That would require a lot of work, since it's only made for Windows based OS. Had it been made in SDL and for other platforms as well, it would've been easier.

I have played several Dizzy games on AMIGA in the old days.
They were cute and fun to play.

Yeah, it would require rework of all of the rendering code, the audio code, the code for keyboard/mouse/joystick support. So not impossible, but incredibly time consuming and pointless.

You could most likely do a better job starting from scratch rather than to try to port this. Better spent time anyway!
