What was the Spectrum mag called?
I do! There were some brilliant POKES available for 'Jet Set Willy' on the Spectrum
My brother and I also once wasted an entire day painstakingly programming in the 'missing screen from Jet Set Willy', as proudly advertised and boasted about on the cover of C&VG mag (Computer and video Games), only to find we had a copper-bottomed case for prosecuting them under the Misrepresentation of Goods Act / Trades Descriptions Act, as what we spent hours and hours squelching in using the Speccy's rubber keyboard bore about as much resemblance to Jet Set Willy as a 3-legged asthmatic donkey does to a Formula One car!
I would say, 'Good times!', but those fruitless hours plugging in code certainly weren't!
I've even managed to find a copy of the mag cover on Google!
