While Dizzy wasn't exactly mega popular here in Australia, as a kid growing up in the UK he was as important to me as Mario or Sonic. Now Codemasters has announced that it's bringing back the most egg-cellent egg in all of gaming. How egg-citing.
Dizzy was a character at the forefront of Codemasters early blitz on the Spectrum budget market, during the 80s in the UK. Dizzy, Treasure Island Dizzy, Fantasy World Dizzy, Magicland Dizzy -- they were platforming/adventure games cheaply and quickly produced. They were also amazing.
We'll be extremely interesting to see exactly how Codemasters approach this reboot -- XBLA/PSN? That would be our bet. A gorgeously rendered 2D version of the game with puzzles ala Limbo or Braid is the direction I'd personally like to see this franchise head towards.
I genuinely can't wait to see where Codemasters go with this.
