Today I took a look at JSW2 the C64/C128 version.
 
It's broadly the same as the Spectrum / Amstrad version with a few rooming name changes. There's still a 'floating' feeling with jumping however it seems better or I've got more used to this version. The following major differences were noted:
 
1. The 'game over' is not a boot its Maria kicking Willy across the screen, it kind of reminds me of Technician Ted's 'Boss' actually I think. :)
 
2. The Deserted Isle does not have a countdown, instead a nasty (imitating the moon I guess) slowly decends at which point the 'blocking' palm tree goes and Willy is transported back to The Bathroom
 
3. There's an exit on the far left lower corner of Entrance To Hades, however a bit of extra cheating (ahem) shows this has no exit as you just end up back in The Bathroom
 
4. A one way trap is encountered if you jump into the toilet in The Bathroom leading to a series of rooms with one way floors, you end up at the bottom of the well ultimately. I think only the Commodore version has this "extra"
 
5. The ending is the same as the Spectrum (not checked Amstrad yet) version. Pics are included of the sequence in a spoiler.
 
Onwards with the pics. Click to see a larger image.

 

I want to start with the 'Title', 'Game Over', the 'Deserted Isle' and 'Toilet' screens then there's a selection of most but not all rooms, finishing with the 'ending' screens

Hello There, researching the in play music for this version brought me to this site and i have really enjoyed looking through the posts, especially the screen shots. I had a spectrum in the 80s but my friend had the c64 and I used to love th in game music for jsw2. It seemed so melancholic and tranquil and appropriate.

Do you know what it's based on? Is it an old reworked piece of classical music like the others or an original composition?

Many Thanks and regards!

Welcome to the forum, Zoomerlon! It's cool that you've found your way here  :D .

 

It certainly sounds like a piece of classical music, but I've no idea what it is. I am sure others will know, though :).

Welcome. :)

 

The title screen music is Beethoven's Fur Elise and the in-game music is called Romance d'amour although I do not have a composer/author for said music..

 

EDIT... Likely Bach for the latter.

That's great, thanks for the insight!

Iv always thought it would be great if there was an album made of the various compositions used across the miner willy game range.

The SID variants (Commodore range mainly) are available although I'm not sure what player would be used for them, at least the last time I looked anyway. :)
