About...

Story: 

Grand Dizzy was feeling very down one day, so Dizzy and Daisy decided to cheer him up by baking him his favourite food, cherry pie!
So off went Daisy to get some cherries from her cupboard and there were none to be seen!
 
"Pogie's pinched the cherries!" she cried, as she saw Pogie's pawprint in the cupboard.
"That darned fluffle. Come here you!" and Pogie promptly darted off into the enchanted forest to escape Daisy's rage.
 
Dizzy and Daisy decided to go into the forest to catch Pogie and gather some more cherries at the same time. Whilst searching for Pogie they got lost and found a castle, where they thought they would find help, but it seemed deserted.
 
They looked in the castle for Pogie, but Daisy caught herself on a mystic spinning wheel. She started feeling really sleepy, so she found a bed and went to sleep.
 
"Wake up Daisy, wake up!" shouted Dizzy. But before he could wake her up, Rockwart the troll caught him and locked him up underground!

This game was originally released as an 'exclusive' game for Dizzy collectors on the "Dizzy's Excellent Adventures" compilation.
Even though Prince of the Yolkfolk wasn't officially numbered, many fans still prefer to call the game "Dizzy 6", despite being released 4 months before Spellbound Dizzy ("Dizzy V").
 
You start the game with 3 lives, a full health bar and can carry up to 3 items.
 
The main objective is to find Daisy, become a prince and wake her up from a deep sleep.
There are also 20 cherries to collect in order to fully finish the game, the cherries replenish your health.
Some of the cherries are hidden behind railings, tufts of grass, a roof tile, a stone block and a few other items.
 
"Dizzy the Adventurer", a game that uses a map similar to Prince of the Yolkfolk with a number of major changes, was released on the controversial "Aladdin Deck Enhancer" for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and also released as part of "The Excellent Dizzy Collection" compilation for the Sega Game Gear in early 1993.
