Best ModNation track EVER!

If you've listened toTalkRadar UK #41you'll know who I mean. Yup - Dizzy. The egg. Check it out:

Anyone my age will have grown up playing Dizzy on the Sinclair ZX Spectrum (unless you're American) and the Commodore 64. Or maybe even the NES, Mega Drive or Game Gear. Look - Weirdhenge in 3D! Sad thing is, I know no-one cares.

Or how about these other references?

Wanna play it? Just search for 'Dizzy's Yolkfolk Resort' or 'CatGoneCrazy'. Oh yes, didn't I mention? I made this track. So the headline may be slightly subjective. How will you know if you don't try it? You can also download my other mastertrack - Sheephenge. I don't have a thing for Henges, mind. Or Dizzy. Well, maybe a little soft spot for the gloved one.

Modnation is an amazing game.Probably better than Treasure Island Dizzy. But you can decide that foryourself.
