From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

   Spindizzy Worlds is a puzzle video game published by Activision, released on the Amiga and Atari ST in 1990. It was later released on the Super Famicom in 1992 and the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1993 by Ascii Entertainment and on the Sharp X68000 and the NEC PC-9801 in 1992 by Arsys Software as Spindizzy II. The game is a sequel to the 1986 video game Spindizzy. Like its predecessor it uses an isometric view, and the player controls a spinning top-like robotic device named GERALD, a Geographical Environmental Reconnaissance And LandMapping Device, that is tasked with exploring and mapping a star system before it is destroyed.
   Eons ago, stellar matter was blown up into several pieces following the eruption of the belly of the Sun. One of those flaming parts moved at extremely fast speed towards a solar system, the Beta Twirlinus. A collision occurred, leading to what was left of the stellar piece as well as two clusters. One cluster had 23 planets, the other seven. The planets were found by astronomers in the 23rd century and are known as the Spindizzy Worlds. They had unnaturally fast orbiting speeds, as well as odd inhabits, geographic formats, and very high energy stores; since the planets were found, change climates and an increase in natural disasters in planets of the solar system were explained by a odd connection between the solar system and the Spindizzy Worlds.
   In the 24th century, the solar system planets are nearly out of energy. Earth's League of Nations, Mars' Federated Martian Colonies, and the United Moons of Jupiter send the unnamed player character to the Spindizzy Worlds to obtain jewels with lots of energies in them. Throughout the game's 15 stages, the player traverses inside a GERALD (Geo-Graphic Environmental Reconnaissance and Landmapping Device), which spins rapidly to counteract the planets' fast rotations. GERALD runs on energy, meaning jewels must be collected to keep the machine running.
   GERALD has limited controls only being able to move around with the use of braking and accelerating; there is no jumping, attacking or other actions. The player must guide the device through several levels. There are many hazards, enemies, and puzzles based on finding and pressing switches in the correct order, navigating thin pathways without falling off, and finding all gems dotted about a section. GERALD cannot jump on its own, but can reach higher platforms and traverse large gaps by accelerating and jumping over slopes or ramps, or using moving platforms, warps or platforms that make it bounce. GERALD's health, called fuel, is full at the beginning of each level and it depletes slowly over time especially with quick movements. Falling from a height onto a surface, falling off the bottom of a stage, or contact with enemies and hazards also takes away health, but it is replenished in small amounts after finishing a section of a stage and by collecting gems that are found around most levels. Some levels contain enemies, but they only hinder the player's progress and do not have to be defeated to progress and can be avoided. The stages can be viewed from four different camera views at 90° angle rotation from each other and the player has manual control over the camera view; views of objects and paths may be obscured behind other platforms in some views, and easier seen in others.
   To start, the level select screen has two clusters or star systems, Easy and Hard, named Easydizzy and Spindizzy in the SNES version. The harder system contains more complex levels and a higher number of levels than the easier system. In both clusters, planets represent levels, and although the player has a choice of which to level to play, the easier outer planets must be completed before the harder inner planets can be selected. The central star is the final stage and can only be selected after all the others are beaten. The levels are all individually named and may have a distinct visual or gameplay style. In the SNES version, once a level has been completed, the planet will explode and the level cannot be revisited; the player is then given a password.

This ver­sion of Spindizzy Worlds was de­sig­ned for the Su­per Nin­ten­do En­ter­tai­nment Sys­tem (SNES), which was an 16-bit vi­deo ga­me con­so­le of the fourth ge­ne­ra­tion ma­nu­fac­tu­red by Nin­ten­do in the years 1990 - 2003. In that time, it was the best-sel­ling 16-bit vi­deo ga­me con­so­le with su­pe­ri­or grap­hics and sound com­pa­red to its com­pe­ti­tors. World­wi­de, almost 50 mil­lion units of this con­so­le we­re sold at ap­pro­xi­ma­te­ly pri­ce $ 200 per unit. Mo­re in­for­ma­ti­on about the SNES con­so­le can be found here.
