More Dizzy games for you

Hi Dizzy Fans,  

It’s been a few years, and I thought you’d like to know there has been some recent activity regarding Dizzy.  

Many of you may have noticed that Retro Fusion (Chris Wilkins) wrote a book about our early days of game development and the stories behind all those Dizzy games, Simulators and other games of the 80’s and early 90’s. The book “Let’s go Dizzy, The Story of the Oliver Twins”, was a successful Kickstarter and has been selling well since. It can be bought here:- http://bit.ly/OTBookBuy or on Amazon.  

Whilst digging though the vast archive in Philip’s loft, to get all the materials for the book and ensuring that we gave the Chris & Roger as much great material as possible we found some old discs of old unreleased games. These were Nintendo NES games, that were sadly never released, the reasons are detailed in the book. With the help of some dizzy fans, we got these games released and you can find them on these web pages to either play in browser or download on play on emulators or even a real NES with devices like EverDrive.

 and maybe there are more coming ? ;-)  

This is the 30th Anniversary of Dizzy after all! Some of you may be aware of the latest Kickstarter that is still live for a few more days for the Spectrum Next. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1835143999/zx-spectrum-next 

 It’s a new Spectrum that will plug into your latest HDMI TV, running games from SD Cards, it runs in traditional mode and is compatible with all existing Spectrum games but also and has some newer enhanced features. The big Dizzy news is that we have announced we will design a new Dizzy game for the Spectrum Next. http://bit.ly/NewDizzy 

We felt that we could afford the ‘hobby time’ it takes to design a new game, and it is being developed by a team of Spectrum/Dizzy fans, who recently rewrote, from scratch, Crystal Kingdom Dizzy, on the Spectrum, making many great improvements. https://www.flickeringmyth.com/2017/04/crystal-kingdom-dizzy-remastered-and-released-for-easter/

 Lastly, you may be interested to know that any money we may have received from the book, or these Dizzy games, is going to charity, Namely Special Effect, the Gaming charity that enables disabled kids to access video games www.specialeffect.org.uk , and The National video game Arcade www.thenva.com, in Nottingham, that recently opened a new Dizzy Exhibit – that will remain open until at least the end of the summer.
