** And in ''[=JSW2=]'', you can fly a rocket into space. Complete the Cartography Room, and you'll note that the rooms making up the space area form a shape that looks suspiciously like the [[Franchise/StarTrek Enterprise]]. (One of the first rooms is called ''NCC 1501''; along and up a bit is ''The TROUBLE with TRIBBLES is...''.)

* IdiotPlot: If Willy had just fired Maria when she went on strike, then hired another housekeeper (and perhaps a heavy-duty cleaning firm), the entire plot would never have happened.

** "We Must Perform a Quirkafleeg" is a shout-out to the comic strip ''[[TheFabulousFurryFreakBrothers Fat Freddy' s Cat]]'', where it is a bizarre ritual a tourist performs in a foreign country upon seeing dead furry animals. Also, the Game Over scene is [[Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus a giant foot coming down and crushing you]].

** ''[=JSW2=]'' also had (amongst the first few rooms entered) "Macaroni Ted" (referencing ''TechnicianTed'', whose authors worked at Marconi) and "Dumb Waiter" (a TakeThat to Imagine's ''WackyWaiter''). It even had a ShoutOut to [[ManicMiner the first game in the series]], in "Down T' Pit". It also has [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries "Beam me Down Spotty"]] leading to a planet surface or to the Bathroom, and [[BeamMeUpScotty "Beam me Up Spotty"]] (the last room of the planet) leading back to "Beam me Down Spotty".

* UrbanLegendOfZelda: ''Jet Set Willy'' was beset by rumours that you could sail the ship (the rooms "The Bow" and "The Yacht") to an island. The programmers put this feature in, as noted above, in the sequel.
