Man still knows where all the rooms are in Jet Set Willy
A 47-YEAR-OLD man can still tell you exactly how the whole of Jet Set Willy’s mansion was laid out, including short-cuts.
Nathan Muir has amazed friends and fellow drinkers by asking them to name any room on the ZX Spectrum 48k classic and instantly telling them how to get there.
He said: “The Yacht? Down to the kitchens, out the back door, past the tool shed, across the beach, boom. Watch out for that one arrow.
“Watch Tower? Get to the roof, climb the rope on We Must Perform A Quirkafleeg. Go up from there, you’re at The Off Licence. From the highest point to the furthest east, one jump.
“It’s all still there, rotating around in my head, every room, every item, every inch of that marvellous multi-coloured blocky mansion. Even when I’ve forgotten my own name I reckon I’ll still know how to get that tricky item in The Orangery.
“Never completed it, obviously. I was just a boy.”
Muir was then immediately one-upped by friend Tom Logan, who claimed to remember the game’s entire colour codewheel.
