This week a brand new game join the line up of Classic Mania Games: Retro Pitfall Challenge. It delivers to all retro-gaming fanatic a game with the same feeling of the classic Pitfall from which take inspiration. With its unique and difficult gameplay together with a fancy vintage graphic design it’s absolutely worth of your attention.
Playing Pitfall, the 30th anniversary remake of the early Atari favorite (I can still hear that music that plays when you successfully jump over a pit of crocodiles) made me actually smile. So many of the games I have recently reviewed for this site have forgotten to be simple and fun.
Activision has brought back a game that many people loved to play back in the day on their Atari 2600 console systems and that game is Pitfall!. However, this new release of Pitfall! is actually a re-imagined version and instead of swinging over gaps in the ground, finding treasure and inevitably dieing a lot, this version is a 3D endless runner.
