Pitfall! was originally created by Activision in 1982 and was the second best-selling game for the Atari 2600. Now you can play this classic hit on your android and iOS devices.
The intro credits to the game pay homage to the games original 8-bit awesomeness, but, a little to our chagrin, the actual game itself uses more updated graphics. While we miss the 8-bit format of Pitfall!'s glory days, we like the opportunity to play the game in this format.
So here's a basic overview of how the game works. You play as Pitfall Harry as he runs to escape the volcano. Pitfall Harry runs on his own, but you control when he jumps, ducks, uses his whip and so on.
We would go into more detail, but it's just so much more fun to play it yourself.
It's pretty fast-paced, and a lot of fun. We definitely suggest it as your new super addictive app that consumes just a little too much of your time.
