jet set willy online

Post by neuromancer » Sun Apr 22, 2007 4:02 pm

Sorry if there's already a thread for this.

Today I've finally been able to play some multiplayer JSWO - the game is fantastic. Shame there's often no one on the gameserver (wonka) which is generally online.

It's thoroughly recommended - hopefully the large Making Of piece in RG 37 will boost the number of players.

Managed to complete 'Pitfall Willy' - that's one tough challenge

Yeah there is another thread on this - but its good to have a fresh one now that its been in the mag!

Absolutely cracking little game -- just wish I could play it more.

Maybe we need to arrange a time and day for a gang of us to have a bash!

Look for me in the game being played in RG... Yes, MPM is famous at last :lol:

Arranging an evening would be great. Any suggested times/dates anyone?

-I saw your avatar in the screen-shot MPM, and am suitably jealous!

I downloaded it yesterday and had a quick runaround with some random guy who was on. Someone post a scheduled game and I'll be there.

Yep just downloaded it during lunch and in there at the moment in the 25th anniversary WOS room.

Had a quick go, looks excellent, after reading that article in RG i had to give it a go. Congrats to all involved

My only tiny mini gripe is, i thought the keys would be QW and Space !

Why didn't I download this earlier? I've just been on a full server and managed to win a round of "Manic Willy" (which sounds ruder than it really is) - a modified version of Manic Miner. Great fun and perfect for when a certain RetroLeague game gets irritating.

Played a few times. Never liked JSW, but add the O and it is quite a laugh.

JSW is a fiendish little game, not graphically amazing but is a hell of a challenge, I keep meaning to play it online at some point but a lot of the time I'm not able to use the PC when most of the games are in progress

there're a couple of games on at the moment (9.30pm UK time) - no-ones in the WoS server, there's some players on "Bluemeat's server"

Well I have switch off in a sec due to my brother having to go to bed and this PC being in the same room, Friday and Saturday Night I tend to be online into the wee hours, so perhaps I will try my luck then

if you've got the latest build of jswo then you can use the f4 'join game' option - choose 'refresh' then select a server

i'm getting slaughtered at 'manic willy' right now!
