Philips Videopac 43 Pickaxe Pete

Pickaxe Pete is a thrilling classic game developed by Philips, Magnavox, and Ed Averett for the Philips Videopac 43 system.

In this captivating retro adventure, players take on the role of Pickaxe Pete, a brave miner armed with a pickaxe, ready to tackle the challenges of the underground mine.

Starting in the center of the screen, Pickaxe Pete faces an onslaught of boulders coming from three doors, bouncing down the mine-shafts. Each boulder destroyed by Pete's pickaxe earns the player 3 points, but the pickaxe wears out over time and eventually disappears. The player must then adapt, either jumping over boulders for 1 point each or racing to the bottom of the mine to retrieve a new pickaxe for a 5-point bonus.

When boulders collide, they explode, revealing either a new pickaxe, a key, or nothing at all. Collecting a key allows Pete to enter doors that lead to the next level, adding a strategic layer to the game. The combination of quick reflexes, strategic planning, and the pursuit of high scores makes Pickaxe Pete a timeless classic that continues to engage and entertain gamers of all ages. Relive the excitement and challenge of Pickaxe Pete on the Philips Videopac 43!
