Download Manic Miner (Amstrad)
Manic Miner for the Amstrad CPC range of machines.
Both disk (.dsk) and tape (.cdt) versions are present as well as the original Software Projects release and the Amsoft Re-Release
The scrolling message reads as follows:
Guide Miner Willy through twenty lethal caverns. . . .
Q TO [ = Alternate left & right. . . .
SHIFT to SHIFT = jump. . . .
A to H = pause. . . .
J to ENTER = sound on/off. . . .
CURSOR KEYS & JOYSTICK 1 also control left, right and jump. . . .
Original version by Matthew-MANIC-Smith. . . .
Converted by D.P.ROWSON & S.W. . . . . . . . .
Don't miss the boat on JET SET WILLY. . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Oh no! Heavy hassle! Not another long boring scrolling message! Well O.K., it's not as long as some, but it's not size that's important, just how good you are with your Miner Willy. . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Thanks to Stu the Graffick, the Office Floor for all its support, Wonga the Incredible Programming Budgie, Miner Willy, CRC the Redundant Checker, John's Sprites for keeping us on our toes, and finally to 4 colour mode graphics (count 'em) without which etc, etc. . . . . . . . . . . . .
Note in particular the original Software Projects release only tends to function properly on the 464 machine! It is recommended to use the Amsoft branded Re-Release if playing on this machine. On an emulator simply switch to use a 6128 instead. Manual pokes are available to rectify this if its a concern on a real machine however but the game code is practically identical between the original and the Re-Release, the only 'real' change is the loading screen itself.
The game plays just as well as the original Spectrum version and with the exception of the last cavern it is near identical to that version too. Why the last cavern is different remains a mystery as on the BBC Micro version as well the last cavern (and a few others) are different too.
