Power Pete

Does anyone know where I can get a full (and free) version of Power Pete? Maybe known as Mighty Mike to some...

I used to play it loads when I was young, I'd love to give it a go again!

It's still available on the Pangea site, though obviously it's still MacOS 9 only; so you'll need a Mac with Classic (or a very old Mac!) to play it. (or maybe SheepShaver might do it).

Unlockable full version

Yeah, the problem is that I am running Lion, and don't have an older Mac
I'll have to try with an emulator I guess.
I just wanted to know if there's a version that doesn't require an emulator, because I find it hard to set up.

No there is no version that works with Lion or SNow Leopard.
You need Sheepshaver.
I used the guide here to set it up:
