Manic Miner remake

Manic Miner is a quintessential platformer game that emerged in the early 1980s, developed by Matthew Smith for the ZX Spectrum. It stands as a hallmark of the 8-bit gaming era, celebrated for its innovative design and enduring charm. This is a quite faithful remake.
In Manic Miner, you guide Miner Willy through a series of twenty treacherous caverns. Each level presents a unique set of challenges, filled with hazards such as patrolling enemies, moving platforms, and deadly traps. The primary objective is to collect all the flashing objects in each cavern, which unlocks the exit to the next level.
