Now this is really going back in time. Kokofoni Wilf was one of the big challengers to Jet Set Willy in 1984, and also the first Elite game ever released! Will, who can walk or fly under your control, has to travel through 63 screens spanning six time zones; from 500 million years BC to 2001 AD, finding pieces of the shattered Dragon Amulet.

Without weapons, Will has to flap his way around the danger-infested screens collecting the amulet pieces. As you progress through the zones the pieces become harder to collect.

Although the graphics are varied, colourful and reasonably attractive throughout, they are very simple and show their age. But like so many old games the finely-tuned playability and the addiction make it a great buy at this price (cliché number 493).
