Posted a new SG-1000 game review! It's a bit of a trainwreck, but Pitfall 2 fans will probably enjoy a new challenge.

Great to see more SG-1000 reviews! However, isn't this game based on Sega's Pitfall II arcade game, rather than a direct port of Activision's home console version? I think that explains the "remixed" rooms, and probably bears mentioning in the review.

Good call Golden. I didn't even realize there was an arcade version but there is. It looks pretty sorry compared to the 2600 version though. Odd that the home version is better than a coin op.

Yep, this is definitely a port of Pitfall 2 the arcade game.

I played the real machine a couple years back and had some fun with it.

I'd like to see a modern port of that arcade game, perhaps on a Pitfall! compilation disk, with the 1st and 2nd 2600 games.

I thought you were gonna modify the review to note this was a conversion of the arcade version of Pitfall 2 instead of the Atari 2600 version?
