You may have been keeping an eye on the gaming news lately and if so would've known that on Saturday 8th April, the Oliver Twins are celebrating International Dizzy Day at the National Videogame Arcade in light of the 30th Anniversary of the Oliver's egg creation, Dizzy! But what stood out most to us was some days ago, Chris Wilkins of Fusion Retro Books mentioned a Kickstarter launch at the event to raise funds to finally release a surprise game announcement as Mystery World Dizzy on the NES..... Of which I may have found an early version of!
During my search for this elusive game I happen to come across possibly an early version for the NES, with almost the same name as the game that is soon to be properly revealed at the upcoming event. Sure enough upon launching the file the game not only matches the game teased by Chris, but also the in game graphics almost match the lovely cup and mouse mat design above.
But before you get excited thinking you'll have a blast of a time playing this and wont need to go to the event or support the Kickstarter, you'd be seriously missing out big time. You see this version could almost be described as an early alpha, as not only is the game entirely in another language, but it's VERY buggy and may not be a fully complete game. This is especially made worse by the odd sound played during the main screen and less than stellar start graphics compared to the cup design posted above.
But still from what I have experienced and have actually played I am still impressed enough to really want to get my hands on a full version, which includes support to the Kickstarter. The design of every room is very pleasing to the eye with bright and bold colours, there's great details in some of the backdrops such as the painting, the enemies and characters have nice animations with spiders dangling down towards you, and what I really liked was the Dizzy music, it's just fantastic.
All in all with a game such as this, that is sure to be improved upon to make it a feature packed release, I can't wait to see what the team have done to this game when it's actually announced at the National Videogame Arcade, Nottingham, 8th April.
