Codemasters' Game Rebranding - Then and Now

Post by Hamtaro126 » Sat May 27, 2017 5:23 am

This is split from the thread "Camerica Mapper 71 for games other than Fire Hawk":

Here is my two cents with Codemasters' recent releases of Dizzy for NES

1) I thought Wonderland Dizzy was supposed to be the final Dizzy release for the NES...

2) I thought it wierd that the developers of the NES/SMS/GG version of the Dizzy games chose to rename the sequel formatting... The formatting supposedly, at this current time and state, is:

Dizzy 3: Fantasy World (Original) / Mystery World (Rebrand)
Dizzy 4: Magicland (Original) / Wonderland (Rebrand)
Dizzy 6: Prince of the Yolkfolk (Original) / The Adventurer (Rebrand, Reverted back to original title with the IOS and Android releases)
Dizzy 8: Fantastic Adventures of (Original, NES) / Fantastic (Rebrand, Shortened)

A brief mention: the same thing happened with Linus Spacehead's Cosmic Crusade in Europe, as it was rebranded as "Cosmic Spacehead" for some unknown reason, Maybe nameing someone after a fictional planet made of Linoleum was a bad idea? :wink:

The mentioned thread: Camerica Mapper 71 for games other than Fire Hawk

I've got no clue why the renaming of things, but you might try asking @TheOliverTwins on twitter?
