    This is what they said about Miner 2049er...

    Miner 2049er emerged as the unequalled popular choice among Arkle (like Oscars) voters. Going strictly by the popular vote it would have, or come close to copping no fewer than three 'Game of the Year' Arcade Awards.
    The Arcade Awards Judging Committee having heard the voice of the gaming nation, recommend that a new award be created this year and given to Miner 2049er. It therefore gives us great pleasure to announce the institution of the 1984 Grand Arcade Award for the Best Electronic Game of the Year.
    Editor of Electronic Games

    Last year Miner 2049er won a landslide victory as Electronic Game of the Year. Now this delightful multi-screen climbing and jumping game has ascended the next rung on the ladder of fame in the same high style by coasting to a triumph in the Hall of Fame voting. Miner 2049er has historical significance as well as intrinsic value. It was the first electronic game designed for the home market which could be played on almost every videogame and computer system. The multi-publisher licencing made Miner the first home game to acquire a hobby-wide reputation on a par with the leading games found in the family amusement centres. Bounty Bob Lives'.
    Electronic Games Hall of Fame

    'When I saw the result - Miner 2049er - I said "Let me take it to everybody in the world." The response has been amazing. We collected the biggest advance orders ever'.
    Barry Friedman - International Computer Group U.S.A.

    Bounty Bob will leave them speechless!
