Matthew Smith’s wonderful 80’s platformer Manic Miner is now available on the Xbox 360.
Hidden away in the Indie Games section of the Marketplace, it’s the latest game available and it’s there for just 240 Microsoft Points. It’s an Indie game so that means no Achievements, but – believe it or not – back in the day such a system didn’t exist.
It’s less than 2mb to download, too, so it’s pretty much instant, and there’s various options including scanlines and full screen. Emulation seems perfect (to me at least) but the free demo will give you a good taster of what to expect.
See if you can get over 1700 points on Central Cavern.
