Dizzy series

Group Description

The adventures of Dizzy, the egg-shaped hero of the Yolkfolk. Designed by the Oliver twins (Andrew and Philip), Dizzy became one of the most recognizable characters in the European video game industry of the late 80s thanks to several games released for the ZX Spectrum and 16-bit computers.

Today, players create their own "Dizzy games", using a dedicated set of tools, named DizzyAGE found at http://www.yolkfolk.com/dizzyage

Cartoon

According to the magazine Retro Gamer (issue #2), there were plans to make an animated TV show out of the series in 1992, but it fell through because partner Hanna-Barbara thought the character was not popular enough worldwide.
