Dizzy, a very very old platforming game that had you play as a friend-rescuing egg, is making a return! Back in the 80’s, the Oliver twins made a game that Codemasters published, and the last game to release was in 1992. A dug up version called Wonderland Dizzy has been brought to life, and is now available for all to play, for free!
You can head over to the Dizzy website here, and play the game directly through your browser. The video directly below tells the tale of how the brothers found the old game, and managed to get the ROM working, making it possible to convert into a digital title, available to be played online. Some old school fans may find this video rather pleasing.
