MANIC MINER vs CHUCKIE EGG - WHICH IS BEST?

Postby Zeusdaz » Sun Apr 16, 2017 1:08 pm

Hi everyone and welcome to the April 2017 edition of the Which Is Best?
Last month I placed two Amiga shooters against each other,...X-Out & Z-Out, I can announce X-Out gained the victory with 20 votes with Z-Out claiming 15, Z-Out was storming ahead at the beginning by 12 votes to 5 but then X-Out started to crawl back to the point it was 14 all but in the end it overtokk Z-Out and claimed the victory,...nowhere near as many votes this time as the previous comparrison (Turrican vs Turrican II) but maybe it was all down to not many liking those games.

This month I'm going to test your loyalties and place two classic original ZX Spectrum platforms games against each other, one slow methodical and challenging, the other fast and furious, they are Manic Miner and Chuckie Egg, which do you think is the better game?!, only your votes will determine that,...happy voting! :-D
P.s, I will only count the votes stated in the comments below and on the Youtube video.

All the best, Zeus.

I played both extensively and completed both. I remember that large crazy bird chasing me around the screen at the end of Chuckie Egg. Both are classics but for me it's Manic Miner due to it being the first spectrum game I played and I really enjoyed it, so nostalgia plays its part! :)
