Introduction..
Dizzy and his friends (the fluffies) are in trouble! Stuck in a castle, Dizzy must escort his friends out level by level in a Giant Castle. The fluffies are in great danger as there is many a monster wanting to eat them.

The Game..
Welcome to the wonderful world of Dizzy again! Kwik Snax Dizzy differs a lot from its previous versions in that it is not an adventure game as we all know. This game is pretty much a puzzle/maze game, in a sense, similar to Pacman/Bomberman.

You start of in a maze and your mission is to round up all the little fluffies as they hatch, and to escort them to safety. As you start each level, the eggs will be situated all over the maze, you can wait for them to hatch or you can walk into them to speed things up a little.

To help you along the way, before each level, you will have the choice of some weapons. The weapons include the following: Bombs, Firebombs, Mallets and Grenades. You will need to use these against the various monsters that spawn throughout the maze. The monsters come in all shapes and sizes. Some will just wonder around with no sense of direction, others will jump the walls, leave nasty things on the ground that will harm you, and some that will follow you everywhere. The monsters aren't after you - They are after the little fluffies you are trying to rescue. They want to eat them, and it's up to you to make sure this doesn't happen by using your selection of weapons.

If a monster attacks you, it will send the fluffies you have collected into all directions. In order to complete the level, you must have all the fluffies home and safe. The other thing that is a factor is the time limit.

Once you have completed a series of levels you will come to a bonus round. In the first one I come across, you have to catch various falling fruit with a net you have poking out of the castle window. Good items are not the only things falling, there will be bombs, and if you catch one, everything goes BOOM. There are other bonus levels you will come across too, if you find a flag during game play it will open a secret treasure room for you to have a chance at some good items that will help you along the way.

Overall...
Kwik Snax dizzy is very very addictive. You will want to come back again and again. The graphics are quite simple, the music is pretty cool. The bonus mini-games are a nice addition too. Well worth a look.
