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!


Notes:

Dizzy Prince of the Yolkfolk is the sixth game in the Dizzy adventure series.
Initially it was only released as part of the "Dizzy's Excellent Adventures" compilation.
 
The Oliver Twins outsourced the video game company Big Red Software to develop the game.
 
This game is possibly the smallest Dizzy adventure game in terms of the number of rooms, but this meant that it was maybe the game with most critical acclaim.
 
Magazine, Amstrad Action was noted in It's dislike of walking from one area of the map to another to complete problems which it said was tedious. The smaller map helped to counteract this.
 
The game in November 1992 was enhanced and re-released with the ill-fated Aladdin Deck Enhancer under the title, Dizzy The Adventurer. The title was then released in 1993 as part of the The Excellent Dizzy Collection.
 
In 2011, the game was re-designed with new HD graphics and released onto the smart phone market (iOS ans Android).
