Where To Get It


Introduction | Game Controls | Game Credits


This is one of the all-time classics. Miner Willy, having thrown a huge party in his mansion has to clear up the bottles, glasses etc. which are left all over his sixty room house. This is the ultimate platform game with ultra smooth, highly animated graphics.

Miner Willy, intrepid explorer and nouveau-riche socialite, has been reaping the benefits of his fortunate discovery in surbiton. He has a yacht, a cliff-top mansion, an Italian housekeeper and a French cook and hundreds of new found friends who really know how to enjoy themselves at a party.

His housekeeper, Maria, however, takes a very dim view of all his revelry, and finally after a particularly boisterous thrash she puts her foot down. When the last of the louts disappears down the drive in his Aston Martin, all Willy can think about is crashing out in his four-poster. But Maria won't let him into his room until all the discarded glasses and bottles have been cleared away. Can you help Willy out of his dilemma? He hasn't explored his mansion properly yet (It is a large place and he has been very busy!) and there are some very strange things going on in the further recesses of the house. (I wonder what the last owner was doing in his laboratory the night he disappeared...?)

You should manage OK though you will probably find some loonies have been up on the roof and I would check down the road and on the beach if I was you.

Good luck and don't worry, all you can lose in this game is sleep.

Atomic Jet Set Willy by Kees van Oss, 2015

Retro Software is proud to reveal a brand new Atom port by the Dutch coder Kees van Oss. This new release is an astonishingly accurate version of the original title. The conversion was 'relatively' easy because the resolution of the screen matches perfectly the Atom CLEAR4 resolution.

Graphics and sound are exactly the same as the original Acorn Electron game.
