'Dizzy Returns' gameplay details emerge - 200 puzzles, voice acting

By
Dizzy Returns will feature more than 200 puzzles and ten game areas, it has been revealed.

Defending the game's £350,000 Kickstarter funding goal, Dizzy creators Andrew and Philip Oliver said that the upcoming release would be of console quality.

"Dizzy Returns will be big, over five times larger than the original games! We'll be creating at least ten game 'areas', self-contained worlds arranged around a central 'hub'," explained Andrew and Philip Oliver on the Dizzy Returns Kickstarter page.

"Unlike the original Dizzy games, these world areas will of course be scrollable in all directions, and not be made up of individual screens.

"The original Dizzy games had on average 20 puzzles per game. Most of them were pretty basic, and relied on the player simply finding an object and taking to it its proper place i.e. picking up a key and using it on a locked door to open it.

"In Dizzy Returns we're aiming for over ten times that number of puzzles, each using unique items that have unique interactions with each other. Many puzzles will also have multiple stages, some of which can be solved in any order.

"Every single one of these puzzles, interactions and stages will be scripted, meaning that they will need to be created individually!"

It was also revealed that the game will include physics-based, light-based and time-based puzzles, full 3D animation, an original musical score and professional voice acting.

Blitz Games will create Dizzy Returns for iOS and PC, updating the series with new characters, puzzles and locations.

Kickstarter bonuses range from exclusive digital content to those who pledge £10 ($15.95) or more, to the chance to contribute to key components of the game such as naming a character or developing a complete quest for those who pledge over £5,000 ($7,975).

Dizzy Returns is tipped to debut sometime between July and September 2013.

Codemasters announced a remake of Dizzy: Prince of the Yolkfolk for iOS and Android a year ago today (November 23).
