Within the jungle ruins of the ancient Maya, your father has been kidnapped. But this isn't just any old dad. He's Pitfall Harry, star of such earlier video games as Pitfall! for Atari 2600 and Super Pitfall for the NES. As Harry Jr., only you can free your old man from the clutches of the evil Zakelua in Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure.
In order to be successful, you'll have to run, jump, and fight your way through 13 levels of action. Hindering your progress will be angry monkeys, hawks, gargoyles, snakes, ghosts, skeletons, tricky jumps and more. To help you stay alive, you've got your trusty whip and special weapons such as sling stones, Mayan boomerangs and Exploding Stones of Pacal. Certain levels will even call for you to work your way through a mine shaft aboard a mine car.
Hidden within the game is the classic Atari 2600 version of Pitfall!. So you can even play the original game starring the person you are trying to save in Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure. ~ Christopher Michael Baker, All Game Guide
