Introduction..
Oh no! Here we go again, another dizzy game reviewed by myself truly! Once again Dizzy (and his friends) have found themselves in a whole load of trouble again! Poor Daisy is fast asleep and it would appear that nothing is going to awaken her! King Arthur is off on his crusades, and there is a sobbing princess in need of some consultation! Not only that, Dizzy has a whole load of rivers, trolls and such to overcome, although he does make friends with a cute little fluffy thing!

The Game..
Starting off, you find yourself stuck in a cave and have to use the various objects around you in order to get out - You start off with three lives and an energy bar, Generally there is a whole host of characters that you will come across in the game that require some kind of item in order to make them happy, and in more cases, they will give you something back (oh uh!). You will have to find the various items scattered around by problem solving and linking them to the various characters and their needs. You will find yourself running around a lot back and forth due to the limitation of only carrying three items at once.

The main obstacle of the game isnít so much of the bad guys, but more the terrain. There are many parts of the game where you will have to judge that jump just right, otherwise youíre going to end up landing in a pool of water and therefore drown and die! You will find Cherries, Coins and Stars located around the world. The Cherries you will need to collect in order to complete the game (I believe you need 20), they will also recover energy if you have lost some. The Coins and Stars will give you points and add to your tally which is presented at the top left of the screen.

Overall...
I did enjoy Dizzy: Prince of the Yolkfolk. The music is very catchy and fits the theme of the game, and the graphics are nicely suited and colourful. I did find the game kind of short, and the fact you spent most of that walking up and down somewhat longwinded sometimes, but overall this is a very fun and cute game.
