Published in Personal Computer Games #10


A conversion of the classic Atari VCS game which doesn't look so much classic as plain dull on the Commodore 64.

The object is to guide Pitfall Harry through a jungle full of trouble and collect 32 treasures in the 20-minute time limit. Alligators, ponds, pits and scorpions can be avoided by jumping or grabbing hold of swinging vines.

Although the animation is good, there's not enough graphic interest or gameplay excitement.
