Played awhile today. Fun game but man do I suck.

Patch criteria is 20,000 points.

I'll get there.

Embarrassed to say I've never played played Pitfall II. I do own it, but it's a Tandy floppy disk - not the most convenient thing to boot up and play. I should just get the Atari cart.

I feel I'm one of the few people who enjoyed Super Pitfall.

The Mayan Adventure always looked a bit janky to me so I never played it.

For some reason I get bored of Pitfall 2 a lot faster than the original. Maybe because the freedom to explore makes it feel more aimless. Sometimes less is more I guess.

Played some of this today. I'm a Pitfall! virgin and wasn't really expecting much. Ended up having loads of fun, really addictive kind of game. Got a high score of 48,000 after many attempts. Was aiming for 50,000 but got cocky jumping for a rope and ended up in a crocodiles mouth. Simple but so satisfying. Unlocked the patch as well.

Played it on the Activision Anthology on PS2. It comes with a cool licensed soundtrack. Pitfall Harry runs exactly to the beat of Twisted Sister.

I love Pitfall! and Pitfall II! Fired up my Wii and the Wii2600 emulator for a game. Like riding a bike...

I'm so glad you played Pitfall! for the first time to participate in Together Retro. You rock.

I've been slacking since rebuying a PS4 last week but have to say this was a cool month, my ps1 is boxed up atm and Pitfall on the Xbox I'm gonna need a walkthrough. All in all glad I played some and added a few great games to my permanent collection!

Pitfall is one of those games there's not much to talk about but is a classic series everyone interested in retro platforming should give it a chance.
