Personal review
Great platform game, in its era one of the very finest, was followed up by Jet Set Willy and Jet Set Willy 2. This game will be remembered for its simplicity and its gameplay.

Matthew Smith, the Author, sold the game to two companies at once, (Bug Byte and Software Projects) hoping one would buy it from him. Both sold the game, but only Software Projects had the capital to continue with the sequel.
