Manic Miner was an awesome game. One of my childhood favourites. Never quite finished it but I did come very near I can still get a long way through it. The Warehouse level was particularly hard

One of my fav too, played it on the Oric which had 32 levels, the ZX Spectrum had only 20 IIRC. We use to play it all night with friends if you died you let the keyboard to the next guy in the queue.

I tried to play it with Amikit. Every other menu option seems to work fine, except "start game" which results in message "file not found".

i went round all 20 levels 5 times in one game.recently won a competition on google +.
30 years of playing manic miner on zx spectrum really paid off.
