Pick Axe Pete!

Pick Axe Pete! is a timeless classic released on the Magnavox Odyssey 2 console in 1982.

In this retro gem, you'll take control of Pick Axe Pete as he ventures deep into the Misty Mountain Mine in search of precious gold. The gameplay unfolds in a platformed mine, where you'll face the challenge of avoiding falling rocks while trying to strike it rich.

As you guide Pete through the mine, you'll encounter three doors leading to deeper sections. Keep an eye out for gold-bearing rocks bursting from these doors at random intervals. Pete's trusty pickaxe is his tool of choice to break these rocks, but beware, it can break too! When it does, you'll need to help Pete dodge the falling rocks by either jumping over them or crawling underneath.

The action intensifies when two rocks collide, revealing a new pickaxe for Pete. However, this new pickaxe will only remain onscreen for a limited time, adding an element of urgency to the game. Additionally, keys to unlock other levels within the mine will occasionally appear, flying tantalizingly within Pete's reach. Grabbing one of these keys allows Pete to unlock one of the doors, granting access to deeper levels and more challenges.

But beware, attempting to pass through a door without a key will leave Pete stuck and vulnerable to the relentless barrage of falling rocks. If a rock manages to hit Pete, it's game over, and your quest for gold ends.

Score points as you play: earn 1 point for each rock successfully evaded, 3 points for striking a piece of gold with your pickaxe, 5 points for acquiring a new pickaxe, 10 points for snagging a key, and a whopping 20 points for successfully passing through a door with a key in hand.

Experience the thrill of classic gaming with Pick Axe Pete! on the Magnavox Odyssey 2. Join Pete in his quest for riches, tackle challenging gameplay, and relive the nostalgia of this enduring retro adventure.
