Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Manic Miner'

Rating:5 User: Vampyre

There are a handful of games that absolutely define the Spectrum and Matthew Smith wrote two of them: Jet Set Willy and the year before, this game, Manic Miner.

There are a multitude of reasons why MM is a classic of the 8-bit era and I'm not going to bore you with them! One fact remains though: MM is still a supremely playable platform game, and anyone looking into why the Spectrum is so beloved of Specchums merely has to hunt this game out and give it five minutes.

It is IMO a much better game than its sequel and I'm ashamed to admit that in 25 years I have never completed it - curse you The Warehouse!
