As hinted at yesterday, ‘80s British games icon Dizzy is set to return.
His modern arrival comes in the form of an iOS remake of 1991 title Dizzy: Prince of the Yolkfolk for iPhone and iPad, as well as for Google’s Android platform.
Furthermore, the release is nearly upon us – it will arrive on Friday December 9th.
“It always astounds us what a loyal fan base Dizzy still has,” Dizzy co-creator Philip Oliver stated. “Even after all these years people remember Dizzy fondly and it’s great to see him return for his older fans and introduce him to a new generation of gamers.”
Brother Andrew Oliver added: “Dizzy Prince of the Yolkfolk was one of the most popular Dizzy titles and it’s exciting to see him making his debut iOS and Android for the holidays.”
This new version is being developed by DNA Interactive, with original project director Paul Ranson saying: “20 years on and Dizzy: Prince of the Yolkfolk remains one of the most memorable games in the series for its puzzles and humour and it’s an absolute pleasure to return to the director’s role for this HD edition.
“For once, this is a retro classic that doesn’t require rose-tinted glasses to appreciate its design and gameplay – Dizzy: Prince of the Yolk is simply a great puzzle-solving romp that’s been brought up-to-date with glorious visuals.”
