Wally is back, this time with his family in the first ever Multi
Role Arcade Adventure. Not only does Wally appear fully animated,
but also Wilma, Herbert, Tom, Dick and Harry.
The purpose of the
game is to find the combination for the safe and then pay the
gangs wages. The combination is split and can be found in
different locations. Not only must the combination be
identified, but also the right items to collect the combination
must be used.
The locations are many and varied, and contain zany
arcade sequences which must be completed to finish the adventure.
Each character has specific abilities and it is up to the player
to select which one will perform a particular task.
Playing The Game
The game starts with the whole gang in the Town Square by the Fountain.
You have control of Wally, so the rest of the gang go off about
their own business. As Wally cannot do everything himself, you
will have to select one of the other characters, (except for
Herbert, he is totally uncontrollable) to perform the various
tasks. This is achieved by pressing the Character Select key
while they are on the current screen.
While a character is not
under your control, he or she may be carrying out other tasks,
which may help or hinder you.

the extreme left or right, e.g. a door or a road. To leave at these
points you should press the exit key whilst in the appropriate

but it is more risky than walking.
To complete the game, all of
the pieces of the safe's combination must be taken to the safe
in the correct order. To pick an object up, simply walk in front
of it. It will then be exchanged for one already carried.
The two objects carried are displayed at the top of the screen.
All this rushing around is hard work, so the characters must eat and
drink to keep themselves going. Wally isn't too fussy about what
he eats, but the rest of the gang may be more choosy.
Each character has a part to play. Wally is a builder and odd job man
by trade, so you should use him for mixing cement, etc. Wilma is
Wally's wife, and so might do the shopping. Herbert, Wally and
Wilma's pride and joy, doesn't do anything except get in the way.
Tom, the punk, is a mechanic, Dick is the plumber and Harry is
You will find it necessary to complete the
varied arcade sequences to obtain certain objects. In some arcade
sequences, the controls will alter to suit the game.
