Kwik Snax

The evil Wizard Zaks has thrown all Dizzy’s mates, the yolk folk, in separate prisons on islands to suit their personalities! Denzil went to Cloud Land as he always seemed to have his head up in them, Dylan went to Ice Land for being so cool, Grand Dizzy to Cuckoo Land because he’s a bit senile and sweet Daisy was put in the dungeon! Zaks knew Dizzy would attempt to rescue her. You now have the task of rescuing each of your mates.

The game’s played Pengo-style: you push blocks around the screen, crushing nasties if they get in the way and collecting the fruit and other objects you find. Bonus extras can be found and do weird and wonderful things to each screen’s layout. Once a screen is completed you go onto the bonus section which has to be done in a set time limit.

Graphics consist of colourful animated sprites. The presentation is outstanding: 128K owners are treated to full colour screens as an introduction, and the hilarious Dizzy Mob band play a tune on the title screen! It’s great stuff!

Kwik Snax is addictive beyond belief. Once you start playing you just won’t be able to stop, and why should you when it’s as good as this? 100% pure CodeMasters fun and frolics — cannot be missed.
