HSC Fun !WEEKEND! Challenge - Manic Miner 2021

Post by MartinH »

HSC Fun WEEKEND Challenge - Manic Miner 2021
Friday, Sep 24 12:00GMT - Sunday, Sep 26 23:59GMT

Since we played Manic Miner quite recently, I thought it would be fun to give TobyLobster's much improved 2021 release a go.

Disc here: http://bbcmicro.co.uk/gameimg/discs/356 ... WMINER.ssd

And to give it a really good go instead of just a one day challenge I thought it would be even more fun to make a weekend of it, hence the HSC Fun Weekend Challenge!

Usual rules apply, post scores below (with screenshot for evidence) to enter!

My first go at this one and I only made it up to Eugenes Lair.
Mind you, that was with a cat stamping all over me :-x

Got as far as the mutant telephones this time.
I know I got further than this before (bitd on the Spectrum version) but I just can't remember the way round this level.

Incidently, even this new version, Miner Willy doesn't behave in quite the same way as in the Spectrum version.

I know I can do better, need to re-adjust for the smoother timing.

First go and lost it on the processing plant. Silly mistakes!

What an improvement this is over the original release! Smooth, fast, responsive controls and collision detection that works properly! TobyLobster has done a fine job with this!

Finally cracked the mutant telephones.
Flew through the Ore refinery and forgot how to do the Return of the Alien Kong beast :?

This is about as far as I can get on this one.
The skylab landing bay has always been a bit of a tough one to pass.
