Jet Set Willy Coming to Windows Phone This Friday

If you’re up for a blast from the past, you’ll be happy to know that Jet Set Willy will be heading to Windows Phone this Friday. The game is an old arcade classic that is a sequel to Manic Miner and seems to be an official port, as reported by WPCentral. The press release for the game states that the company is bringing old games to new audiences.

“The release of Jet Set Willy 360 as an Xbox Live Indie Game and as a Windows Phone game is the next exciting step in bringing classic ZX Spectrum games to a new audience, via new devices and platforms and in the process restoring some order to the market.

We began doing this some 22 months ago with our ZX Spectrum: Elite Collection Apps for iOS devices and in the intervening period there have been more than 100,000 paid instances. The release of Jet Set Willy 360 follows the positive reception and a successful launch of Manic Miner 360 as an Xbox Live Indie Game and as a Windows Phone game. It’s expected to be followed by more classic ZX Spectrum Games.”

If you’re interested in checking it out, the game will likely be available at the $1.99 price point that Manic Miner saw earlier this year.
