Manky is a 2009 platform game developed by Peter Vaas for the Commodore 64 and released in the Public Domain.

Gameplay

Manky is a single-screen, non-scrolling platform game where the player controls a character, named Manky, who must make his way through a labyrinth of platforms and ladders in order to collect keys and eggs to unlock a door to the toilet.

Along the way the player has to evade various enemies, like chickens (chicks) and bats and can collect grain as bonus items. After the door to the toilet has been unlocked the player has to approach the toilet and sit down on it to finish the level.

Development

According to its programmer Manky was written in assembly language on an Action Replay MKVI cartridge (or a similar extension cartridge for the Commodore 64). The game was frozen with the hardware and has several bugs and feels unfinished and it is not known whether the game has more than one level due to the problem that nobody else except for its creator has ever managed to complete the first level because of bugs that make controlling the player sprite very cumbersome. The game has very simple graphics and only very few sound effects.
