Wanted: Manic Miner / Jet Set Willy
« on: September 03, 2009, 09:19:28 PM »
I (as in AndyRCM), as many of you know collect Manic Miner and Jet Set Willy for ANY platform it is available for . . . :)

I am still looking for various versions/systems etc . . . if you have MM or JSW for any system and would like to a) donate b) sell c) barter for something please let me know!

One version that keeps eluding me is MM for the speccy with the guy whistling on the front cover! :(

I don't have MM for the Beeb . . . and obscure ones keep appearing, I have it for the MSX, Speccy, C64, Amstrad so far I think?

Andy, I'll have a look and see if I've still got a copy of the MM 'Whistler' cover. I did at one stage, but may have sold it on. Do you have all the other Speccy variants (such as the Software Projects one, the budget issue etc ?)

GBA MM ? - I didn't know you could get that. Who ported that ? (I'm assuming it was a port and not a remake..)

The most obscure version I know of must be the version of Jet Set Willy for the MSX which comes on a HudsonSoft 'Bee Card' (the precursor to the HuCard) and needs the Bee Card reader cartridge (which I do have) to interface with the MSX itself!

Manic Miner came out on the Dragon 32 too didn't it? And there appears to be an Amiga version too, which I wasn't aware of until I just looked on LemonAmiga!
