Pitfall - that great game we all remember playing for hours straight on our Atari 2600 systems when we were kids. Yep, the game's star, Harry, has come a long way, moving through various platforms, Jaguar, SNES, Playstation, even PC. Sure, we'd all like to forget all about Super Pitfall for the NES, and maybe this incarnation will help."
Assume the role of Harry, a fearless, rough-and–ready treasure seeker who battles evil using his athletic ability and a knapsack filled with adventure gear. Harry must race against a rival explorer to find hidden treasures, which in the wrong hands could spell doom for him and his friends. The vast landscape, ranging from forests to ancient ruins to subterranean mines, provides countless game options as you face the consequences of your decisions. Cross treacherous jungle terrain and dark areas filled with puzzles, tricks and traps, swing on vines, avoid crocodiles and dodge rolling logs as you unearth artifacts and use your cunning to defeat dangerous foes.

Overall: Crocodiles, vine ropes, pits and natives. Avoid them all. Based from the original 1980 Pitfall game. Harry crashes his plain and has to rescue the other survivors and stay out of trouble doing so. Adventure through levels collecting Idols to purchase upgrades. Gameplay: Easy enough to control. You can slide Harry up and down the vines to jump farther if needed. You hop off crocidiles backs and run quickly across hot coals. The camera works with the white and black buttons. A "look" feature allows you to take control of the camera angle.
I doubt I would want to play it twice. And it seems lots of the levels are played twice. I mean: You pass a level only to be sent back to the same area to accomplish another task later. Graphics: Graphics are good and crisp. I was very pleased with the eye candy. Very cartoonish but clean. No dissapointments here. Sound: Plenty of ambient sounds. Water running, monkeys screeching, Natives chanting and drumming. Overall sound is good. Suggestions: Don't repeat the levels. How about autosave?
