This is a rarity: A site which used to be brilliant but is now awful.

Nowadays, Tango market their site at students acting like dicks.  But they used to aim it at geeks like me.  And not only that, geeks with exactly the same taste in retro games as me.

Yes, in 1990  Tango used to base their site around a shameless rip off* of Jet Set Willy – the greatest game of all time.

Spot the difference

The game itself is sadly not archived, but here’s a few screen shots.

*There’s a chance Jet Set Willy’s Matthew Smith got royalties, but knowing what marketing companies are like, I doubt it.
