Announced during the Kickstarter phase of the Spectrum Next back in May 2017, this is a Next enhanced version of the original Dreamworld Pogie. Written for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) back in the early 90’s, unfinished and unpublished, a successful Kickstarter in 2016 solved this minor issue and the game was finally finished and released to the public after 23 years.
The creators of Dreamworld Pogie on the Next, W.A.S.P. (We Are Spectrum Programmers) have returned to the task of creating Spectrum games after a break of some 20 years. They are pushing the Next to the limit and it is looking to be a real showcase of the abilities of the graphics and audio capabilities of the hardware.
From the NES version…
“Race through 15 sugar-coated levels of arcade action with everyone’s lovable pet fluffle – Pogie! It won’t be easy as enemies lie in wait, but Pogie has special powers when he swallows a fizzlola”.
