Re: Together Retro: Fantastic Dizzy

So I spent the day playing through and beating this, and I feel it's pretty good. The music and graphics are nice and the gameplay is fairly fun. I definitely feels a little low budget in some aspects though. My two biggest issues with the game were the dodgy hit detection (invincibility frames would be nice) and the item management - mainly the fact you could only carry 3 items at once - you need 5 just for the final area, so you end up taking a few trips back and forth a lot in this game.

I'm glad I played the game. I don't feel especially spurred on to try any other Dizzy games, but I definitely enjoyed it.

That's my feeling on this.

This game really didn't get a lot of love, with only 4 pages on it, but I wanted to thank alienjesus for nominating it anyway. I would have never played this game if it wasnt on TR. It might not have appealed to a wide audience, but it was like Bomberman '94 last year, not popular, but glad I played it. Fatal Fury Special I am sure will do a little better, hopefully.

No problem. I always try and keep note of any games I think would be interesting to play ready for Together Retro nominations. I'm glad I got to play a game in a series that was popular here back in the days when British gaming was kinda doing it's own thing :lol:

Yup, the pick forced me to play and form an educated opinion of the game, so no harm in that!

Just a reminder: the Genny cart is for sale on my list for anyone who missed out :lol:

I thought it was a great idea to nominate and make the list, surely hit or miss with the community but it certainly needed a spotlight on a Retro gaming site like this or we wouldnt be official. lol

Sorry I coudnt get as involved as Id like this month with discussion, but I enjoyed Dizzy as far back when I was a kid with a nes. I guess those who have spent time and cherish the game will know the deeper allure to the game that holds many few hearts, until then a still overlooked till this day classic gem excluding the genesis ver. imo.
If you can see the future while remembering the past, you may just have control of the present.
