The Video Game Critic
It sounds pretty generic, but each of the ten screens is innovative, presenting an entirely new challenge. My favorite contains slides and plays like Chutes and Ladders. The simple, colorful graphics are very clean and attractive, and the control isn't bad either. Miner 2049er is an addictive platform game that has withstood the test of time very well.
Digital Press - Classic Video Games
This game has it all. Tireless, entertaining, consistent game play; above average graphics and sound effects; an original reworking of an established theme; and a darn good sense of humor. Even the 5200 controller works reasonably well with this game. Miner 2049er for the 5200 gets the highest recommendation, and is, without a doubt, in a class above other great climbing contests like Donkey Kong and Space Panic.
