NEW
YORK, NY, November 29, 2000 – Simon & Schuster Interactive and Pipe

their personal computers.

 

“Pipe
Dream Interactive continually strives to develop and introduce technologies
which allow us to more effectively market interactive properties, as well as
leverage them into new areas,” said Dan Kitchen, Vice President of Hand-Held

breaker. Scattered throughout the level are hidden items, such as a
skateboard, to help the M&M’s® throughout their quest.
