Hi, I hope it's okay to post this here.  I've been working on this game for a few months, and it's now ready for public release. It's a sort-of JSW remake, but more of a mash-up of lots of other classic Speccy games.  If it proves popular, I'll be slowly adding more and more.  It can be played online right here, right now: https://stevesmith16...orld/index.html

 

Here's a short video of a few screens of the game:

 

 

Cheers, and hope you like it!

Welcome! :)

 

That's perfectly fine to post here.

 

I did see your screenshot on WOS and first thought they looked like Cybernoid graphics, however I have since played it and noted the huge variety (this is a good thing) of game graphics in use. :thumbsup:

Cheers. :)  Yes, at the moment there's about 20 screens, all unique, and all with several references to different Spectrum games.  I was also going to try and add stuff like a Jetman trailer and any other "folklore" I can think of.

Great stuff, thanks for creating it and posting about it here!  :thumbsup:

 

I can see references to a number of my favourite games there, that's very nice. :)

 

I look forward to playing the game when time permits. Can it be completed (i.e. is there a definite ending)?

Thanks. :)   No, it can't be completed yet.  First I have to think of something to show if a player does complete it (probably just a "well done" in classic Spectrum fashion).  It's more of an adventure to discover all the rooms.  I mean, did anyone seriously try and complete Jet Set Willy? ;)

If you're looking for amateurs who haven't completed Jet Set Willy, then you've come to the wrong place!  ;)

This is a great idea.  I love what you've got so far.  Do you have plans for a downloadable version in the future?

Thanks a lot.  I could probably create a downloadable version quite easily, I just didn't imagine there would be any demand for it since it can be played instantly in a browser.

If a downloadable version was available, I would download it immediately. It’s always nice to feel that you “have” something of value among your files (and can play it offline any time you like) and your game is very valuable for people who like JSW and ZX Spectrum games in general :).

Fair enough. :) There's now a link to download it, on the same page.  You'll need Java to run it if you haven't already got it.
