this version

This is a rewrite of the legendary Jet Set Willy in Java, using the data from the original game to construct the rooms and sprites. It is currently a fairly reasonable copy: ropes are probably the least good feature at the moment.

The scrollbar at the side controls the speed at which the game runs.
