Cinq tableaux, des graphismes étonnants : un jeu passionnant.

Overall, Spike's Peak is not much fun. Frustration will probably take over before you can complete this game. Although that same frustration may keep bringing you back as you become determined to conquer that stupid mountain. The ending is not a good enough reward for your efforts, though; it is just a bunch of flashing lights.

I managed to get pretty decent at Spike’s Peak back in the day, but not without much Biblical weeping and gnashing of teeth. Bottom line: it sucked then and it sucks now. I’ve mentioned before that Xonox tended to put a lot of effort into graphics but frequently neglected to put a playable game in the cart. None of their titles highlight this as much as Spike’s Peak.

While the game's visuals are fine, the abrasive sound effects really got on my nerves. Spike's Peak's controls will kill your wrist, and if you do manage to reach the peak, you'll be subjected to one of the most irritating "endings" you'll ever witness. Enjoy.
