Review of 'Manic Miner'

Rating:2 User: zxspectrum128

I admit it!

I do NOT like any platform games that are as hard as this one.
Graphics are somewhat acceptable - especially for a game published in 1983.

Playability is in my humble opinion largely influenced by the level of frustration caused by the gameplay.
If pitched right the frustation level is present but only to an extent where you think to youself: "Next time I'll pass this screen!"

Manic Miner and many other games of its kind are just infuriatingly difficult - and repetitive.

Examples of difficulty levels done right?
Try R-Type and Midnight Resistance to see what I mean.
