    This is sad really,anyone remember the infinate lives cheat for the speccy? 6031769 lol One of the CLASSIC games for the Spectrum although whoever programmed the amiga version failed to put a critical ledge in the right position and so you couldn`t complete the level...... Thanks Mathew smith for creating what was one of my most enjoyable periods in my youth playing Manic Miner.
