Miner Willy, after his fortunate discovery in Surbiton, has hundreds of new found friends who REALLY know how to enjoy themselves at a party. After a particularly boisterous thrash his housekeeper puts her foot down - Maria won't let him into his bedroom untill ALL the discarded glasses and bottles have been cleared away. Can you help Willy out of his dilemma?

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 the least good feature at the moment.

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