Jet Set Willy II

There really isn't a great deal that can be said about this game that hasn't been said about its predecessor Jet Set Willy. Jet Set Willy II is a pretty faithful sequel.

The story begins soon after poor old Willy has had a nasty fall down the stairs. He should be in bed recovering but due to the mess left by some rather strange builders his wife Maria is having a fit and insisting that Willy tidies the house. On his journey round the mansion Willy is shocked to discover that it has a lot more rooms than he is paying rates for. The Builders are responsible, but why?

As before you must guide Willy around the house avoiding the myriad hazards razor blades and flapping loo seats to mention just two. As you pass from room to room you will notice objects be they bottles, glasses or even taps. These objects must be collected by guiding Willy over to them and touching them. This may mean having to dodge ' things' scampering up and down in your path, in which case you will have to apply a little skilful jumping. Some very nasty traps have been set for you, the conveyor belt is a cinch compared to some. Repeat the gathering process for each room of the house and hope that you make it to the end, whatever that may be.
