TeleMatch (Jul, 1983)
Mir gefällt beim Miner die Grafik sehr gut. Und wenn die sich ständig wiederholenden Takte des Songs „Oh,my darling Clementine" — bei Spielbeginn — auch etwas nerven: Das alles ist witzig gemacht und sein Geld allemal wert. Mit dem Computervorbild (Big Five Software) kann diese VCS-Variante durchaus konkurrieren.

Bien sûr, le champ d'action de la version signée Tigervision pour le VCS Atari est moins vaste et les caractères plus dépouillés ; mais, avec trois tableaux différents qui regroupent les éléments les plus intéressants de la version ordinateur, Miner 2049 s'inscrit comme le plus complet des jeux d'escalade pour le VCS. Recommandé !

It’s rare for me to point out an individual programmer as a failure, but Bill Hogue, your version of Miner 2049er SUCKS! You’ve turned a game that was, on other consoles was a fun, fast-action Donkey Kong-style romp with elements of Pac-Man and made it mercilessly SLOW.
The Video Game Critic (Mar 20, 2012)
Then there's the animation, which is unforgivably choppy. It's nearly impossible to jump over the aliens, and when you lose a life, all of the progress you've made on the current screen is negated, forcing you to restart your painful journey. Audio-wise, the game contains a putrid rendition of the song "Clementine" that'll have you running to the latrine to induce vomiting. If you want to experience Miner 2049er, do yourself a favor and track down the superior Atari 5200 or Colecovision versions.
