File Name: Manic Miner BBC Micro

File Submitter: Spider

File Submitted: 04 Feb 2017

File Category: Manic Miner [Originals]

System: Acorn
Original Author(s): D.J.Coathupe


Manic Miner for the BBC Micro. The conversion was written by D.J.Coathupe.

The caverns mostly mirror other versions with a few exceptions:

1. There is no 'Solar Power Generator' instead there is a 'Meteor Showers' cavern. This is just as difficult as Skylabs, if not more so.

2. The Final Barrier is also completely different in its layout too.

The download includes the disc version, a tape version and the keypad code sheet too. This is required for the tape version. The disc version also features instructions during load too, these are not present on the original tape version mainly I suspect for a reduction in loading time.

Disc version only at the moment. I will add a tape version when I obtain an original unaltered one.

I am pleased to post that an original tape image has been sourced and added into the .zip, along with the 'slightly hard to find' codesheet for this version which is required for the original tape. :)

The game controls are:

Z / X / RETURN = Left / Right / Jump
S / Q = In-Game Tune On / Off
DELETE / COPY = Pause / Continue
ESCAPE = Abort Game

Regarding the code entry itself for the tape version, use the following keys for each colour on the codesheet

Blue = 1
Red = 2
Green = 3
Orange = 4


Note that orange will display as yellow on the machine itself during the code entry. As per other versions you have two attempts before a reload is required.
