Pixie Pete is a fixed screen action title filled with dirt, carrots and mutant dinosaurs. All that the innocent pixie wanted to do was collect his carrots and have them for dinner. As he was walking underground, however, he noticed all kinds of mutant monsters and phantoms hovering around. From that moment on, he knew what he had to do. In order to protect his carrots, he must to eradicate these enemies!
In order to get rid of these pests, the pixie must use a pumping mechanism that inflates them like balloons, filling them up until they burst. Mischievous little pixie! While bursting enemies is important for success, you'll also have to collect carrots strewn about in the dirt.
Levels contain a single screen with various enemies lurking about. There are also a number of carrots located near enemies and other inconvenient locations. As Pixie Pete moves through the dirt he leaves trails. Because the mutant dinosaurs cannot travel through the dirt themselves, they must be dug free and then lured into the middle of the screen — the pumping mechanism only works here.
While mutants cannot travel through the ground, phantoms can and will. Bursting these baddies is a little trickier, as the ghosts can still move while being pumped. Bursting enemies will earn the pixie a number of points: 100 for the mutants and 200 for phantoms. Collecting a carrot adds 10 points to the overall total.
When the pixie's lives have run out the game is over. When he bursts all the enemies and collects all the carrots, the game moves on to the next level. Though similar to Dig Dug, Pixie Pete contains different characters and background visuals. ~ Matthew House, All Game Guide
