Game Description:

Halloween Pitfall! style! Things look very different in this Nightmarish

themed objects including bouncing Jack-o-lanterns, tombstones and chomping skulls.
Even Pitfall Harry gets a horror make-over. you can d/l the game here

 

in case of tie scores: best time left on the on clock determines ranking

(at the end of the round points will be awarded(10 (for first) to 2(for tenth) 1 for everybody after 10
(any scores submitted after this round ends will be given 1 point)

I think it's impossible to get a perfect score for this game, there's screen's as soon as you enter them the
pumpkins are right on you. You can't help but lose points.

if it's only graphical hack the game shouldn't changes much

I made that hack forever ago using the the source code and a compiler.

It should be only graphical changes, though I think I may have altered the jump a little to help the player to be able to jump over the scorpion/skull.

Surprised someone's playing it. :)

you did basically what I did with keystone kapers did a graphical hack of the game though some aspects of have changed like the missile/jet plane is lowered and the cop/laserman hat is higher.

 

I did play your on my harmony cart it's really good hack I have to say

One question, what is that thing supposed to be for Pitfall Harry's head?


And one tip - don't touch the cross/tombstone. ;)

Slightly off topic, you what might be a cool Pitfall hack?
Add some of the objects/items from Private Eye into Pitfall since Private Eye uses the Pitfall
background for some of the game.
The bird, rat, vase, comb, button, falling bricks, flying flowerpots, oil slick.
Maybe change the money bags to Henri Le Fiend.

The pumpkins are wider than the logs and will deduct points when you enter a screen. A perfect Pitfall score is not possible on this hack.

 

Here's my entry for this round.

Thanks for backing me up on that. :)

Maybe this hack needs hacked to make the pumpkins smaller.

Yeah, I agree with the previous posts. Smaller jack-o-lanterns would be better so they don't nip at your heels immediately on some screens.
