Woah; I love this game!!!

My favourite in the "Dizzy" series, probably a lot of this is because it was the first one that I ever played so brings back nostalgic memories, but it's also a cool game.

Could never finish it back in the day; and probably don't have time to play unfortunately.

I remember begging my parents to buy me this game in the early nineties based purely on the box art. They never did, and I never played it until today.

A nice little game, but I'm really not a fan of the one life, instant death, start again from scratch element.

31,008 (depending on whether coins are worth anything?)

Yeah I think we should add coins to the score. Lifeschool?

Yes, it's very unforgiving... you get so far, make a silly mistake as you forgot where a trap is for instance, bang... start again.

I guess this is why in later Dizzy games they added energy / lives :agree

Definitely, I was surprised not to see "coins" in the rules.

malko 19 May 2019 17:35

coins should be added to the rules

DamienD 19 May 2019 19:13

I just watched a video walkthrough; and remembered a lot of things.

I wasn't too far away from finishing this back in the day ;)

Did play it a lot 'BitD' but can't remember if I did finish it. Anyway, a lot of souvenirs with this very nice and cute game.
Now it's done. Think I have explored all possible places (the map from HOL was a good help) :) .
83'000 + 30 = 83'030

The limited inventory and backtracking remind me of the original Resident Evil. Fun adventure puzzler.

At the beginning? I don't think that should happen.

The scroll next to the grave explains the death in the screenshot: "Legend has it that Hookjaw the pirate, buried here, still guards over his treasure."

So it's a bit darn cheeky to carry it right in front of him!

capehorn 26 May 2019 04:35

Yes, it was the very beginning of the game, as I passed the grave heading west for the first time.

john4p 26 May 2019 11:15

It wasn't at the beginning. When I emerged from the caves below the dead pirat struck me with lightning.

Well, I just got an idea what the bible could be for...

Maybe you jumped through the fire on the screen to the right? That's deadly as well (unless you have the fireproof suit).

Read the scroll instead of picking up the final coin...
Didn't use any guide, map or watch a longplay.
