Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure Activision Inc. 1995

The first platform game designed specifically for Windows 95, this is an excellent game that updates the addictive gameplay of Atari's Pitfall! to modern hardware. The plot even pays homage to the original: Pitfall!'s hero Harry, after many years of adventuring, was imprisoned by an evil spirit during his recent foray into the Mayan jungles. As his son, Pitfall Harry Jr., you must swing on vines, hop over pits and leap over crocodile heads in classic Pitfall! tradition, as well as bungee-jump, boomerang, and mine-car your way to rescue your Dad. The Mayan Adventure not only retains the excellent gameplay of an Atari classic, but also manages to enhance it several magnitudes higher. Lush graphics and excellent soundtrack grab you immediately, and the frantic action begins as soon as the intro is over. Several minutes of classic Pitfall! action, i.e. jumping over deadly pits and on alligators, soon give way to many new, pleasant surprises. There are many things to hang or lean on, a fast mine car to ride, and many other fun sequences. The enemies are much tougher this time around, and you will need to learn different tactics for different enemies. The game even rewards your explorer spirit by way of many hidden levels and secrets. As a bonus, "oldskool" Pitfall! fans can play the original emulated Atari 2600 Pitfall!, which is hidden within one secret level in the game. With excellent graphics and sound, numerous hidden surprises, and rock-solid gameplay, it's a proud and worthy sequel to Atari classic. The sheer amount of levels, 13 in all, will keep you bleary-eyed late into the night - especially since you get no passwords and no possibility to save the game. If you love Disney's cartoon games such as Aladdin, this is simply a must-have, even with some frustratingly difficult levels and no save games.
