Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Manic Miner'

Rating:5 User: Dynamic Geezer

Wow! What a fantastic game this was.

You're mission was to guide Miner Willy through 20 Caverns collecting long lost treasure guarded by the cavern's robots!

This game has everything. Top gameplay, playability, complete addictiveness and lovely colourful graphics. Even to this day (and by coincidence right now!) I have a Manic Miner/Jet Set Willy top on which I got of Ebay!

I spent hours and hours playing this when I was younger and did manage to complete it without cheating a few times!

The idea of the game basically is to collect the flashing treasure (eg. keys) and once you have all the objects in the cavern to collect, the exit will flash. There is an air supply in each cavern and each level was and still is a joy to play.

An absolute classic. If you've never played it, download it or buy a Spectrum of Ebay and buy it! It's a real retro classic.

Thanks to Matthew Smith the creator for making my days in the 80's so fantastic with this game!
