I'll add my top 3 here:

1. Pyjamarama
2. Everyone's a Wally
3. Automania

Also, I remember being so impressed at the time that Pyjamarama had a mini space invaders clone within it - a game within a game!

1 - Frost Byte
2 - Equinox
3 - Stainless Steel

Never been a big Wally fan (to be honest, back in the day I only knew Three Weeks in Paradise).

Three Weeks in Paradise doing very well.

Am genuinely interested to know what draws people to vote for it over Pyjamarama and Everyone's a Wally.

(Not that I'd argue with any of the Wally games winning the poll though :) )

I'm guessing it's because they enjoy it more!
Hope that helps Morkin. :lol:

3 weeks for sure. Pyjamarama a very very close 2nd and Equinox. I never much liked Herberts and Everyones a Wally.

I don't have anything cool to put here, so i'll just be off now to see a priest with yeast stuck between his teeth and his friend called Keith who's a hairpiece thief...

3 Weeks had a few more solvable puzzles near the beginning and less barriers nearer the start of the game that allowed it to engage you more or quicker. I never really knew what to do in EveryonesAW, with more obscure puzzles, or Herberts which as i recall had too many deadly obstacles from the get-go for me.

3 Weeks and Pyjamarama are the only 2 of this series i ever completed. Pyjamarama was ground breaking in some ways, 3 weeks just polished it even more and had a better premise.
