Peter Pepper’s Ice Cream Factory – 10 Forgotten ’80s Video Games
In the wake of the Morrissey-alienating success that was ‘Burgertime,’ Data East decided to create another adventure for its cook character, Peter Pepper. And so ‘Peter Pepper’s Ice Cream Factory’ was born.
More of a remake of ‘Burgertime’ than a sequel, it replaces wads of meat with frozen confections. It actually is way more enjoyable than its predecessor thanks to some lively colors and smooth gameplay mechanics. (Not to mention the absence of evil hot dogs).
Tragically, players were more interested in seeing Pete cook up hamburgers than dessert, and he soon faded into obscurity.
