With or without the music? Also, stand alone or a complete set?
Standalone without the music(or different music) should be relatively easy, I don't think the extra level does anything outside of what the 2600 could do.
I'd think the awesome thing to do would be a game genie\ knuckles style cart. Plug pitfall 2 in and play the whole game, probably with a b/w toggle for the haters that don't like pitfall2's music. You know its awesome
or play without the pitfall2 cart w/o music, or a unique soundtrack, just the expanded area. That would be the best of both worlds IMO. I think it would be doable, have the cart ping on power on, if it finds pitfall2 start with that, if not, start the extra area as its own game.
Yeah an all in one cart would be cool, but who doesn't like gimmicky gadgets..NO, YOU DON'T GET AN OPINION, SIT THE F#$% DOWN
I've played pitfall2 on other consoles a few times, even beating the initial area. First time was like "holy shit, a new area?!" But I've never actually played much of said area cause I mostly play the 2600 version. Most the time I get to the new area its like "oh yeah, I need to try that sometime" click.
(Edit) if someone makes a single cart variant with the full game, I'd make a minor change. As the second area is largely unplayed, on any system, I'd make a ladder spawn on the left on startup so you could go left and skip the first area. Or for the people who think this is blasphemy, if you go right, the ladder disappears. Or maybe if you leave the screen.
