Jet Set Willy C64 WTF?


Yesterday while looking for the PSU for my Parker MidiFly MIDI box (unsuccessful, so if you have any pointers, I’m all ears), I found my original, sealed copy of Jet Set Willy C64. Are you tired of me telling you I wrote that in 1984? Well I showed this gem to my colleagues at work today.

This evening I was trying to remember whether I’d switched to a more reliable assembler after starting the project in the buggy Macrofire assembler. I’m sure I did, I just can’t remember whether it was the Commodore Macro Assembler or not. So what do you do when you can’t remember bits of your own life? Well you google it of course, and in doing so, I found that somebody had actually remade the C64 version. Frankly, that’s just beyond my understanding, but good on Captain Death, that’s all I can say.

I haven’t checked it out, I’m still on a high from working out a decent mechanic for Chimera’s energy/material phasing system and getting a fair bit of code done. Feel free to download it and let me know what you think. (Oh and this guy has done a good job of giving a breakdown of how the data is stored in the game)
