Willy Games: The First 30 Years Quiz


Willy Games: The First 30 Years Quiz is a multiple-choice quiz which revolves around

Manic Miner (MM) and Jet Set Willy (JSW) games for the ZX Spectrum created between

1983 and 2013 or, to be precise, games which use the MM and JSW game engines,

as they do not all feature Willy as protagonist. Over a hundred of them have been

gamma-released so far (a full list can be found on JSW Central).

The game, designed using Jet Set Willy Editor v. 2.3.7 , makes a very unorthodox use of

the JSW64 V game engine: to create a multiple-choice quiz rather than a platform game.
It is meant to be a "meta-tribute" to MM and JSW games, their authors and everyone else

who has contributed to their development.


The Quiz is divided into four sections: Easy, Medium, Hard and Expert, with 30 questions

each. Only one answer is correct in each case. The player has 12 extra lives

to start with, and 120 in-game minutes to complete the Quiz.
They will fail if they run out of lives or out of time.
Special thanks to John Elliott, for JSWED 2.3.7, the JSW64 game engine and his crucial help

with some technical issues, and to Paul Equinox Collins, for his valuable comments on the

Quiz questions. Please see also the text file accompanying the game for more
acknowledgements, credits and all other pertinent information.
