Dizzy Down the Rapids is another Codemaster's game featuring the famous little egg character, Dizzy. This one is a rip-off of the arcade game Toobin. You control Dizzy, as he floats on the surface of the river. You have to make your way down the screen as fast as possible to the end of the course in the set time limit. There are seven levels to beat, each with tighter time limits and numerous enemies to avoid. You can fire at the bad guys and collect shields which make you invincible for a short time. It's an easy game to play, but it does get very hard later on.

Final level complete.

The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Using an infinite lives cheat. An infinite time cheat doesn't help as you need the time to decrease on the bonus rounds - otherwise you end up floating forever between levels.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Level seven is the last level. It's very, very hard. It took me a few attempts to beat this. The time limit is very short, so you really need to complete the course flawlessly. Once you reach the end of the level a message pops up in large text, which reads 'Well done. Mission complete'. The game then restarts.


  • Neil: I'm disappointed with this one.

  • Vinny: I'm disappointed too. Check out the ending to Mig-29 and you'll see why :(

FINAL SAY: It's just some large text. Egg-stremely dull indeed.

G.E. RATING: 2 / 10
