Smile After almost twenty years, I've finally completed Manic Miner.

No other point, just a good all over feeling I'd like to share!

Classic game for a classic computer........the Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Nobody outside the UK will have heard of it, but you really missed out.

It was better on my Commodore 64. I had it for my Spectrum 48k as well.
Classic game, real classic. There were unlimited lives cheats in Crash and Zap 64 mags, back in the days.
I think it was popular in the U.S as well.

congrads. Once I get my comps up and running the way I want them to be, I'll try out the game, but on google, I found the homepage, or what I think it is, for the linux port. Its source code.
