While Atari, Activision. Imagic and Parker Brothers have been busy translating their VCS and Intellivision games for computer systems, Microfun has been going in in the other direction. Bounty Bob. the major miner of this or any other season, is now on ColecoVision in Miner 2049er, and none the worse for the move. In fact, the change of scene has done old Bob a world of good. The ColecoVision Miner is superior to the original Apple version in graphics, gameplay. sound and the number of mad, mad screens— eleven as opposed to the Apple's ten.

Auf das Spielgeschehen im Einzelnen eingehen zu wollen, erübrigt sich, ist doch die Abfolge hinlänglich bekannt. Nur soviel: Mit dieser Version liegt eines der komplexesten Videospiele überhaupt vor, und ColecoVision ist damit spielerisch in den Leistungsbereich grßerer Heimcomputer gelangt.
The Video Game Critic (Nov 26, 2004)
Yes it's all very derivative, but Miner's speedy pace and crisp graphics make it exceptionally fun and addictive. It's also intriguing to see what sort of imaginative challenge each new stage has in store. The second stage is clearly inspired by Chutes and Ladders, and the third has an elevator controlled by the numeric control pad. Miner 2049er is a whole lot better than it looks, and is regarded by many as a classic.
