Description

Dizzy must rescue four of his 'Yolkfolk' (groan) chums in this game, from Cuckoo Land, Ice Land, Cloud Land and Zak's Castle. Like Fast Food it doesn't directly resemble the main series of arcade adventures, instead being a single-screen action game, resembling Pengo. The basic idea is to move around a maze of blocks collecting fruit, but the twist in the style is that you push the blocks in the maze to kill or trap those enemies. After every level is completed a short bonus screen appears where more fruit can be collected. During play various other tokens are released, such as bonus points, a smart bomb and control reversal.

Trivia

C64 version

The C64 version of the game was substantially different to others, and featured Dizzy having to gather a number of 'Fuzzies' in a maze which then needed leading to the level exit. Fuzzies would follow Dizzy in a line which could be disrupted by enemies, making the game similar in style to Snake and its variants. The instructions for the game were not changed for the C64 release, however, making the story inconsistent with the gameplay.

Spectrum version

The Spectrum version always crashes when the player reaches 80,000 points.
