Has to be Manic Miner - very tough but never unfair. I finally managed to complete it after 25 years. What's with the fish & dagger, eh?
Jet Set Willy was great but spoiled by some fairly well-known bugs.
Chuckie Egg was fun but the inability to use a joystick and the trick to climbing ladders was a sod the first time you played it. But ultimately it didn't have the variety.
Dynamite Dan - just too hard to avoid the baddies. There's no subtlety to its gameplay like Manic Miner has. I'd rather be playing Wanted: Monty Mole, despite its random crushers and unfair trick of re-closing passageways if you died.

*whimpers as he can't decide*

How dare you do this to me? Choose between Manic Miner and Dynamite Dan (I've never really took to Chuckie Egg...) gah! Ah i chose Lukemia, um, Manic Miner in the end. But it was a nasty thing to do!
