Review of 'Manic Miner'

Rating:4 User: p13z

If a rating was to be awarded for pure nostalgic value, or on the merit of how much of 1983 and 1984 was spent playing this game, it would be 5 out of 5 for sure.
Many of us spent untold hours teaching our fingers level upon level of pixel perfect jumping and timing to progress through this very difficult platformer game. Were we all intrinsically addicted to and in love with this game, with its wacky humour? Hypnotised by the looping brainworm music? Or was it that there was quite a limited choice of other good games at the time? I suspect all of the above.
