II A. Jet Set Willy (JSW48)

New games based on Matthew Smith's original Jet Set Willy game engine for the 48K Spectrum.

 

4. Henry's Hoard

Authors: Martyn Brown and Andy Bigos

Publisher: Alternative Software Ltd

Year: 1985

Reissued: 1986, 1989

Language: English

 

Henry's Hoard, released commercially in 1985, uses a heavily-modified JSW48 game engine. This fact was discovered by Philip Bee in April 2000. The gameplay is almost identical to Jet Set Willy, while the title screen, Game Over screen and lives display have been extensively modified.

Three versions of Henry's Hoard exist: the 1985 edition, the 1986 edition and the latter edition with minor changes (and the year 1987 mentioned in the scrolling message on the title screen), which appeared on Side A of "MicroHobby" Issue 188: Tape 7 in May 1989.
