Description

Wally: Land of the Wallows is an early game by Mark Essen. It is the sequel to Wally and the gameplay is fairly identical. After climbing an enormous icy staircase in the first game, Wally falls asleep. He dreams about being lost in a world called Land of the Wallows, but he does not even know what a wallow is. The player has to guide him to get him home.

It is a classical platformer that consists of different levels where Bally needs to collect red balloons to exit the level. This is done by jumping platforms and avoiding spikes. Wally can also collect up to five different keys to open gates, as well as extra lives. In later levels, steam is introduced (lifts Wally up), bouncing pads, yellow balloons as temporary platforms, blocks that can only be passed from a certain direction, moving platforms, and giant balls that can be run on to get past spikes. Larger levels also contain checkpoints and contain many puzzle elements to get to the exit and all the balloons. Points are awarded based on the completion time, and for a set number of points a new life is earned. Each level has a humorous text introduction.

Many of the original game's graphics are reused - as well as some of the levels -, and it includes a level editor to create custom worlds. Many custom levels are included with the game. It also supports custom skins for Wally that can be executed using an in-game command line.
