Add the plot of Jet Set Willy to graphics about four times the size, and much more detailed, and you get this pyjama drama featuring a sleep-walking Wally Weeks.

Using a variety of joysticks or definable keys, you must guide the bed-capped hero through the house avoiding multitudes of bouncing or spinning Whotsits, to find the alarm clock, which will wake him up in time for work.

As you progress, you find objects, only two of which can be carried, to aid you. These include keys to open locked doors. You are sustained by snooze energy which is lost when a Whotsit grabs you, and is restored by eating the food.


If the plot's not original, then why buy it? First, it's cheaper, and second, these graphics really are super, with great detail and very smooth animation.

My number one tester loved the way Wally can be made to slide down bannisters! An enormous variety of articles assail you, and in the Video Game room, there's even Space Invaders played with roast chicken, and knives and forks.

Good fun, even if not original!
