However thanks to the wonders of emulation I’ve been playing some ‘side story’ games in the series.

The Perils of Willy (Vic 20).
This game is exclusive to the Vic 20 (Scotland you might want to check it out ?). Apparently they couldn’t get the original to fit on the Vic 20 so they created this game. Not as devious as the main entries but still has that ‘one more go’ feel to the levels.

Thanks Sut - I will see if I can find a way to play this on my VIC-20.

I have to admit, I keep reading about the Manic Miner and Jet Set Willy as iconic Speccy games, and I have never played them. I will have to just embrace emulation to try, but good to know to expect very hard games.
