Good for the time

I remember Jet Set Willy quite vividly, it really left an impression as a superior game at the time. I had it for the Spectrum ZX81 when I was about 8 years old and something about the idea of a high society type, or a 'yuppie' / 'Jet Setter' being the main character stuck with me. Very much a product of it's time, you can hardly say the game-play still stands-up when there's games like GTA and Halo out there. This one had a special something about it lacking in modern games however, character I suppose. Plus the monsters freaked me out, and the front cover of the game's cassette box (yes, it was a tape cassette) was just brutal.

Worth downloading a Spectrum emulator and having a whirl.
