Game of the Month Review: Treasure Island Dizzy
Date: Nov. 1, 1999
My choice fell on the third instalment of Zenith's "Dizzy" conversions. This one, as the title "Treasure Island Dizzy" already suggest is set on a tropical island. You and your friends plan to go to Ibiza! (No, they're not the Vengaboys :) Alas, Dizzy takes the wrong ship, and ends up being washed up on a beach on the treasure island...
Like in the other Dizzy games, the whole atmosphere is simply brilliant. Everything has this happy and cheerful ambiance about it. Of course this is mainly due to the wonderful graphics (Zenith's up there on the top of graphics-land...): Everything is well drawn, clear happy colors are used and there's plenty of shading and randomizing. There's also some cool inventory puzzles, although (especially compared to Magic Land Dizzy) they are a bit too easy, add to this too. All of this combined make this game a topper. I know the year hasn't ended yet, but I think I can already say that all three Dizzy games are probably the best ZZT games released in 1999!
