I'm sure there's a game in here somewhere. Willy could sneak around a city picking up toilet rolls, or something...

Perhaps an MM based game rather than JSW ? But the principle would work equally well with either scenario.

ZX Willy has been a bug slayer in the past :). Maybe it's time for "Antivir Willy: The Corona Slayer" or something like this  :lol: .

I don't know why exactly but my thoughts turned to vertical guardian from Amoebatron's Revenge in the Software Projects version of M.M , as it has a 'bug' design to it, compared to the B.B version anyway. :unsure: ?

Funnily enough, I was thinking the other day that the coronavirus looks like the vertical guardians in Wacky Amoebatrons (in both game engines).

Ah those ones, yes I did glance but for some reason ( ! ) decided they were more like bacteria , although on reflection your choice is probably a better sprite as its not got the face on it. :) EDIT... And the animation is appropriate too.

 

For completeness sake, attaching a pic of the S.P version of 'Revenge'

Thoughts also just turned to the "hypodermic syringe" guardian in 'Ted too, its in "Prehistoric Caves" at least, quite difficult screen to get to.

If the Coronavirus keeps on wiping out tennis tournaments, I might actually have some time for Jet Set Willy later this year!

:) Although "free time" may be lacking, I for sure (and I strongly suspect others too!) would still highly value any input (as and when or if you can) even if its just a passing comment on an ongoing project/thoughts etc.
