    Its quite enjoyable and has that certain Codemasters magic that they lost when they went into the console market. Certainly a must have for all you 8-bit computer game fans. I'd love to see some new Dizzy games from the Oliver Twins one day.

    Edit: I love this guy.

    Yes the main character detailed picture is kinda scary/creepy.

    Looks great! It's great that source-code can be still found nowadays.

    It has that fuzzy old-school Codemasters feeling.

    I wonder if Mr. Nutz 2 for MegaDrive will ever get released [​IMG] I do remember that the source code for it was found some years ago?
    I _love_ that game, and the only released version is the Amiga version, which is a platform infamously notorious for its difficulty of emulation, and I want it on my handhelds! [​IMG]

    I love this guy too! [​IMG]

    Was there even Mr Nutz 2 for the Amiga? I know there was "Mr Nutz: Hoppin' Mad" which originally featured a different character and was so much better but as far as I'm aware there wasn't a sequel actually released as a rom. The sequel for Amiga was meant to be an isometric RPG style game.

    Hoppin' Mad is Mr Nutz 2 [​IMG] Here's a nice article on it: http://www.unseen64.net/2008/04/28/mr-nutz...ke-it-was-real/

    Didn't know they were doing a sequel to the Amiga one... Got any more infos on it?

    Yey! Another game surfaces. That's Californian Raisins, Bio Force Ape... and now this. Hopefully more and more of these come out--they're like treasures to all us fans [​IMG]

    Well it wasn't originally a Mr Nutz game so technically not a true sequel. A completely different set of devs made a game called Timet: The Flying Squirrel and then Ocean said they'll release it if they used Mr Nutz instead for the Amiga game. There was a sequel started to Hoppin' Mad (literally Hopin' Mad 2) that was meant to be for the Amiga. There was some screens but I cannot find them now. [​IMG]

    I have to say when I played the GBA version of Mr Nutz I was very disappointed to find it wasn't as good as the original only to discover that the one I only played was Hoppin' Mad.

    The true sequel to Mr Nutz was meant to be a isometric RPG style game and meant only for consoles as a. Was supposed to be very Zelda-ry.

    Haha, same here, ol' chap. Same here [​IMG]

    Duh, what a shame then. I hope it'll be unearthed somewhere, in the future [​IMG] The good ol' Ocean offices were full of awesome goodies, maybe we'll be able to score another awesome loot after one of the old UK's game offices closes down, who knows.

    This game is weird in so many ways, but the music is catchy to me.

    I know this has been posted already, but Damn:

    What were they thinking?

    Pretty cool game though. Seems that holding A+B gives you a "move anywhere" code (probably left in for testers at the time to test different areas) and you have no attacks except finding invincibility, but cool game nonetheless.

    This is the type of classic NES game play that I love.
