Dear Abandonia visitors: We are a small team that runs one of the largest DOS Games websites in the world. We have only 3 members of staff, but serve 450,000 users and have outgoing costs like any other top site for example: our servers, power, rent, programs, and staff. Abandonia is something special. It is a library of old games for you to download. It is like an old gaming arcade with all the old games in their original format. Abandonia is a place where you can find great old games and have fun four hours and years. To protect our independence, we are dependent of our friends using the site. We run on donations averaging around 6 USD (5 Euro). If everyone reading this gave the price of a cup of coffee, our fundraiser would be made easier. If Abandonia is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online for another year. Please help us forget fundraising and get back to Abandonia.

When Abandonia was founded it was to collect and present all old games where the copyright protection had been abandoned, hence the term ’abandonware’ and the site name Abandonia.com. We are still doing our best to keep the site open and free and will appreciate your support to help it stay that way.

‐ Thank you from the Abandonia Team

We are trying to make it easy for people in every country to donate. Please let us know how we could make it easier for you.

Please give whatever you can to help us.

I began pitying the egg when I fully understood his name. All this flipping is making me dizzy...

You start off trapped in a cave and your goal is to awaken Princess Daisy who, of course, is sleeping in the tallest tower of a castle. You must find a way to reach her by performing tasks like burning down doors and being knighted. Of course that's not a problem for an egg! Although water is...

When I first began playing the game I assumed that the hardest part would be to find out who I give what to and so on. Later on I realised it was a lot more difficult because of the way Dizzy moves. For example, after you land from a sideways jump/flip you usually roll a bit so sometimes you can roll off something you just jumped onto. Not only this but as you travel back and forth across the River Styx you may fall into the water and annoyingly waste lives.

The arrow keys make Dizzy move, the up arrow key is to jump, running sideways then jumping makes you jump at an angle, and the space bar or enter key makes you pick up objects or go to your object screen.

I'd rate this game as a 3 for the following reasons: the sound gets terribly distorted and awful if not run in DOSBox, and the game can be very challenging just because of the amount of travelling across water required, while you don't get to explore fully in order to figure out puzzles without running the large risk of dying and losing at one simple point. I found the series very original but very frustrating because of the movement and the fact that you can't save. Therefore one mistake such as falling into water makes it even more frustrating because it can cost you so much.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did the first time I played a Dizzy game; I suggest you play it in DOSBox because I found it more enjoyable that way, especially because of the music.

Part of the Dizzy games Series
