It could be argued that as much as any other title, the original Pitfall for the Atari 2600 established the entire genre of "platform" adventure games. Through the years, protagonist Pitfall Harry changed with the times, periodically featured in new adventures as technology developed and consoles evolved. The intrepid explorer charts new territory once again with this release of Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure, a launch title for Nintendo's 32-bit Game Boy Advance handheld system.
Based on the original Pitfall: Mayan Adventure which was released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1994, this game actually features Pitfall Harry's son, Harry Jr., in the starring role. Harry Jr. has inherited his father's amazing agility and love of adventure, though the younger Harry exhibits a style of bravado that is all his own. Players guide the young explorer through multiple levels, collecting treasure and power-ups as he makes his way through the heart of the jungle on a quest to rescue his famous father from the powerful and mysterious warrior spirit. ~ T.J.
