The Video Game Critic
Is Pick Axe Pete a legitimate classic or a poor-man's Donkey Kong? That depends on who you ask, but few can argue that this game is hard as balls. You begin in the center of seven platforms. Three doors are scattered about, but you can't enter without a key. You can drop unharmed between levels, and ladders periodically appear so you can climb. Bounders are continuously rolling and bouncing all over the place. Fortunately this guy Pete is one nimble bastard. Using various joystick/button combinations you can duck, jump, somersault, and roll to safety. The animations that accompany these moves are very smooth and pleasing to the eye.
Pickel Peter ist den Philips-Programmierern gut gelungen. Eine aufregende Punktejagd ganz ohne Weltraum und Laserstrahlen, die auch über längeren Zeitraum hinweg zum Spiel reizt.
