Jet Set Willy II: The Final Frontier was the last and only official sequel to Jet Set Willy, and this time you can even visit space!

Jet Set Willy II is more of an expansion of the original JSW rather than a new game.

If you have played JSW you will notice that at the beginning there are pretty not much any new rooms at all...But from the Rocket Room things are starting to happen!

Now you will travel to space and here you have as much as 33 new rooms to explore! excited!? ;)


I think this only are available for the ZX Spectrum, Amstrad and MSX versions.

I've got a message from the coder himself and here are the explanation how/why the Amstrad version got more room etc!


The spectrum has 48k of memory of which the screen is about 7k leaving 41k to write code in. The CPC (Amstrad) has 64k of memory with 16k of screen leaving 48k to write code in. But all the graphics take up twice as much memory and the extra memory is need to accommodate the expanded graphics plus the Kernal/operating system was left intact and this fills most of the high memory .
The reason the Amstrad version had more rooms was because the programmer decide to fix the bugs in the original layout and because of his better coding was able to fit more rooms in. This is obvious because the same data compression and code was used to fit the game back into the spectrum. The game was expanded through using a better algorithm and NOT because the Amstrad had more memory.
