    Pifall! is an average running game, with some nice graphics and music. Touch controls don't always work as they should, however, and the experience delivered is everything but original.

    Endless runner fans that don't mind the genre's frustrating one-hit deaths will enjoy Activision's refined take on the growing genre. Pitfall's similarity to its predecessor and reliance on In-App Purchases prevent it from being a true mobile gaming great, but I still enjoyed this daring volcano escape.

    The relentless push towards purchasing and a poorly thought out reward system plagues Pitfall!. Other games use upgrades to help players make permanent progress and that feeds the addiction. Pitfall!, however, falls into an avaricious money pit and ultimately feeds frustration.

    Pitfall! manages to bring the gameplay of the original version to iOS, but it borrows –maybe too much– from other iOS/Android games like Temple Run. Apart from this, it's a fast and entertaining game, offering a very addictive and refreshing proposal on iOS. Ideal for those never-ending summer days.

    By abandoning the original and failing to match the best Temple Run clones on the market, Pitfall has misjudged its leap onto the iOS platform.

    Activision had an opportunity to rekindle gamers affection for the Pitfall! brand, and they may still just win the hearts of casual gamers. But they'll do so in the ugliest way possible, by ripping of an independent competitor and begging for cash. The gameplay is like the gold statue in Indiana Jones. An enticing trap.

    Activision cashes in on a classic by making one of the most important console games in history just another endless running game.
