Fast Food (sometimes referred to as Fast Food Dizzy) is an arcade style video game much in the design of Pac-Man featuring the video game character, Dizzy the anthropomorphic egg designed by the British born Oliver twins. The game was originally released in December, 1989 and published by Codemasters. This was the third game to feature Dizzy. Because of the simplicity to design Arcade style video games, the game was playable within three days of work and only required two more weeks to finalise all graphics, interface and music.
The game was originally to be a marketing tool for the Happy Eater chain of restaurants, but this was dropped during development and Dizzy was added to the game.
A shortened, altered version of the game, entitled Easter Eggstravaganza Dizzy was made available on Amiga Action and ST Action coverdiscs in May 1993. Completion of this game would give players a code which would allow them to enter a competition in the magazine.
This version of Fast Food was designed for personal computers with operating system MS-DOS (Microsoft Disk Operating System),
which was operating system developed by Microsoft in 1981. It was the most widely-used operating system in the first half of the 1990s. MS-DOS was supplied
with most of the IBM computers that purchased a license from Microsoft. After 1995, it was pushed out by a graphically more advanced system - Windows and
its development was ceased in 2000. At the
time of its greatest fame, several thousand games designed specifically for computers with this system were created. Today, its development is no longer continue
and for emulation the free DOSBox emulator is most often used. More information about MS-DOS operating system can be found
