Jet Set Willy: The Final Frontier

We-ell, this has dated rather a lot (it was pretty dated in its time as well!) - stick-like platform graphics aren't really all the rage anymore - but (call me weird if you like) it's still one of my all-time favourite games.

Willy's a bit of a wide boy but his days of limbo-dancing, midnight barbecues and skinny dipping in the pool are numbered: if he doesn't clear up all the bottles, glasses and party paraphernalia left over from his latest orgy, his housekeeper Maria won't let him go to bed. Aaah!

So off he goes through the various rooms of his huge mansion avoiding gargoyles, flying pigs and er... poisonous hopping rabbits (yeah, well, it is a *very old* game). The graphics are alternatively stick-like and blocky and there's practically no sound - but for a nostalgic trip down memory lane, it's definitely worth a peek.
