And finally, it's not exactly a graphic, but Tommy Pereira has created a mini demo for
the (sadly no longer online) Dizzy Zone website. It's basically a
non-playable Spectrum ROM with some nice animations and so on. You can get it from
the fangames section of www.yolkfolk.com.
The best places to start your search for Dizzy music are Dizzy World and Yolkfolk.com. Each site has a
multimedia or music section and none is better than the other in that respect. It
depends what file types you're looking for. Having said that, it's worth mentioning
that (at the time of writing) Yolkfolk is the only site to offer rm files and Dizzy
World has the widest range of MIDI files. Other Dizzy sites (see
links page) may have music downloads too.
Zophar's Domain has a Nintendo NSF archive featuring music
from NES games in NSF (Nintendo dumps - a bit like what SID is for C64) format. I'm
pretty sure that the archive includes all NES Dizzy game music.
As well as all the stuff you'll find by following these links, it's worth noting that
for download from this very site you can get a MIDI version of Prince of the Yolkfolk (C64 version) theme music which is
different to that offered by the sites above.
Dizzy Land has a page of
remixes of Dizzy tunes (MP3 format) at http://www.dizzyland.co.uk/remixes.htm.
Dj Doki has remixed / sampled a number of NES tunes, including a remix of The Fantastic
Adventures Of Dizzy called "Fantastic Doki" (MP3) Visit his site to find
out more and to download it: http://djdoki.cjb.net/.
VGMix has lots of remixes of computer game music,
including a remix of Dizzy the Adventurer here and the Amstrad Dizzy
