Just in time for Christmas, PICK AXE SANTA! is a "new game" for the Odyssey2 and Videopac.

It is a hack of the 1982 classic PICK AXE PETE!
Programming modifications by: SELECT GAMES

IT'S A TYPICAL DAY AT THE NORTH POLE

Santa Claus is a "buff" guy.
Have you ever wondered what makes him so fit?
Outside Santa's castle, in his Christmas tree farm,
he has created a regimen of physical fitness activity
that keeps him in shape!
The elves hurl magical coal balls at Santa.
He grabs his pick axe and must destroy or avoid the coal.
Santa can jump and climb the branches of a Christmas tree.
For extra gain, he can ascend up, up, up the Christmas tree
and top it with a star!

The object of PICK AXE SANTA is to place a star on the top of the tree,
avoid coal balls, and beat Kris Kringle's personal high score in the process
( 1225 points ) Get it? 12-25 is December 25. Christmas!

Help Santa Claus stay in shape and stay healthy
by taking part in this PICK AXE PETE-style workout.

Includes:  game cartridge with a color printed label and a 4-page color printed game instruction manual

Price: $30 ( plus shipping )

I'm not a huge fan of hacks (Grim Reaper Pete was a neat idea, but I don't think I'll be playing it often). But I actually found this one quite fun... Gameplay is very altered, and even though there's some quirks and luck involved, I kept trying for a higher score. The built in very high score was a bit too high though...
