COLLECTING INFO
Rarity in the UK 5/10 Guideline Price 4. allow about 3 to ship
to UK also and possible customs charges). although you
should find one in the UK with a little patience, around the
2.50 mark and 1.50 postage. At this point Philips began
more intensely on arcade type conversion games, I'm not
sure this was released with a cardboard cover.

Pick Axe Pete was again pushing Atari's Buttons, This was the
Philips version of Donkey Kong and some would say the best
game on the Videopac console. No lawsuit was pursued
although Atari's feathers were ruffled.

A Plus version was released, but not a JOPAC, which is
surprising for such a popular title.

I have also included another proto/demo I stumbled upon,
there is no variation between this and the official release.
PLAYING INFO
Unlike Donkey Kong, there is no damsel to rescue, more
particularly a maze to clime, you do still have a pickaxe, which
disappears after a while, your up against time dodging falling
boulders waiting for your time to collect the key that will lead you
to freedom.
