Pitfall! game for Atari 2600 description
The player must maneuver a character through a maze-like jungle in an attempt to recover 32 treasures in a 20-minute time period.
Along the way, he must negotiate numerous hazards, including pits, quicksand, rolling logs, fire, rattlesnakes, scorpions, and crocodiles. Harry may jump over or otherwise avoid these obstacles by climbing, running, or swinging on vines.
Rolling logs and falling down a hole will deduct points, and scorpions, alligators, snakes, bottomless pits, swamps, and fires will cause Harry to lose a life.
