Power Pete is a computer game developed by Pangea Software and published by the Interplay Entertainment Corporation under the MacPlay brand name. It was released in 1995 and packaged with Mac OS 7 on new Macintosh Performa computers. It is a third-person shooter game with a single camera angle almost directly above the character. The player's character is an action figure named Power Pete who has to save the fuzzy bunnies of the doll department from the bad toys while progressing through the fifteen levels of the game. It is rated E for Everyone.
It won Best Arcade Game of the Year for 1995 from Macworld magazine and was a runner up in the MacUser magazine Best New Game award for 1995. Pangea regained the rights to it in 2001 and re-released it in upgraded form as a shareware named Mighty Mike. The new version runs on Mac OS 9 and Classic compatible Mac OS X operating systems, although it won't run natively on Intel-based Macs. Using a Macintosh Emulator such as SheepShaver emulating Mac OS 9.0.4, Mighty Mike can be run on an Intel-based Mac.
... Once Power Pete rescues all the fuzzy bunnies the player can move on to the next area ... Sometimes a power-up will appear where the destroyed toy used to be ... This can be either ammo or a special power-up ...
Famous quotes containing the word power:
“In night when colours all to black are cast,
Distinction lost, or gone down with the light;
The eyea watch to inward senses placed,
Not seeing, yet still having power of sight
Gives vain alarums to the inward sense”
