    so this is aimed at the vectrex version, but i would suspect it applies to arcade as well.

    if you stall too long a ghost ship appears for 3500 points. This seems to be there with the intention of stopping slow play so the designers without doubt had stalling in mind so its hard to imagine they ...

    ThanksJJT_Defender thanked this post
    So the only difference between the modes of pick axe pete is which floor pieces you start with. As the game progresses, that means two different beginning can transpose into each other so realistically, once people start making it furher into the game, its not much difference. level 9 does start ...

    i'll fully fund this myself if its not funded tomorrow, just giving others a chance to get in. Currently pick axe point is heavily about point pressing as the later levels are much harder. This leads to boring games where we're forced to spend a long time on the easy levels and then only ...
