Description Edit | History
Everyone's a Wally is a computer game released in 1985 by Mikro-Gen for the ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC and Commodore 64. The effective sequel to Pyjamarama, it featured the same hero character, Wally Week, and used an upgraded version of the same game engine. It was authored by Chris Hinsley, formerly Director of Technology at Tao Group. As of 31 May 2007, Tao Group is in administration.


Gameplay

Everyone's a Wally was the first arcade adventure game to feature multiple playable characters - a revolutionary feature at the time. Players began in control of Wally (a builder), but could switch to Wilma (his wife), and their friends Tom (a punk mechanic), Dick (a plumber) and Harry (a hippie electrician) - these last three names drawn from the placeholder phrase Tom, Dick and Harry. Herbert (their baby son) also appeared in the game as a mobile hazard NPC. The player cannot freely change character; the player begins in control of Wally and, in order to switch to another character, must first locate them. Characters not being controlled by the player wander randomly around the map controlled by extremely simple AI - another feature that, at the time, had never been seen before. Lives and health (called "endurance") were tracked independently for each character, but the game ended if any character died.

The aim of the game is to complete a day's worth of work for each character; each character has a job to do stereotypical of their skill - for instance, Wally has to build a wall, Wilma has to take back three Books to the Library, etc. Completing the job awards the character with a letter, which spells out a password to open a safe holding everyone's wages.


Song

The original tape cassette version of Everyone's a Wally featured a Mike Berry song about the game recorded as an audio track on the B side.
