Description

Dizzy's third adventure sees the introduction of the Yolkfolk, including Daisy, who has got lost in the fantasy world of the title. Dizzy sets off to rescue her, braving dragons, rats and alligators along the way. The lands are littered with coins, and as well as completing the main task you should aim to collect as many of these as possible. There are puzzles on most screens, involving collecting objects such as keys, food and water buckets, and using them on doors, flames and such. Unlike the first two game, dialogue boxes between Dizzy and various other characters are included, giving the game a sense of character and humor as well as guiding you through the puzzles somewhat.

Trivia

1001 Video Games

Fantasy World Dizzy appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.

Development and Sales

According to Andrew Oliver (Retro Gamer #2), the game was developed in only one month. He also mentioned that it was the most successful of all Dizzy games.

Title

Interesting fact is that an alternative title "Dizzy 3" was only used in 8-bit versions of this game and it was visible throughout the whole game in the status bar at the top of the screen (check screenshots). 16-bit versions never mentioned that information in any place of the game.
