Whilst most of his adventures are mega top, our egg-tike chum Dizzy also has this habit of cropping up in arcade games. The majority of these are pretty crap and though Dizzy down the Rap ids isn't the worst (that honour goes to Panic Dizzy), it's still pretty sad.
Basically this is an out-and-out copy of the Tengen coin-op Toobin'. You're in a barrel, travelling down some fast rushy water, chucking apples at the various foes that confront you. Some of these are splashing around in the water, others are standing on the riverbank. Yawn.
The problem is that it's so darned slow (a lot slower than the original) and Toobin' is probably one of the most boring coin-ops in history anyway. Add to this some butterflies that sap away your energy and are virtually impossible to shoot down or avoid. Throw in enemies that require three hits to be waxed, making the whole thing very stop-start. Boil all this on a medium heat for a half an hour then tip it down the sink.
The scenery hardly changes, the gameplay (what there is) is repetitive in the extreme, and there really is nothing at all to make you want to play again. As a Type-In this would be quite impressive. As a commercial release it's pretty pathetic.
