Game Description & Reviews:
This is arguably the first platform game (definately the first on a console) your goal is to go from left to right on the screen, jumping over holes, lakes, and jungle creatures. the graphics are pretty good for it's time, especialy PF.harry's running animation. It's challenging, and the gameplay is solid, making it worth playing more than once. I recommend this to anyone with several hours to kill and a high-score lust.
"Pitfall!" is an absolute must-have for any Atari 2600 collection. This game, one of the best-selling Atari 2600 games of all time, is a true masterpiece for that console. Your objective as Pitfall Harry is to travel through the jungle avoiding all sorts of obstacles and hazards in order to collect all thirty-two treasures.
