Jack the Nipper 2: In Coconut Capers
Gremlin - 1987
Machine: ZX Spectrum, and many others
This is Jet Set Willy taken to its logical conclusion. They took the Jet Set Willy style of platform game and then chucked in a whole pile of extras to add all important variety to the game play. In Coconut Capers you could: throw coconuts, swing on ropes, take a ride in a mine car (like Indiana Jones), avoid lava flows and much more. All of this is split over an incredible 192 game screens and when each new game starts you off in a different place you're ensured a fresh game every time. The aim of the game is to either score as many points as possible or be as naughty as possible (more fun). Honestly I hate saying this but it's totally god damn true! Altogether - They don't make games like this anymore!
