Crystal Kingdom Dizzy is an adventure video game featuring the character Dizzy released in December 1992 by Codemasters.[1] The Oliver Twins—who were heavily involved in the design and programming of previous Dizzy games—had less involvement with this one.[2]

The game is the last title to date in the core Dizzy series.[3]

At £9.99, this was the first full-price Dizzy game released for home computers; previous games had been released at budget prices (£2-3). This elicited some criticism, as despite the much higher tag, the game was no bigger or more complex than its much lower-priced predecessors.[3]

The Spectrum version of the game knocked Rainbow Islands from the top of the UK sales chart, and prevented Street Fighter II from being number one.[4] This version was voted number 70 in the Your Sinclair Readers Top 100 Games of All Time.[5]
