Manic Miner

Manic Miner is a classic platform game originally written for the ZX Spectrum by Matthew Smith and released by Bug-Byte in 1983.

Miner Will, stumbles upon an ancient, long forgotten mine-shaft. On further exploration, he finds evidence of a lost civilisation far superior to our own, which used automatons to dig deep into the Earth's core to supply the essential raw materials for their advanced industry. After centuries of peace and prosperity, the civilisation was torn apart by war, and lapsed into a long dark age, abandoning their industry and machines. Nobody, however, thought to tell the mine robots to stop working, and through countless aeons they had steadily accumulated a huge stockpile of valuable metals and minerals, and Miner Willy realises that he now has the opportunity to make his fortune by finding the underground store.

In each of the twenty caverns are several flashing keys, which you must collect before your oxygen supply runs out. Once you have collected the keys in one cavern, you must then go to the now-flashing portal, which will take you to the next cavern. You must avoid enemies like Poisonous Pansies, Spiders, Slime, and Manic Mining Robots.
