Time to Start Traveling again! Let's take a 2 week trip to the jungle!!!

Crap...

I've put off Pitfall 2 for a long time. I knew I'd play it someday.

I don't have high expectations for myself(the reason I've put it off..), but we'll see how it goes...

I'll set out exploring first, I suppose...

Jungle Hunt-53,950!!!

Holy Crap, me!!!

I know this isn't "amazing", but it isn't suck either-sat down to beat my PB, a hard-earned day's work 21,040, and dang if I didn't!!!

I really remember before not/barely being able to even clear the second vines, they just take patience.

No real strategy help here, I'm not that good-try to make it thru the vines as quickly as possible, if you want, avoid the Gators altogether(I try to kill as many as I can in the first level tho).

On the first level of Rolling Stones(Tm)(lol), press forward constantly-jump the little rocks about as soon as they come on screen, you'll clear them-as soon as a big rock comes out, drop back a few steps and duck, you'll get the timing pretty quick.

Second level of rocks, just press forward and jump, I think I cleared all the rocks, even the big ones, jumping as soon as I saw them(it's a tad faster).

One got me on the third level(a big rock), but it could have been human error(vid will upload elsewhere, mebbe I'll notice).

Jump the Warrior dude about as soon as he jumps towards you, that's really one of the easier parts of the game.

Anyway, OK, I don't see me trying to improve this unless I miraculously figure out the 199,900 on Pitfall 2(I mean, my Friends have shown me, gladly, but seeing and doing ain't the same...), but doubling my PB was/is very unexpected, I'll take it!!!

Evidently, I'm all alone out here in the Wilderness right now...

Congo Bongo-38,200

My, my!

Haha, I swear, I just wanted to "get these out of the way", knowing how much time I am going to have to invest in Pitfall 2, did NOT expect to come up with satisfactory scores on both so quickly, but by gosh I'll take it!!!

My Congo Bongo cart came from ZilchSr a while back, a gift, as did my Star Trek from last week, super proud/appreciative to have both-the Star Trek LOOKS awesome, and is an awesome game. The Congo Bongo... Well, it LOOKS pretty awesome, but this game...

I'm very not good at subjectivity towards "bad" games, but this may be the worst programmed game of all time, I think shovelware producers cared more about their product than Sega did about this one, unfortunately...

Not Atari footage, but an oddball funny commercial

Did I not just get done saying I had a satisfactory score?

*Poof*, now it's a stinky score.

Darn You!

Looks like we're doing the jungle boogie.  I'll play Pitfall 2 when I have more time (I have to go to work soon.)

 

Congo Bongo: 5,660 (The perspective on the second stage throws me off.)

 

Jungle Hunt: 22,310 (I'm sure I can do better once I'm more warmed up.)

Curious, as to the scoring on Pitfall 2-keeping in mind, I'm 1/2 outright idiot, I may be remembering this wrong, I'm sure someone will chime in, and I probably should have tried to play the game to check my memory, but...no.

Anyway.

I *think* you actually have to beat the game to achieve a score?

 

Like, I think if you "die", you go back to the last checkpoint, so if one can't figure out how to finish the game, they never actually get a score.

 

So is completing the game a requisite, or can folks sub their "highest achieved total", if that makes sense?

 

I *hope* it's a moot point for me, but again, I have "Patch Scores" on every Activision game I feel I am capable of, and it's MOST of them.

But I've never completed this game, haha, not even sure I can.

 

You also got me and ToiletTunes in the wrong order on Congo Bongo, NBD, I'm sure you'd have noticed it eventually.

You start out with 4,000 points. You gain 5,000 for gold bars, and 10K,15K,20K for the rat, Quickclaw, the girl, and the Raja Diamond. You lose points when you get hit commensurate with how far you are away from your last rally point (crosses). It is always possible, however, to get down to zero points if you keep getting hit and run out of gold bars and special items to get. With that being said, you'll always end up with at least 10,000 if Quickclaw is the last thing you grab, because the game ends once you grab him and he gives you 10,000. Beating the game is not hard at all. Just keep going until you get all four special items.

Bite me.

Just finished watching your vid, strokes and folks I guess, but remembering where to go, and the skill to avoid the bats/buzzards...

GOATS eat what they want, when they want, can digest any darned thing, I think you might be overlooking that.

Congo Bongo does stuff with 3 dimensions that gets me all twisted on this system. And did I just set that gorilla on fire?! I also keep thinking if that commercial- hey, stop monkeying around 😛

 

Congo Bongo - 17,840

Lining up those alligator kills in Jungle Hunt gives me trouble on every system I play this on. Can’t seem to jump the cannibal yet. This one on Atari 8bit computers is *chef’s kiss*

 

Jungle Hunt - 6,300

Oh man, Pitfall II is competing with Circus Convoy this week for my time. Submitting a score to get on the board and to follow up on Rog’s comment- will a score only count if we finish the game, or can we snap a pic whenever we want? Obviously, if you’re not finishing, you’re not gonna score too high, but just curious if this is legit. 

 

Pitfall II - 48,580

If it were to be put up for a vote, I have no problem with "peak score" being the score to submit.

Pitfall 2-166565!!!

Holy Smokes, I beat Pitfall 2, finally earned one of my few "elusive" patches, haha, friggin YAY!!!

Thanks for the help, Garrett, and I suppose you are right, after enough time it's NOT terribly hard to beat, but some of the stuff really requires some finesse, the frogs and buzzards are tough to figure out, and the bats are kinda tough even when you DO figure them out.

Almost certain I'll try to do this a bit better, not sure "perfect" is on my horizon, if I do it'll prolly obligate me, in my mind, to do it on Pitfall!(1) as well, and I just don't wanna.

For what it's worth as a relative newbie, I'd agree with this. We have a lot of players at different levels, and insisting on people finishing the game could make submitting a score inaccessible for many. I'd personally much rather have as wide a participation on the scoreboard as possible, rather than taking a "purist" approach and effectively locking people out

And here's an actual score for pitfall 2. I'd completed the game before, but this is an improvement on my previous best.

 

I'll see if I can improve further over the next couple of weeks (this one is a real favourite of mine so I will definitely be playing again), but I suspect perfection is likely to be beyond me 😭
