I can't remember if I finished this or not. It's been at least 14 years since I played it.
Spoiler:
I have a memory of Horny getting eaten though. So I think I at least made it to the end game.

Willy Beamish, a game by Sierra if I'm not mistaken. It's a good game, but ran a little slow on my Amiga 500

I remember I ALWAYS wanted The Adventures of Willy Beamish but never was able to find it.

Any way to get it now?

i've never even heard of it... graphics look as if it'd be a real bitch to pixel hunt something.

Yes, but we're not allowed to talk about it here
Otherwise I guess you can check here or here.

It's actually a Dynamix game, but they got owned by Sierra.

[grammarnazi]Is that "they were owned" or "they got owned"? Because I'm picturing some sort of Counter-Strike battle between Dynamix and Sierra where they're all like "LOL I KEEL UZ" and "OMGLIEK TAK THAT" until it ends with Sierra blowing up all the Dynamix team members and sending the message "I PWNZORED JOO HAH". [/grammarnazi]

How good is Willy Beamish, anyways? I'm interested in playing it (never have so far), but the art style puts me off a bit.

Good ol' Willy Beamish. A definite classic. Was there a talkie version by any chance?

Cold-Factor: Yeah, there was definitely a talkie version, I used to have it when I was a kid. I remember liking the game but I have never tried to get it and replay it because I have recently replayed some old Sierra games and I have been REALLY frustrated by situations in which you can get stuck because you didn't get a certain item earlier in the game. I don't remember if this was an issue for Beamish (I DO remember that you can "die"), but I don't think I'm willing to find out.

ATMachine: That "owned by Sierra" quote totally made me think of CS. Pwnd n00b.

Good to know, thanks. I might just track one down just to hear Willy's voice. I always imagined what it would be like, maybe now I'll know.

Good game, very underrated. Only a couple of dead-ends and arcadish sections made it a bit less enjoyable that it should.
