There's one remake and two original adventures to please Dizzy fans yearning for platforming goodness from days of yore. [original Retro Remakes thread, Spud's Quest review]

The Games Page will release Hurdler 2 and Alien Gunner 2 sometime in September or October to commemorate the launch of their new web site. ShrooMan will be out in one month's time after this event.

KNPMASTER also declares that Hurdler 2 will be his best work ever and definitely worth the wait. [original forum thread]
