Manic Miner 360 Makes Its Way To Xbox LIVE
UK based developer Elite Systems is bringing one of the most iconic games from the 1980’s to the Xbox LIVE Indie platform. Having passed “peer review”, Manic Minor 360 is now scheduled to hit consoles sometime during the weekend of June 29th (that’s next weekend for those not next to a calendar). Based off the original title for the ZX Spectrum back in 1983, Manic Miner 360 is staying true to form in all its 8-bit glory. No doubt this is going to make a great addition to the Xbox LIVE Indie family.
“The release of MANIC MINER 360 as an Xbox Live Indie Games is the next exciting step in bringing classic ZX Spectrum games to a new audience, via new devices and platforms and in the process restoring some order to the market. We began doing this some 18 months ago with our ZX Spectrum: Elite Collection Apps for iOS devices and in the intervening period there have been more than 100,000 paid instances. Assuming a positive reception and a successful launch, we’d expect to see MANIC MINER 360 followed by more classic ZX Spectrum Games” said Steve Wilcox from Elite.
Manic Miner 360 features:
- full-screen and bordered portrait play / display modes
- pixel filtering on / off option
- auto-save on exiting the game
- authentic ‘Spectrum’ sound
- infinite lives option
