I always found that guiding Willy through the underground caverns was a tough job, but really rewarding.
Whenever I got frustrated with this game I moved to Jet Set Willy which at least allowed me to wander around for a bit of relaxing. Unfortunately I never got very far in both games.
It's true, Manic Miner is an indisputable Speccy classic.
In 1983 no one had seen a game like this, original, super playable, and very well programmed, even a few years later continued new and interesting.
Manic Miner appeared at the right time, written by the right person and it was impossible to fail.
A real case of popularity, just look at the number of remakes available.
Number 1 classic Spectrum game.

If only it wasn't so damn difficult... 4,5 points
