Magicland Dizzy
Review 1:
Yet another well made and simple game from Codemasters (also behind the
Micro Machines series). You are this little round fellow (ball) and you
have to collect diamonds and other important (not) stuff. Of course you
have to avoid the evil ghosts who are out to catch you. There are many
different levels each being a bit more difficult once you get further
into the game. The the usual arcade style game mode where you go from one
screen to another once you have have avoided all the traps on te current
screen. Magicland Dizzy is a good game if you want to relax and a bit and
waste some time.

Review 2:

Fans of Spectrum computers would recall that Codemasters' Dizzy series
were some of the best games ever made for that computer. Created by a
quirky pair of designers who call themselves The Oliver Twins, the series
feature Dizzy, prince of the egg-shaped people (okay, they're actually
eggs) who are, quite ingeniously, called yolkfolk. The games are either
arcade adventure, or arcade-style puzzlers. The series is memorable for
eccentric level design, great music, and wonderful cartoon-style sense of
humor. There were 15 Dizzy games made for the Spectrum, only 7 of which
were ported to the PC. Magicland Dizzy is the second Dizzy game for the
PC, fourth in the series overall. This time, the evil wizard Zaks is back
and has done some strange things to the Yolkfolk - Denzil is trapped in a
block of ice, Dylan is in a slumber, Dora has been turned into a frog,
Daisy has turned into a giant, and Grand Dizzy is stuck behind a mirror!
Dizzy managed to defeat Zaks before, so can he sort him out another time?
Gameplay will be familiar to Dizzy fans: adventure-style puzzle-solving
(complete with inventory items) with some frantic action. As well as
rescuing the Yolkfolk, you must also collect 30 diamonds (shades of Super
Mario here). Unlike the first three adventures, Dizzy now has an energy
bar as well as three lives, so the game is much more forgiving than
Fantasy World Dizzy. Sound and music this time have also been upgraded to
Adlib/Soundblaster, so PC gamers can now hear what Spectrum gamers have
enjoyed for years. Overall, nice graphics, nice tune, nice game - what
more can I say? Highly recommended!
