Instructions


Introduction

Whilst recovering in hospital from a severe fall down some stairs, Willy called in the builders. He thought it odd that they had green skin, but needing the work done in a hurry he asked them to remove the offending edges from his stairs. Trouble was, they did far more work than asked, adding several rooms to his mansion and then refusing to charge him!!

Maria is demanding that Willy clears up all the mess and he hasn't even found all the rooms yet. Who were these strange people?

Much patience and stamina is required to explore the extended house and NASA's "Guide to Simple Space Travel" is recommended reading for those foolhardy enough to help Willy clear up all the mess. Be careful in the sewers. Good Luck!

This game is for all the people who wished that Jet Set Willy was bigger and better; some of the rooms may be familiar and those who played the original Jet Set Willy will have a head start with this very extended over 80-room game.
