  • Summary: Harry, Jr.
    I've been taken captive by the spirit of an evil Mayan warrior. Need help right away!
    Continue journey as planned - through the rain forests and mines, past the waterfalls and ruins. But be careful...the Mayan empire is filled with deadly traps and enemies. Think fast and move
    even faster.
    Hurry! Time is running out...

  1. Fun, challenging and addictive.
  2. 70
    Challenging both in terms of difficulty and convention (you do more than just run to the right), Pitfall looks gorgeous on the small screen, especially its fluid character animation, while the controls respond well and the sounds are sharp.
  3. It’s hard enough to see on the Advance as it is – some of the darker areas in Pitfall make the game unplayable.
  4. 53
    Wasn't great in 1995, and it's even less impressive in 2002.
  5. 50
    The Game Boy Advance version, for shame, does not have the classic Pitfall.
  6. The control is sloppy and the graphics and level design confusing. The lack of the original Pitfall is the final nail in the coffin.
  7. It seems that the Pitfall series has lost its luster over time, and this port just solidifies that fact.
