Central Cavern

What's the ZX Spectrum doing here?

After my last post about the unreleased Atari ST version of Manic Miner, I got talking to my mate Peter Jรธrgensen who said he used to struggle to beat the first level. Of course, I laughed at him as I've actually completed it.

Okay, I struggled on The Warehouse and Skylab Landing Bay so had (ahem) extra lives but how could he struggle so much? So, with a bunch of arrogance, I downloaded the Speccy game and decided to record my success for him to weep over. However, it didn't go as well as I'd planned - perhaps I should have practised? lol

Manic Miner for the ZX Spectrum is emulated by my Atari ST using this Speccy emulator. Note: the music slows it down so I turned it off. Otherwise, I'm mightily impressed with the emulation!!


  1. i can see Steve we play the level in a very similar way, i was just so must faster ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    1. I juuuuust needed that extra little nip of speed and I'd have made it to the end. Honest.
