Lost Treasures of Gaming: Miner 2049er

leave a comment »

This week on Lost Treasures of Gaming the boys had on none other than Bill Hogue, creator of Miner 2049er.  As an avid fan in my youth (and I’ve heard quite a popular game in Europe) I was delighted to revisit this title I hadn’t touched in over 15 years.  Originally programmed for the Atari 800, this is the Commodore 64 version, but it captures the soul of the game quite nicely.  If you aren’t familiar with this game that is, according to Hogue, a Donkey Kong hybrid with Pac-Man, you should do yourselves a favor and give this addicting and challenging title a try.
