Remember the 1982 Activision classic Pitfall! from the Atari 2600? It’s probably been a while since you played it, but that’s about to change. The jungle-crawler has been revamped and relaunched on iOS — 30 years after its first debut — promising thrilling new environments and twists on the classic gameplay that will “appeal to fans of all generations.”
The free-running adventure has been likened to titles like Temple Run. Your mission is simple: run as far as you can through ever changing environments with narrow trenches, dark caverns, and cascading waterfalls.
Escape the wrath of an angry volcano while collecting ancient treasures in PITFALL!, an adrenaline-fueled, free-running adventure set in a deadly jungle with twists and turns that will always keep you on your toes. As the iconic Pitfall Harry, test your skills by racing through jungles, caves and native villages while avoiding death-defying obstacles such as fiery volcanic flames, tumbling ancient artifacts, and narrow cliff side pathways. Challenge your reflexes by jumping, sliding, and using your deadly whip to take out classic PITFALL! foes like rattlesnakes and scorpions while avoiding the death grip of a crocodile’s jaw as you swing across ravines. Make sure to always keep a watchful eye as danger lurks around every corner!
Along the way you’ll level up and trade in your loot to unlock handy power-ups that will enhance your experience and “customize your wardrobe.” When you hit those high scores, you can share them on Facebook and Twitter to stake your claim as the king of the jungle.
Whether you played the original or not, Pitfall! on iOS is well worth a look — especially if you enjoy free-running games that are hard to put down. It’s a universal title compatible with all your iOS devices, priced at just $0.99.
