It's a hard life stuck here on the top right of the page. No one appreciates me. They just want to read Replay. (Sigh.)

This one was also released last year, as part of the Dizzy's Excellent Adventures compilation. This isn't a large game by Dizzy standards but it is a jolly romp through the old kingdom. As usual something nasty and evil, in this case a troll, has disturbed the peace and serenity of Yolk Folk land and it's up to Diz to get rid of the meanie and save the princess. The puzzles are of the usual standard and difficulty, and there's a magic carpet to be ridden. I really am running out of things to say about Dizzy games, they're so well known and so similar that it's quite difficult to rate one above another. I'm sure diehard Dizzy fans have their fave adventures, but I'm fairly indiscriminate when it comes to this egg. Despite the shorter length, I was quite taken by Prince of the Yolk Folk when it first appeared and nothing's happened since then to make me change my mind. An all-round good egg, but nothing amazing.

Overall: 71%
