Remember how revolutionary PItfall was back in 1982? Well, even if you don't remember, let alone live in the times, Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure is a great action game that may please certain fans, depending on whether they were looking for something faithful or not.

You play as Pitfall Harry Jr., who sets out to look for his dad through ancient buildings and jungles. This isn't any Pitfall game, though. It is an action game with throwing small objects (rocks?) and bombs, and whipping your foes as you go find an exit that leads to the next level. This calls for awesome battles with bosses and a solid platforming experience.

The first level has you go through a jungle. The enemies here are just animals that you may normally see. You can bounce on spider webs like a trampoline, and you can also swing on vines (like original Pitfall). The boss is a tiger, but it can't be killed easily. You gotta throw some bombs and shoot at it. What's annoying here is how you must jump over its pattern as it dashes across the screen. If you jump too early or late, you'd be knocked down on the ground (Not saying you'd lose all your health that fast).

That's one thing to think about this game. There are parts where some things can be difficult to jump over, such as that one giant boulder in a later pyramid level. You have to jump straight over it. There are also some things that you must figure out by toying around with the nearest buttons and switches you find.

In the third level, there is a hidden area where you can play the original Pitfall game that was originally released on the Atari 2600! This really adds great appeal to nostalgia fans. The game is emulated perfectly, without any flaws or glitches whatsoever.

Graphics are excellent for a super nintendo game. Challenging at first, since you are unable to save a game if you have quit. But overall, it's pretty good.

i just bought it for snes and it is such a reminder of the mid 90's for me back when i used to play it on my now-stepfather's former-genesis hahah it was so fun back in 96 when i was 4-5 and its just as fun to me today as it was then. it just brings up memories of me trying to time my characters jumps to jump over objects/pits and him swinging a rope or something like that. mannn if you have the money and the system, get THIS game, it truely ROCKS HARRRDDDD!!!!

p.s. for anyone confused by the phrase "now-stepfather's former-genesis", by "now-stepfather" i meant that he is my stepfather of almost 12 years but at the time he was my moms boyfriend and by "former-genesis" i meant that he had a Sega Genesis but he has not had on in about 14 or so years

Really fun game! Mine arrived in very good condition and plays perfectly! It is way ahead of the original pitfall game for NES, for sure. I played a demo of the PC version of this game (on one of those compilation "shareware" CDs) and liked it even though the graphics were kinda choppy. This plays much smoother than the PC version. As with most of the less-popular titles; I can see why some people don't like it. Run around, jump and collect weapons and treasures, fight wildlife-type enemies; that's it. Seems kind of like the Indiana Jones games (never played them). Still a fun challenging game. Your character jumps in a more realistic way and the animation is all somewhat playful and silly.

well what can i say? this game is in the Pitt's ehehe
you will be swallowed up if you hit the pit and pit out of luck when you do. other wise this game is ol skool and it still rocks and still makes want to snatch the cord out of the controller when you get sunk. so its a classic.
