GAME TRIVIA

Miner 2049er was created by Bill Hogue. The title 'Miner 2049er' is a play on the nickname 'Miner 49er' given to those who flocked to California during the gold rush of the mid-19th century.

GAME DESCRIPTION

The objective of Miner 2049er is for Bounty Bob to survive all 11 game levels in succession without being destroyed. The game is over when the third Bounty Bob is destroyed. Miner hats in the upper left corner of the screen represent how many Bounty Bobs you have left. To reach each successive level, Bounty Bob must MASK the entire framework on the present level before the time display reaches 0. After all the framework has been masked, the Miner 2049ertime left on the clock is converted to points and added to your score.

OPINION

This is the first third-party title for ColecoVision. This is also the only version of this game with 11 levels. You will find elements of gameplay of Donkey Kong and Pac-Man. The game is better than it looks at first sight and strategy is important.

Note : 4/5
