Wally Week

Wally 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.

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 use of colours and excellent gameplay.

Pyjamarama
Pyjamarama

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 special 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..

Everyone's a Wally
Everyone's a Wally

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 control.

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.

Three Weeks in Paradise
Three Weeks in Paradise

An elephant, a very large lion and a 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.

Herbert's Dummy Run
Herbert's Dummy Run

Wally's toddler offspring is wandering lost in a huge department store after being seperated from dad!

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.
