Having trouble playing the Java games? You'll probably need to use Internet Explorer - Firefox and Chrome no longer support Java. http://www.darnkitty.com/

You have to cross the lower half of "Entrance to Hades" from left to right - a delightful challenge on what is sadly Forbidden Holy Ground in the original Spectrum JSW.

I've just realised that you can jump a gap of 2×4 Air-cells without having to stand at the very edge of the cell from which you jump – one step back from the edge will do. It makes "Priests' Hole" and "Under the Drive" considerably easier than I thought they were!

On the other hand, it would ruin any occurrences of the following design-pattern, where, in Spectrum MM/JSW, you can stand one step back from the right edge of the bottom-left cell to jump right onto the bottom-right cell:

.....--
.......
-.....-

Key:
. Air
- Water




Also, I found an infinite-death scenario by jumping left off the ramp in "First Landing" so as to land inside the Swiss Army knife in "Top Landing".

Wow - this is great news. A couple of times on "The Bridge", which is basically a "running" jump under pressure, I've launched and thought "I jumped too early, I'm dead", but I've landed safely and dismissed it as paranoia. Now it all makes sense.

I've never noticed this on, say, "Priests' Hole" or "The Kitchen", because the jumps are not under pressure so I go as far possible to the end of the platform, intentionally do a vertical jump and keep holding the jump key then, whilst in the air, begin holding the direction key. This eliminates the possibility of accidentally tapping the direction key fractionally before the jump key and stepping off the platform to death.

Good work Andrew.

Andrew - thanks for pointing out a bug in the game. I will certainly attempt to remove the bug. However I have deleted the post in which you reported it - just to keep specifics of a bug out of the main game page.

Hi all - I just found this site a few days ago and finally have completed (at least the original 83 items) Jet-Set Willy. Well, on endurance mode at least - I probably died about 50 times but I eventually overcame every challenge!

And yes I too am in early 30's and played this game as a child on ZX Spectrum (never finished cos of the bugs etc) and Amstrad (no bugs but never finished - think this was a bigger version as it had more rooms and 'the trip switch'!

Well done, this seems almost identical to the original ZX Spectrum version - without the bugs and the endurance option for infinite lives!

Have you got Java installed and enabled in your browser, and either allowed all sites to use Java, or trusted both www.darnkitty.com and darnkitty.g2-tech.co.uk to do so?

If that doesn't help, there might be something in the FAQ that does.

But have you installed Java and enabled it in your browser? For example, can you run Blagger?

Which browser are you using?

I don't have Google Chrome, so all I can tell you is that these Java games work for me in Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Netscape.

hello
i have found an infinite loop. When you are in the Priests hole on the second platform on the left, if you miss the next platform you fall three screens which in itself isnt a problem, its when it puts you back on the second platform on the left with the green starred devil reset and you cannot move. hence infinite loop.
the way round it is to ensure the starting place after death is the far left of that particular platform.

Hi captchaos,

By "second platform on the left" do you mean the one in this image? If you fall to the right thereby falling three screens, you end up back on that platform, however, if you move Willy to the position shown in that image, the green starred devil won't hurt you, and you can continue on.

I'm not sure how to replicate this, but I just managed to get stuck in an infinite-death scenario on the second platform below the Bible, where the Priest's right ear resets. It was after missing a jump in the vicinity of this platform and falling onto the conveyor-ramp in "Halfway up the East Wall".
