Pitfall is now available on iOS. However, it’s not the game you think.
The game, developed by The Blast Furnace, has Pitfall Harry constantly running forward as he avoids different traps in the world. Sound familiar? In fact, the main differences from this and Temple Run is the graphics and camera angles.
“The original Pitfall! on the Atari 2600 pioneered the action-platform/runner genre,” said Gordon Hall. “We loved Pitfall! then-along with millions of gamers around the world-and we still love it now. In fact, it was the game that inspired quite a few of us to seek a career in game development. This new incarnation delivers a best-in-class experience of the game for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The team has kept the elements that made the original so much fun to play, and merged them with a cool, retro HD art style, updated controls and play mechanics to keep both old-school fans and newcomers happy. We’re really excited to kick off Pitfall!’s 30th birthday by rebooting the franchise for the mobile audience.”
The game is available to purchase now at the App Store.
