'Lost' plans for a classic NES game that went missing 22 years ago have been discovered in a loft in Leamington Spa.

The game, 'Wonderland Dizzy', was originally developed by twins Phillip and Andrew Oliver as part of the popular 'Dizzy' games series-which was one of the most sucessful franchises of the 1980s. 

The game was never released by publishers Codemasters and soon became forgotten as the Oliver twins moved on to other things. After attending a retro gaming event earlier this year Phillip Oliver decided to try and track down the game in his home-eventually finding a floppy disc containing source code and graphics for the 'lost' game.

Remarkably, the game still worked and the brothers contacted Dizzy fan site Yolkfolk.com in a bid to find someone who could help them compile the game in order to get it up and running. 

They were pointed in the direction of enthusiast Lukasz Kur who had a working version of the game ready in just a few days-which is now available to play at wonderlanddizzy.com.
