If you don't already have Jet Set Willy then I recommend you go out to get this one. Everybody should have at least one variation of the all-time definitive platform game and this is certainly the most extensive. It's certainly good value for money because it's one of those games that keeps you occupied for ever - well for a long time anyway.

Jet Set Willy is another classic platform game, one that innovated the 'exploring' arcade/adventure idea. The massive playing area keeps you hooked just because you want to see the next room. The graphics are attractive and reasonable, but nothing to jump over the moon about, but their strength lies in the way all the screens ling up to form the mansion.

[Budget re-release] We-ell, this has dated rather a lot (it was pretty dated in it's time as well) - stick-like platform graphics aren't really all the rage anymore - but (call me weird if you like) it's still one of my all-time favourite games.

If you already have Jet Set Willy, and have waited for the final game for a year, you'll probably be a little upset. If you never saw the original, then the sequel is the one to buy, and represents very fair value for a one time classic.

Eigentlich schade, denn die nette Hintergrundgrafik scrollt ruckfrei (wenn auch sehr, sehr langsam) in alle Himmelsrichtungen; die Musikbegleitung fällt zumindest nicht störend auf. In punkto Präsentation hätte sich Jet Set Willy die Zwei hinter dem Titel also durchaus verdient, in Sachen Gameplay war die Vorlage erheblich witziger. Was bleibt, ist eine ebenso frustrierende wie frustrierte Plattform-Leiche.

The GAME is the same as the original (ie a poor boring and unoriginal platform game). No doubt this will be a big seller, but it certainly doesn't deserve to be. Best value for money in the package is the psychedelic wallpaper that comes free with each game.
