Dizzy is back on his fifth adventure, and this time he must fix his own mistake. While visiting his good friend the wizard Theo, he stumbled upon Theo's Book of Really Powerful Spells and despite the warnings, he read out loud one of the pages, sending all his friends and the wizard to the Underworld. Now he must travel to the Underworld himself, rescue the yolk folk and Theo and find a way to send everyone back.
This game has the largest map of all the games in the series (over 100 screens). The graphic engine was redesigned by Big Red Software, including changes to the user interface like an icon-based inventory system. Gameplay-wise, the game is similar to the other Dizzy games with its mix of puzzle and platform action.
