I am publishing HANDY PICK HANK on cartridge for the ATARI 2600. I worked out an agreement with Jon Reder.
I hope to have these available the week after Christmas.

I love the whole set of Quest For The Rings, but I think Pick Ax Pete is Ed's best game. It's a unique game full of possibilities and features. This version of Atari is fairly streamlined, but it's fun in its own way. What I missed most was the straight jump. Perhaps if he launched the game with Pick Ax Pete, with the character on the cover, would have more appeal to the public Odyssey (who knows with an autograph of Ed) ??? ???

I threw this a little more. I think another essential thing in this game would be the "dark door". I also think that the level of difficulty should rise, after some practice the game is easy.

The "Dark Door" does happen in Handy Pick Hank...  the level color is random with each door entered and black does happen... :)
