"The game has received a fantastic new lick of paint, and the new HD visuals really look the part ... I can happily recommend this." The Smart Phone App Preview The return of the most fantastic eggventurer of all time, with gorgeous HD graphics and glorious gameplay. Lead Dizzy on his ultimate quest to awaken Daisy and bring peace to the Yolkfolk.

As ever, his friends, the Yolkfolk, are in trouble and need saving from danger. Our hero in a whole shell’s girlfriend, Daisy, has been trapped in mysterious castle while our hero has been locked in an underground dungeon by Rockwart the troll on orders from Evil Wizard Zaks.

A wonderful game
This is a cool and beautiful game and it brings a lot of memories from my childhood. I played Dizzy series on my ZX-Spectrum 20 years ago however I remembered almost of all puzzles I've faced now just playing it. I rated this game with 4 stars because authors took the old scenario, old tricks and puzzles and just created a new look and style, nothing more. Also I guess the game is overpriced for such work.
This game is great but all impression is spoiled by ugly control scheme. For proper touch controls you need to map finger movements, taps, swipes etc to Dizzy movements on screen. But now it looks more like simple port of old game with changed graphics only which was made in big haste and without any creative ideas how to adapt it properly to touch screen. Really shame for people from Big Red Software, who stand behind this port and original title from 1991 - they could do it MUCH better!
Great game but horrible controls. We need a virtual D-pad, not this mess!
Great game.. But..
I hope Codemasters will release The adventures of Dizzy. It was the best version. Much longer and simple the best.
Eggstatic about Dizzy
Upon opening up Dizzy: Prince of the Yolkfolk, I was instantly greeted with open arms by a quite love able character. Crisp, clean graphics and eggcellent sound to accompany me on my journey. Hats off to Codemaster and DNA Interactive (subsidiary of DNA Dynamics) Fantastic!!! DNAD
I feel dizzy
My head is spinning. Great to have this game again after so many years playing it on the CPC 464. I hope Codemasters release more games like this. Great price too!
Great but Short
I downloaded on day one and finished it in a couple hours of play over a couple days. Having played a few but never finishing any on the C64 (fanatsy dizzy & treasure island) i found it a bit short but a was happy to play it and enjoyed it immensely, brough back old memories i word to the codemaster, i do hope you make more of these, price was right, when i downloaded openfeight was not working but, this patch is supposed to fix that.
