Jet Set Willy comes to the iPhone!
Grown ups of a certain age are sure to become slightly misty-eyed when we tell you that the seminal ZX Spectrum game Jet Set Willy will be coming to the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad as of next week. Oh yes.
Available for £1.19 (good value as this writer remembers paying £5.95 for it in Fenwicks in Newcastle in 1984), it’s the latest in the Elite Collection available in the App Store and it’s the kind of news that might very well rock your world, as you’ll be able to relive your youth while on the move or stuck on public transport. Hopefully you won't need to refer to the colour code card before you start.
Of course, you can already play the game on your computer, along with hundreds of others at the seminal ZXSpectrum.net site, pausing only to leaf through some old issues of the seminal Spectrum-flavoured Crash magazine, now available online. Or perhaps you'll wait for the mooted console relaunch.
That you sorted for the weekend then? Our pleasure…
