Oi! Hopefully this one doesn't have the annoying water in the middle like the other one. Now that this one's here I have to play it as if it's a challenge =).

Well! Atleast I wasn't the only one frustrated by Dizzy in my youth. Atleast I beat a few of them. B)

Just a bit of info about the order the games were released.

Dizzy was originally an 8-bit game (for computers like the spectrum or commodore c64) and Magicland was fourth in the series of games, while Prince of the Yolkfolk was 6th.

I'm not sure about the order they were converted to the PC, but in terms of original releases, Prince of the Yolkfolk is actually a sequel to Magicland, not the other way around.

Dizzy - Magicland was second one converted to PC.

Matt is right, magicland is 4th in series. After first Dizzy, there was Treasure Island Dizzy, then Fantasy world Dizzy (first one I played and to me best one, since everything is cool with items, inventory and stuff) and Magicland.

Dizzy was originaly made for Spectrum and converted to C64 right away. Well, they are fun little logic-platforms. I see there are some really anoyed players. Well, I guess I'll be anoyed too, but on C64 you always could find cracked versions with unlimited lives, so you can focus on adventure part of game. I have Fantasy world and it's great, but you only have 3 lives. On C64 I played this one millions of times and I always lose like 10 to 15 lives. So, I guess PC gamers will never like Dizzy.
