Review 1: An early arcade classic from Windmill Software, famous for unleashing Digger to the unsuspecting public and converted many skeptics to PC gamers for life ;) Like all other Windmill games, Floppy Frenzy is simple, intuitive, and fun. Your objcetive: guide the floppy disk (5.25”, of course—look at the game’s date) through a maze, avoiding dust and magnets on the way. Fast, simple, and highly replayable. A proud entrant into our WISE Games collection, and another proof that good games do not need 3D graphics—or even 100KB of space, for that matter. Not as charming or addictive as Digger, but still far better than many huge, “bloatware” games on the market today.
Review 2: Oh wow, I was bumming around per usual and stumbled across this game. Floppy Frenzy is made by Windmill Software, who bought us such treasures as Digger. Now this game takes me way back! I remember thinking this was the corniest and geekiest idea for a game ever. The developer probably was sitting at his desk going 'uh duhhh what should I uhhh.. game.. uhhh what about duhhh oh wow a disk.. oh uhhh ooo sticker says no dust.. ohhh a game.. uhh duhh cool' ;). Indeed, a skeptic I was, but I was given this game way back when variety was slim, so I played it, and to my surprise, I thought it was rather funky (even though it was a rather strange concept). This game is cool! You are a magical (well, not magical as you are square) 5.25" floppy disk, and your job is to get through each maze-like level avoiding all the things you see on those stickers that come with disks (magnets and dust being apparent in this situation). If you touch magnets or dust, you shall be ruined like any God-fearing disk would be! I think the perfect sequels would have been the 3.5" Floppy Frenzy, followed by the ever-popular CD Frenzy, Zipdisk Frenzy and Removable Hard-drive frenzy. But I guess the demand was low, a real shame really *sniff*. The graphics were in lovely shades of red, green and gold ? liken to Digger, and other Windmill Software classics. I cannot comment on the sounds, if any you can expect the lovely sounds of your PC speaker. Overall, Floppy Frenzy *cringe* is a nice simple yet totally fun game. It's so cool how all these old games top the stakes in game-play, even after all these years. (Boy do I feel old). At 50kb, you can give it a shot.
Review 3: Run as a floppydisk through different levels, it's one of the good oldies on the site. Beware of magnets which will empty your storage.
