Yeah the dreaded gator jump got me once and the other death came when a pit opened and I mis-judged it lol

Is there ever a reason to go down in the pit? I see a ladder in some screens...

That's not the pit, that's a downstairs section that you can and should go into. You will see what the pit is... Seriously though, you roam through the screens trying to survive and grab as much loot 'treasure' that you can find. Fun game.... 👍

I would say so...maybe a strategic shooter.  🙂

Pitfall is a classic of video game history...the first real "platformer".  I bet you'll enjoy it!

Played a few games with my son just now. It's pretty fun! We weren't able to locate any treasure though. I can see how this one basically invented a genre.

Just keep advancing screens and you will see treasure.  Go left your right (left is easier), and you'll see them.

Ahh ok... We kinda started going back and forth, wondering if we were missing them down below. Probably didn't keep going long enough.

Yeah just continue in the same direction until the game is over.  I don't believe any treasures are sitting in tunnels.

This is my highest ever score (since I've never played this version), I survived for nearly 90 seconds (I have *way* more time left on the clock than that other score that was posted above!), and it is impossible that I will be beat in this game.

 

Any comments to the contrary will be considered a direct attack and will prompt me to wreak havoc on the forums in retaliation. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What? Too soon? ;-)

I always loved how the treasure has an arrow that blinks above it, haha. Also, you go through so many screens just to get 2 of em and I feel like I'm in a repeating mario bros type castle maze.

That is such truth. That's why I kept thinking I needed to back track!

I seem to recall the game being all about how far you can get before time runs out.  Much less about survival than speed, although obviously a lack of survival will result in scores like mine.

I just learned that every screen you advance via underground tunnel is equivalent to three screens up above... 🤔

I had totally forgotten that.  That does ring a bell in that I thought I had previously memorized where you should go underground, where you should come up, and the occasional bit of backtracking to get a bypassed treasure.  


Crap, now you've got me totally overthinking things.  🙂
