Meet Your Favourite
first appeared in the puzzle/arcade game Automania.
Wally Week must search
and collect all the pieces of his automobile to progress
to the next level. Simple? No. You have a clock that
is ticking away your precious time limit -(at a rate
that would make Valentino Rossie look like he was
riding a mobility scooter). Once said clock should
run out, you're fired.
This first outting
for Wally Week and resembled little of the format
for the remainder of his appearances such as Pyjamarama
and Herbert's Dummy Run. Big graphics remained though,
smooth animation and nice use of colour throughout,
making this a hit when it was first released and most
of his future (and numerous) adventures. Caps off

Herbert's Dummy Run
Three Weeks In Paradise
Our larger than life character Wally
appears in Automania. A nice platform/task which was
bold and colourful and responsive gameplay. Its sequel
(below) was nothing less than a masterpiece in my
opinion - An extremely well thought-out game with
smooth animation, great complimenting colours and
Wander around a vast house in pyjamas
and a night cap. Nothing is as it should be in this
nightmare. Apparitions waltz about the place, hands
snatch at you from the ground and beneath the floorboards,
axes fly through the air. Find a certain room and
you can relive those space invader days, albeit the
'aliens' are probably not as menacing as the originals.
A superb puzzle/arcade edition to Wally's adventures..
Scattered everywhere are objects that
are collected by walking over them which results in
the carried object being deposited. All five players-controlled
characters lead an independent life when not under
Exchange of control is done when an
uncontrolled character enters the same screen as you.
You then just press the appropriate number key and
control is exchanged. At any time, by pressing the
key for the character you want to know about, a message
comes up at the top which tells you their location.
This gameplay was unique and was another deserved
hit for Wally.
Weeks in Paradise
An elephant, a very large lion and sign
to the jungle... This can only spell trouble for Wally.
He's lost his family in this latest Wally caper and
must find them before the native inhabitants decide
to have them for the main course!
The graphics are excellent and the animation
superb, although nothing too removed from the general
Wally adventure formula, this game did not dissapoint
fans of the series and it was well received by them.

In line with the rest of the Wally games,
Herbert's Dummy Run maintains the quality graphics,
gameplay and colourful backgrounds and adopts a similar
adventure theme. This was another hit from the Wally
series and was well deserved as it delivered great
animation, crafty puzzles and super gameplay.
