From the team that bought you the award-winning LEGEND OF ATLANTIS comes SIZZLER, an exciting new arcade adventure for the Commodore 64! Take control of Mik3, a robot tasked with assembling a game from various component parts scattered throughout the massive map. Once done, take the game to the Zzap! offices to see if it will earn a coveted SIZZLER status!


SIZZLER is also available to order in the following formats for the C64:-
The PREMIUM PLUS DISK EDITION of the game is presented on a 5.25" floppy disk with full colour double-sided artwork in a clear plastic disk case. This version includes a printed instruction booklet.
The BUDGET DISK EDITION features a 5.25" floppy disk presented in a full colour glossy disk-sleeve with a glossy disk label and printed instruction booklet.
The TAPE version is presented in a single cassette case with a full colour glossy inlay card.


Mik3 has always dreamed of creating a game like his heroes from the past. A C64 game with great graphics and wonderful SID music. After a few failed attempts he decides now is the time. Help Mik3 roam the rooms of the developers offices and find as much code, art, music and ideas as you can then take them to Stu the programmer, Trev the artist, Saul the musician & Kenz in the duplication room. Then finally take your finished game to the Zzap offices and try your best to get a Zzap sizzler. Fame or utter failure await you in this epic quest.

Pick this game up a few days ago just to play on my C64 Mini. It runs really good on the system and the game is fun. Can honestly say I love the fact that you all still make games for C64. Looking forward to obtaining your other games. 

good to hear - thanks ;)

Really nice game! but I agree with rodoherty1. I would prefer some kind of checkpoint system so that you don't start from the beginning all the time. 

Hi, if you are playing using a C64 emulator then you can save your progress using the snapshot feature - and if you are playing on a C64mini then that allows you to save your progress whenever you like :D

I use a real C64

You could use a freeze cartridge like the Action Replay to save your progress - that would work on a real C64

Yes, I can do that, I should have one.

Thanks, I will test it. 

I'm enjoying it but it is very, very tough.  Would the developers consider updating it so that you can start with more lives or something like that.  I'm just a casual gamer (with a job and kids) so I haven't got the time to grind and grind until I complete the game.
