Izzy's Adventure is an adventure game based on Izzy, the Atlanta 1996 Summer Olympics mascot, released for the PC in 1996. It is an educational adventure game and notable for being one of the last games by British developer and publisher U.S. Gold.
In the years leading up to the 1996 Olympics, the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games began a multimedia blitz surrounding Izzy, which resulted in the widely available Izzy's Quest for the Olympic Rings video game for the SNES and Sega Genesis consoles, as well as the lost Izzy's Quest for Olympic Gold animated TV movie. Izzy's Adventure is one of the lesser known projects based on the character, and is described as an adventure game where Izzy must search rooms for medals that are accompanied by blurbs of information on the Olympics.
A YouTube user by the name of Lykos Studios has uploaded a short gameplay video of Izzy's Adventure.
The game was lost until Lost Media Wiki owner Dycaite found a copy and released it on September 8th, 2015, for Found Media Week.
