Harry Jr. is back in search of his long lost father, but nothing has changed in this latest version of Pitfall. This game is exactly like the other Pitfall titles and brings little improvement in the sound and graphics.
You still travel through ancient Mayan ruins, whipping past pools of lava and fighting bats, rats, and cheetahs. None of the levels have been changed, so if you've played this before, here it is again.
Your arsenal of weapons includes rocks, smart bombs, and your trusty whip. You can use your whip to swing from ledges, hang from vines, and slap snakes into submission.
Controlling this battery of weapons is sometimes confusing. The Start button pauses the game, but it also cycles through your weapons. Jumping onto ledges is also tricky.
Pitfall's scenery hasn't changed in this version. Harry's movements are still poetry in motion, though, and the layered backgrounds are beautiful.
ProTip: Besides letting you continue, level markers also point you in the right direction.
The sound has minor improvements, but nothing noticeable. The jungle sounds are still clear, and all other sound effects are well done.
Pitfall will enthrall anyone who hasn't played the original Genesis, SNES, or Atari 2600 game. Everyone else has been through this jungle before.
