    Cool Games like "Jet Set Willy"

    Some that I can think of are:
    • VVVVVV
    • Life of Pixel
    • LaserCat

    ...is it just me, or do you also believe that the name of the game "Life of Pixel" is inspired by the name of the movie "Life of Pi"? If so, that means that game is inspired by both "Jet Set Willy" and "Life of Pi"! :O

    It could be the book, but then again, more people tend to watch movies than read novels these days. Plus the game was released closer to the release date of the movie than that of the book, so my guess is that its name is taken from the movie.

    Also, the game is good.
