Manic Miner is back!!!!!

Belive it or not, Manic Miner is due for release on Game Boy Advance on April 20th - It features updated graphics, all the original levels + 10 new ones, and best of all....the original music is still there!! That and Broken Sword are surely reasons to buy a GBA!!!

There is a homebrew NGPC port of Manic Miner, very true to the original. Brilliant stuff, you should check it out if you like Manic Miner.

Works brilliantly on the real thing

Yeah - One of the greatest games of all time Broken Sword (the point and click game with George and Nico) is coming out for GBA! And Furthermore, for PC and XBox in Jan 2003....Broken Sword 3 The sleeping Dragon!!! I'm counting the days down!

Its probably old news for you folks but Jester Interactive have bought the licenses to some (think it might even be all) Graftgold games. They are doing versions of Paradroid and Uridium at the moment

Oh, and Jeff Minter is bringing back Llamasoft as well.

Sabre Wulf? That isometric game for ZX Spectrum that played a bit like Head Over Heels?

If it's that one... well, although it was by different houses, I could hope for a Head Over Heels remake too
