I'm planning to make a only go left, only go right and finally a smart play.

This is my only go left try.

This game offers a huge challenge and you shouldn't read any tips if you want/like to beat on your own.

 

This is one of the hardest game to beat and, in some sense, I will never be able to do it!
Actually it is a puzzle game and I never really figured it out on my own. I didn't think it had a maximum score to be achieved and I even didn't discover you're running in a big circle.
And the puzzle's challenge is huge! You have to take carefully note of screens and learn your path, not to mention drawing your strategy in a notebook doesn't fit my gaming taste... So I classify Pitfall much more difficult to solve than modern games. Funny, one AA member once wrote he has problems to not get stuck in modern games, but Pitfall was one of the few games he could beat!!!
For my third attempt (the smart play) I will surely search for a map.

Man, this is a KILLER year for game selection in the club! Some absolute classics. I suck at navigating the tunnels, so for me, this will be an endurance run. Can't wait!

Surprised that I made it to "Jungle Master". Survived the 20 minutes on my last life and found two treasures in a row right before the clock ran down. Phew...

 

Pitfall! (Game 1BB): 85,465.

 

Going straight left without any shortcuts by the way.

I just played this last year on my Flashback 2+. Was one treasure away from a perfect score, but ran out of time.

It happened to me a couple of times in the same screen.

If you ended in this screen, I suspect we took a wrong path...

Going left with no passages, and I hit one stupid log.

 

97994

 

I guess I'm going to have to work on passages, but I've always seen it as a chore.

Had to switch from my ascii SG to a genesis pad for this game.

Hopefully I can play again this week and improve.

I realize that to be even remotely competitive this week I am going to have to break down and "cheat" and use that damned map of the tunnels. Since everyone rolled Frogger last week, I need to at least be in the running for 2nd place this week as well. Sheesh. This is a cutthroat league.
