Title: September 2012 - Pick-Axe Pete
Post by: Chris! on September 01, 2012, 04:45:50 PM
We last played this one in late 2007, so we've probably got some new people who haven't played this one yet (like me.) So submit your score, and this round will end 10/31.

ccc--- - 1205
Rafael - 296
RickO2 - 212
VideopacBelgium - 87

I tried, but it seems Dieter is the King of the montain. I just scored over 1000 one time in my life. Do you have some good tips. After get the key you go to the door or you try to get some more pick-axe ???

I always play game 6. I go to the topmost platform and stand at the wall on the left side. There I am pretty safe. As soon as a key appears on the left side, I go jump into the door.

Nice strategy :). I tried it while and felt is really possible to do great scores this way. Unfortunatelly, Iīm boulder breaker compulsive. I canīt avoid to chase a rock!

I use 6 too. Only difference though, once I have a key, I move to middle levels to smash holders until they start moving really fast. Then I head for a door.

Chasing the boulders is not good, because you will often end without a pickaxe in the midst of nowhere, and that can be deadly especially in higher levels  ;D

Yes it can, but Pete always is a risk taker.  ;)

Thanks for the tip.  I was able to get to 631 using level 6.  Still along ways from the record but it was probably my best in almost 30 years   :D
