Was any of their games popular over the pond?

I played a couple Dizzy games on the NES, but other than that I don't really know anything else they did. I imagine it's a must own for fans of theirs though.

This ^ to a tee.
Love the artwork on that cover(?) though. Little dude with the hat reminds me a lot of vintage games. 8)

Another sure hit for them, looks great, although I wasn't a die hard fan of their games, they are none the less as important to the gaming history time line and I'm sure it will be written exceptional well as with the previous books.
