Jet Set Willy

Jet Set Willy was the second game to feature Miner Willy.

Jet Set Willy is a platform game in which Miner Willy must clean up each room before he is allowed access to his bedroom.


Jet Set Willy was one of the first cassette tape games to come with a form of copy protection: a card with 180 coloured codes on it was bundled with the cassette.

My Memories Playing Jet Set Willy

The two games that I played the most on the ZX Spectrum was Manic Miner and Jet Set Willy.

Playing games on my ZX Spectrum meant that I had to hijack the family TV in the living room and set up my ZX Spectrum and load games by cassette.

Later, I managed to get a portable black and white TV in my bedroom which wasnt quite as good as playing on the family TV but had the benefit of allowing me to play anytime.
