Programmed by Frank G., the Commodore 64 version was one of the better ports. Gameplay and graphics are nearly identical to the original with only minor differences in visuals, like the score font and the title screen.
This is the 1984 Commodore Vic-20 release from Reston Software by Jerry Brecher.
Only 7 of the original 10 levels are in this port.
This box and cart are in poor condition. If you have a nicer one and wish to donate it to the Miner 2049er Museum, please reply to this post! We’ll even accept just a picture if you don’t wish to part with yours.
This and the Atari 5200 version are the ones that started it all. These are the original versions that all the others are a port of.
There were a few cart/label variations — a picture label (with blue or black case) and a silver/blue text label with blue case. The silver labels tend to wear badly from handling, so it’s difficult to find one in good condition. Thanks to Paul (07pwb) for supplying a picture of a light blue label reproduction. It’s not surprising to see a repro label like this considering the tendency of the original to fade badly.
