... there was Manic Miner.



Here's the wikipedia article about Manic Miner, which was an absolute classic game on the Sinclair ZX Spectrum.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manic_Miner

I've been meaning to make something to post on here, as it's been a while. I bought a variety pack of aida at the Knitting and Stitching Expo in Birmingham this weekend just passed (where I won 100 of threads from DMC!) and wanted something nice and easy to do.
Seeing all the sprite stitch stuff inspired me, and so I went even further retro than the norm. Managed to do it in about two hours.
FYI, Manic Miner came out in 1983 - I was eight at the time and never managed to complete it.

And for good measure here's the back. Nice and tidy, just how we likes it.
