If any of you have had the privilege of playing some of the Dizzy games on Amstrad CPC, ZX Spectrum, Atari ST, Amiga, Commodore 64, NES, Mega Drive, Game Gear or DOS, then here’s a bit of a treat for you!
Yesterday, if you went to eggcitingnews.com you would have been confronted with this image.
And if you go to the same website now, not only will you be greeted with none other than Dizzy roaring out of the egg carton, but, by clicking on the “find out more” link, you will also be presented with a new page introducing Dizzy: Prince of the Yolk Folk with comparison screenshots of the original game with the new version! Cool huh? :D
The game first came out in 1991, and twenty years later has made it’s return in style. Codemasters has dropped quite a surprise for classic gamers, and from the looks of the teaser trailer above, it will stick to the roots of the original game that many have praised, loved and adored for all these years!
Prince of the Yolk Folk will be released in mid-December on iPhone, iPad and of course Android.
3DS owners, Game Boy and Metroid fans alike should rejoice, because Metroid 2 will be available on the eShop this week! Folks, this is a sweet platform game, and a worthy sequel to a franchise which has spawned numerous titles and also expanded the storyline and universe.
As Black Friday approaches in the US of A, so are a whole heap of sales appearing on the iOS App Store. First off, Appadvice has a huge list of apps and games (old and new) which are discounted for the rest of the week. Secondly, SEGA is jumping in on the parade as well with most of their old-school Mega Drive ports discounted. I couldn’t resist and just had to jump in and snag Streets of Rage 1-3 for AU. 99c each!
Speaking of SEGA, they now have an online store where you can get a plethora of Sonic merchandise. I think it’s safe to say, that SEGA sure know how to celebrate an Anniversary of a video game character who has made the company what they are today! *salute*
And finally, this is simply divine. For anyone who appreciates both 80’s Arcade gaming (in particular Pac-Man) and Lego, will appreciate this construction. A Pac-Man arcade cabinet suited for desk tops, made entirely out of Lego bricks (or at least the externals). To be honest, I’m surprised the universe hasn’t imploded due to the sheer awesomeness of this construction!
