''Manic Miner was released yesterday, ahead of time, on Xbox Live under the Indie Games banner by the classic games publisher Elite. Rather than run through the usual rigmarole of reviewing it like a modern game, I thought I’d do things a little differently, simply because it’s unfair to mark it on the same scale.
For most gamers over the age of 25, Manic Miner is one of the first titles they may have played on a home computer. Whether you were a Speccy, Amstrad or Commodore kid (or one of the many other formats it became available for), Manic Miner is one of those games that should stick out in your memory; I know it does for me.''
