Pitfall!, für das Atari VCS und Intellivision ja seit langem auf dem Markt, fordert nun auch Coleco-Besitzer in system-adäquater Ausstattung, wobei sich inhaltlich nichts geändert hat.
The Video Game Critic
This is basically the same game as the classic Atari 2600 version, a few subtle differences aside. First of all, the sound effects are slightly improved. The trees and bushes in the background are more detailed, but the treasures actually look worse (what the heck IS that thing??). But the most noticeable change is Pitfall Harry himself! He definitely looks "thicker" in this version. Apparently he got lazy after his Atari success and let himself go a little. I'm not saying that the guy is overweight, but he's picked up at least 20 pounds! Otherwise, the game plays like every other version of Pitfall. Too bad they couldn't improve upon the graphics for this Colecovision edition. Even the scorpion looks exactly the same.
