- TRIVIA -
Released in February 1985 in Japan.
Reprogrammed and released by Sega in 1985, this arcade game is based on two games (Pitfall! and Pitfall! 2) originally created and designed by David Crane for Activision on the Atari 2600. David Crane was one of the most highly awarded video game designers in the world. David Crane was also one of the founders of Activision in 1979 (the first ever software house which developed games for third party hardware).
An official Pitfall! game-board based on the video game was released in 1983 by MB (Milton Bradley), licensed from Activision.
The 'Pitfall' series also spawned a cartoon series : Ruby-Spears Productions. Produced By Joe Ruby, Ken Spears. Originally aired September 17, 1983 as part of 'Saturday Supercade' on CBS.
- TIPS AND TRICKS -
Each level has a hidden gold treasure. Here's how to get them.
Level 1: in each of the 4 screens where stuff falls from the trees, wait a few seconds and a bag of $ will fall too. If you collect those 4 bags, a gold statue of Harry (worth one extra life) appears at the level end, under the rock statue that spits fireballs.
Level 2: if you get an ice crystal when the timer is exactly at 3:00, all the bats become golden for 15 seconds and can be collected safely for 1,000 points each. This can be done multiple times.
Level 3: if you get all the gold bars of the stage (10 stacks), a gold cup worth 100,000 points appears at the level end. Jump over the key to reach it.
Level 4: if you got every gold treasure in the previous levels, a gold clock appears in a set point halfway the stage. It's the most precious treasure, as it gives 1,000,000 points, one extra life and 5 additional minutes.
