Home Island/Iceland Dizzy?

Post by Einar Saukas » Mon Feb 11, 2019 5:50 pm

Can anyone tell me what's the correct name of this mod?

Should it be "Home Island Dizzy" or "Home Iceland Dizzy"? Or both?

I could be completely wrong but checking out the map and spelling “Iseland” I’d go with “Island”.
I can’t see why it’d be Iceland as there seems to be no connection, from the map it looks like the home island of Dizzy and a misspelling of island.

However the map contains an intro screen that says "Home Iceland Dizzy"...

The RZX video shows a screen that says "Home Iseland Dizzy".

And the game page contains a screen that says "Home Island Dizzy".

I would say the game's author wasn't very coherent about the title. Nor fluent in English ;)

That's what we see when we start original Russian version, first the game intro and later loading screen:

So the game is called here Home Iceland Dizzy, Home Iseland Dizzy and even New Dizzy. It is also "butaful" ;)

I would say he meant island - land surrounded by water and not iceland - land covered with ice. But he didn't know how to spell it and
used several wrong spellings in several places.

Make your choice about it. Actually any choice will be as good as the others :lol:

Yip, but like I say, no reference to Iceland and everything, map included, points to “island” and iseland/Iceland is a misspelling of island due to English not being the author’s first language

In every Russian database and website it's called Home Iceland Dizzy, and it was selling with this name long time ago (I saw it with my own eyes). So it's Iceland unfortunately.
