
"These berries aren't very big!" muttered Dizzy, plucking the minuscule fruit from a bush.
 
"I can see some bigger ones over there" said Daisy.
 
Dizzy trotted over to the bush "These are still too small", he said forlornly, "we're never going to get enough!"
 
"How about these?" pointed out Daisy wandering yet further into the wood.
 
Before they knew it, the two eggs had wandered far into the forest.
By the time they reached the banks of the Great Torrent River, the two knew they had become hopelessly lost.
 
Suddenly, Daisy heard a twig snap. Dizzy span around to be confronted by Rockwart the Troll and a gang of ferocious looking Henchtrolls.
 
"I have you now little Egg!" breathed Rockwart in his most sinister voice. Quick as a flash Dizzy grabbed Daisy's hand and the pair ran desperately toward the river.
 
"Hee Hee Hee!" laughed Rockwart manically as the trolls moved in ever closer.
 
But Dizzy had a plan - "Jump in here Daisy" he cried as he somersaulted towards and abandoned apple barrel.
 
"We've escaped" he shouted back to the trolls in glee.
 
Daisy screamed because she could only see what was in front of them...


Notes: 

Dizzy Down the Rapids is an arcade style action video game that was published in 1991 by Codemasters. 
 
The game involves Dizzy riding barrels down a river avoiding obstacles and enemies.
Like Bubble Dizzy, this game derived from a minigame game found in "The Fantastic Adventures of Dizzy".
 
The Oliver twins based the game play from an arcade game called "Toobin".
