Manic Miner - The Big Bonus Edition
This is a very simple modification of Manic Miner to provide a higher score compared to a standard version. In addition to this, a few small minor (miner?) changes were also made to improve the game a fraction. Care was taken in what changes were made to avoid an insane score value being obtainable.
The .zip contains two tape files, as well as a more detailed readme.txt file.
A conventional loading .tap file, suitable for easy transfer to other media if required and a .tzx file which features a Speedlock loader, the latter must be loaded in 48K mode only.
The 'score changes' performed were as follows:
1. Item Collection: Changed to 1,000 points per item from its default of 100.
2. Air Bonus: Changed to 10 from its default of 1 per air unit remaining upon cavern completion.
3. Kong Bonus: Changed to 1,000 from its default of 100 per block the Kong Beast falls.
4. Extra life: Changed to award an extra life at 100,000 points instead of its default of 10,000 points. This was necessary to prevent an excess of extra lives being awarded!
