Dizzy - I'm so dizzy, my head is spinning...
October 7, 2005 12:11 PM   Subscribe

Dizzy was looking forward to the round-the-world cruise. When he told the other yolkfolk about the good deal he found, they wondered just what lay ahead of him... A standalone PC emulation of the Commodore 64 version of Treasure Island Dizzy, by Eighties programming prodigies the Oliver Twins.

I loved the game, i still have the music in my head. But im loathed to join yet another site to get something i got out of my system a long time ago. I think i was only there for the music anyway. Give me a shot of the Follin Bros anytime. They rocked. See also: Jeroen Tel, Chris Huelsbeck, and of course Rob Hubbard; especially for Delta, natch.

Treasure Island Dizzy may well be the most infuriating game ever, especially in the underwater sections

Treasure Island Dizzy - now there's a game I hadn't thought of in a while. Probably for good reason. Actually, it wasn't all that bad, though the one life for the entire game bit was rather annoying.

TI99/4a? Call me when there's a version that you can play with a handful of pebbles and a stick.
