So come on then, let’s be honest here … how many of you have REALLY played through this game and completed it? I am edging my bets that NO ONE has actually collected ALL 165 items WITHOUT using some kind of cheat.
Before I go on any further, how on earth did ZZAP64 magazine score this an overall score of 24%! What on earth were they thinking? Are they mad?
Anyway, Frank Gasking has been kind enough to provide us with the game ending, but it seems that he too is unable to get through the whole game without cheating (“,).

Willy finally makes it to his bed.

The final screen! HOLD ON! Isn’t this Manic Miner?!
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: It seems that the infinite lives cheat is active 😉 (Vinny: I have created a crazy hack for this game so that you can easily view the ending. Download it from here.)
SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once you get onto the bed, Willy automatically walks back to the beginning and then through to a secret room. All you get is the opening screen to Manic Miner with Willy jumping up and down.
COMMENTS:
Vinny: To be perfectly blunt, this game ending is poor. If we are expected to play through the whole game and collect ALL those items then at least there could have been a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Instead, we are presented with a screen from Manic Miner and Willy jumping up and down (oo-er). Am I missing something here? Should there be more?! 3/10 from me.
FINAL SAY: It’s a great game to play, but unfortunately it has a cack ending.

G.E. RATING: 3 / 10
