Stitchgasm! Manic Miner Mini Masterpiece


A little project of mine that I did for fun. I’ve got so many medium or big things on the go at the moment that it was nice to do something that only took a couple of hours.

I like all the pixel art and sprite stitch stuff that’s floating around, although I lack the skill to create my own. But having decided to do something retro, Manic Miner seemed an obvious choice. Manic Miner came out in 1983 on the ZX Spectrum and I loved it. I was eight years old and never managed to finish it. A couple of years ago I put a ZX Spectrum emulator on my old computer, and still never managed to finish it.

Here’s a shot of the back – I like a tidy back, although with something as simple as this, it’s not too difficult to keep things neat.
