Sinclair User Top 50 Spectrum Software Classics - 5/50

An instant, and not unexpected, success which closely followed on the heels of the classic Manic Miner. Willy the miner has retired and taken to a life of drunken debauchery. His housekeeper, Maria, will not let him get to bed until he has cleared up the bottles and glasses lying around the house. The arcade-style graphics, the number of rooms and the strange creatures which inhabit them ensure Jet Set Willy a place in the history of arcade gaming. The game is also notable for the colour code system employted to combat piracy - with, unfortunately, limited success.
