Miner 2049er was created by Big Five Software in 1982 and ported to a large array of systems (through different manufacturers). The game made its way to the Atari 2600, Atari 5200, Atari 400/800, Colecovision, Commodore 64, VIC-20, and Gameboy just to name a few. The goal was to put Miner 2049er on every system that could reproduce it faithfully, which is the reason there are so many ports of this title to numerous systems.

The TI-99/4A version of Miner 2049er only contains 8 of the 10 original screens. Most other ports included all 10 and the Colecovision version even added an extra level to bring its total to 11. The reason for the exclusion of 2 levels (Stations 1 and 8) probably had to do with memory constraints more than anything else.
