After the Oliver twins had completed Operation Gunship they wanted to release another puzzle game similar to Fast Food which only required two weeks of development time, however unexpectedly it required much more time.
The game was also re-spelled "Kwick Snax" for re-releases of the game, due to a legal claim by the car servicing and repair company, Kwik-Fit who hold a trademark on the spelling of the word "Kwik".
The Rear cover (Amstrad Version) says "Dizzy to the rescue! Outwit Zaks' court jesters, bumble bees, clockwork mice and more in the Land of Personality. Mega features and fantastic fun in the incredibly playable, action packed, arcade puzzle game!"
Kwik Snax was welcomed quite well, especially for the ZX Spectrum, receiving a 92/100 from both Your Sinclair and Crash magazines.
The Commodore 64 port, which was different even in gameplay from the ZX Spectrum, didn't have such a glamorous reception. Zzap!64 awarded 80/100, mentioning a lack of polish on the graphics and AI of the game.
