The MSX version of Manic Miner was produced by Software Projects in 1984. It’s a rare British MSX title, written by Cameron Else. It’s also fast and beautifully playable.
Graphically, the MSX version is almost identical to the ZX Spectrum original, but with a slightly different colour palette. Where the MSX version does beat the original is in terms of frame rate and lack of slowdown – the extra power of the MSX delivers a speedy and responsive experience.
This is up there with the best Manic Miner conversions, and is maybe even arguably the best out of all of them.
