I wonder why [MOD] Manic Miner - Highscore Challenge - https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 6&id=34429 has this screen capture?

Looks like it was captured just at the end of the level, when everything flashes.
I took that. I felt that because it was a Hi-Score based game, the screen should demonstrate the difference between that and Manic Miner level 1.

Is the Ninjajar youtube video linked to the right one in the database?
The video is on the ATM version but the video seems to be the 128 version?
Regards.

You're right—the youtube RZX should be linked to the 128 version. I don't know if it's Einar or Daren that need to fix it, but I'll add it to the list.

Great game.

appears to have been made with The Quill rather than the Professional Adventure Writer, judging from the file structure on the tape and the results of UNPAWing a snapshot of the game.

The games...

Lost in the Desert
https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 96&id=9914

and

Crash
https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 6&id=15920

are actually the *same* game.

The game was billed as 'Lost in the Desert' when it appear on The Guild's Quill Thrill Volume 1 compilation, so 'Lost in the Desert' seems the best title to list it under.

Quill Thrill Vol 1
https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 6&id=13168

I hope to discover the name of the author at some point.
