When Matthew wrote manic Miner he released the game originally with Bug Byte. When he re-released the game with Software projects some small changes were made to the graphics.
This version is not a new version of the game and its main novelty is the ability to swap between the versions of the game.
Whilst I made minimal change to the games playing style or data I changed some of the ways that the game plays.
This is not a simple edit of the game it is a rewrite but leaves the basic data intact.
I have added :-
item collection sounds.
sound effects for being hit by the solar ray
sprite collision sound effects
heavy landing sound effects.
death collision graphic and sound effect
an extensive cheat.
an explanation to why you have died
an animation of the high score being added
a redraw of the title screen (fixing the keyboard graphics)
a title screen animation of a spectrum analyser
a credits screen
a title screen animation showing the version about to be played (Bug Byte graphic or S.P. graphic)
a sprite mask on the main character
a redesign on how the screens update (to stop sprite glitching)
the list of changes is extensive (Some listed above) the overall feel will still be that you are playing the original Manic Miner.
