Treasure Island get`s my vote.As a C64 owner? the 1st Dizzy was a poor Speccy port, but my friends and i took to Treasure Island Dizzy like the proverbial duck to water.Gave a lot better VFM as a budget game than a lot of the full price crap we were buying.

Treasure Island Dizzy. Difficulty level perfectly pitched and a wicked twist at the end if you haven't played it before.

Treasure Island, though on the ST. The difficulty was spot on and the puzzles made sense. The series really needed 16-bit graphics to make it enjoyable.

Although Crystal Kingdom Dizzy makes the best use of the C64 (particularly in terms of graphics), Fantasy World Dizzy has always been my favourite. Some fiendish puzzles and a clever storyline. For me Treasure Island Dizzy was made unplayable by only having one life.

Fantasy World Dizzy for me - loved the CD32 version, especially the music and loved the MD version...

Bubble Dizzy on the ST/Amiga.

We played it in the Retro League, and I really enjoyed it. I got both the good and bad ending, and that was the start of my league winning streak. :D

Magicland Dizzy. It was the one that I played the most and loved it. Though the jumping was and still is very hard!

Fantasy World Dizzy. At the time it seemed to be the easiest and you got to meet all the Yolkfolk. Denzil was so cool.

First Dizzy on the C64 (On the Quattro Adventure pack) is what kicked it off, lost many hours on Fantasy World Dizzy ... but my favourite has to be Magicland Dizzy, which I eagerly awaited for release. Completed it many times, but always enjoyed playing it.

Fantasy World Dizzy was a bit frustrating with the 30 coins - where I always used to get to about 29 and never find the last one.

Treasure Island Dizzy for me, although I'd have voted for Panic Dizzy if it was up there. I freaking love that game.

The original Dizzy for me. If I remember correctly it was the first speccy game I played. :D

I'd say Prince of the Yolk Folk but seeing as it ain't up there, I'll go Spellbound Dizzy (on the CPC, of course)
