Review of 'Jet Set Willy'

Rating:4 User: WhizzBang

Gameplay: Walk and jump around the mansion collecting flashing objects and avoiding death from falls and enemies.

A highly polished game which was hugely popular at the time but in retrospect it lacks the focus of Manic Miner, the game which this is a sequel of.

The game does have some great ideas though , and still retains the humour of Manic Miner. The game cannot be completed but you did pretty well if you managed to get past some of the more notorious sections, such as the Banyan Tree.

I prefer to play the Andrew Broads 'Manic Miner - Jet Set Willy'. This takes the Manic Miner engine and game structure but uses screens from Jet Set Willy. Give it a try yourself: http://www.worldofspectrum.org/infoseekid.cgi?id=0017540
