Bloody well done, this looks incredible.

Gah! I can only view this on mobile until tomorrow.

Small typo in the intro: "strange", not "extrange" smell.

Great stuff!

I like that you didn't make a copy of Manic Miner but instead created a lot of new levels with inspirations coming from different games.

By the way, how do you complete Level 2? I have to jump to collect the last coin and then I fall down close to exit but not touching it and lose a life.

You are doing yourself a disservice to call this a remake of anything!
