Dizzy, The Adventurer! (in Off-topic)
May 6 2006 5:57 PM EDT
Mem was so nostalgic about this game, I had to show him part of the end of the game!
As you can see, here I am about to save Daisy from her deep sleep.
And here are the credits. The left side of the screen scrolls all the characters, but I took a snapshot of the hero (Dizzy) and Daisy.
Also, notice that there are 0 stars. You have to collect 50. And, I think this is the most amount of points possible in the game. I might have missed a cherry, though! (They're worth 200 points.)
Yea I think you did miss a cherry

Found out how to save in my game :) bwahahah
:D I had sooo much fun with that game! Nearly as much as an old BBC micro game 'Citadel'!
Secondbest thing about Citadel (after finding out how to kill the big reaper looking things...) was that my dad's BBC used to overheat and crash after about an hour of use, even with an external fan... Never got to finish it.. :(
Oh, that's bought back memories of another game... Can't remember what it was called, but you had to take over and control types of robots and hack into systems... There was something about radiation as well..
Ah the BBC Micro. I remember watching my dad attack a space station in Elite, just to record the number of 'Vipers' (police ships) he could kill.. He was noting his score down and I think he got bored in the end. ;)
It was called Cholo! :D And someone has made a newer version of it. Will have to go have a look! ;)

I've decided that that wasn't the version I played and am determined that there is a sequel or prequel of the game that I had played. I'm sure of it!
There were about 7 (if not more) Dizzy games. Treasure Island dizzy is the one I remember most. :)

What a crap game!!!

Of course the one that I played was called The Fantastic Adventures of Dizzy, so get on it, SNK. I need to see some screen shots of the end of that one!

I'm on it, Mem. I'll have screen shots up tomorrow.
Man I can't visit this thread..too many spoilers.. XO

You can't blame them for making such a long game and then running out of memory on the cartridge for a decent ending!
Funny stuff though.

I vote for SNK3R to get a second life, so he can come out and enjoy the sun for one.
This is why I love CB Forum - from time to time someone makes me remember my childhood. [Thanks SNK3R]
In 1988 my father bought me a "Sinclair SPECTRUM 128K ZX+2" [WOW, It sounds like an IMB mainframe, but it was a machine similar to calculator ;), which btw. I loved]
I played Dizzy for days.
Those happy days...

You can thank me for turning SNK on to the game. I played it to no avail as a young lad, and now I finally know someone that has beaten it. I can die happy now.
Daisy seems like a very prone-to-trouble sort of chica. Has the dashing egg committed to a lifetime of rescuing her repeatedly?

You clearly don't get it. Daisy is HOT! Hence, to no fault of her own ,wizards want to kidnap her/place sleeping spells on her.
