Manic Miner is one of the earliest platform games.. and probably the first one I played. It was made for the ZX Spectrum in 1983 by Matthew Smith . More info in here.

I’m demaking this mega classic game, as It would have been made in 1981 instead of 1983 using a IBM PC with CGA graphics card (I didnt know this card until the 90’s IIRC). More info here.

I’m using Construct 2, and so far I have first two screens… platform physics is different but good enough to homage this great game…

This is the original…

This is mine…

You can try it here. (cursor to move, Z to jump).

My plan is to add tomorrow:

  • Intro screen
  • Level 3
  • Sfx and bgm
