Dizzy

Settle an argument here - my mate, Nick - lovely chap, ST fan, but alright with it - he reckons Dizzy was better on the ST, instead of the beloved CPC.

Who's right? You decide.

well, that's one way to get people to come here.

1. write something about your mate.
2. show him.
3. he registers just the post the automatic opposite of all your opinions.
4. ???
5. profit?

Trick question. "Dizzy - The Ultimate Cartoon Adventure" was never released on the ST which recieved ports of later Dizzy games which I'm sure pan the CPC in both graphics and sound being a 16 bit machine and all.

Also, you read too much slashdot

That joke hardly originated at Slashdot.

NOTHING originates at slashdot.

i don't think graphics and sound make the dizzy games though.

the games that were released on both played better on the CPC ;)

I was going to vote Amstrad, but the mouse pointer would not go over that option! So I voted ST :lol: :lol:

I chose CPC of course, but I'm wondering where all the Speccy fans are.

Yes I know I shouldn't encourage them... they are rather excitable. :)

They're being quiet, as they all know the Spectrum versions of Dizzy were written on the Amstrad then ported to Speccy :D

We don't just blindly add Speccy to every 'best version' poll. Thats for deluded fanboys :wink:
