The Video Game Critic (May 05, 2001)
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.
Miner 2049er is a lot of fun with 10 screens of varied obstacles and scenarios. This game stays fresh longer than most. It's unique and well thought out, leaving behind the repeating-screen format of so many platformers.
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.
