>I find it hilarious how nobody can figure out what the animal on the first screen is.  For the longest time I thought it was a monkey.  Then I read that is was a cat.  And now I see somebody thought it was a dog.


None of you guys watched Saturday Supercade...maybe it was before your time...cause the characters are based on the Pitfall cartoon.

Happy 35th Birthday to Pitfall!

Who can see an image like that and not hear the Tarzan sound?
Pitfall released April 20th, 1982. Also, if you look at the cartridge face art, its subtitled "Pitfall Harry's Jungle Adventure". I wonder if there could have been "Pitfall Harry's New York Adventure" where he meets four turtle warriors in the sewer or something. Its also interesting that there was the Activision box art (which says Atari Video Computer System) and the Atari branded boxart (which doesn't seem to say Activision on it, and says 2600)

In celebration, I played a port on the Ti99. I died. A lot. Well, such is the life of a jungle adventurer.
