In 1983 Matthew Smith and published by Bug-Byte released the well known classic of Manic Miner for the ZX Spectrum. Although it was later released again by Software Projects, it was the first game in the willy series and was inspired by the Atari 800 game 'Miner 2049'. Not only was it voted number 25 in the Your Sinclair official top 100 Spectrum games of all time, but it had in game music, and sound effects, and if you ever remembered Jet Set Willy, a high amount of addictive gameplay. But today's news isn't for the ZX Spectrum, but a developer by the name of Tezz has ported over the original game to the Atari XL/XE!
