Miner 2049er – Commodore Vic-20 – Reston Software


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.

Miner 2049er – Atari 8bit home computer – Big Five


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.
