Trivia

Promotion

The game used a very unique promotion system. A mini-game for ZX Spectrum was created called Dizzy 3.5: Into the Magicland and was given for free with the magazine Crash!. In the game a player could see the story how Dizzy ended up in the Magicland. There was also a new character, Dizzy's cousin Danny who never appeared in any other game of the series.
