Title and loading screen
I need to jump the fireballs on my way to the bell rope.
I need to make like Pitfall Harry.

Later, I'll need to jump these guys while still avoiding jumping into the fireball.
I need to jump the pits and arrows.

Instructions and High score page.
Nothing to do here but jump over a ball and ring the bell.
Level two. Tricky one this. Excellent timing is needed to catch the rope and jump off again.
Level three. An easier level with only ramparts to jump across and the occasional ball to jump over.
Level five. Sentries who poke their spears up at you and another missile to avoid.
The final level completed and Esmeralda has been rescued.
Start of first level -- get to the bell-pull at the far right
Jack be nimble, Jack be quick -- Jack jump over those jerks' sharp sticks
Successfully clearing those ramparts would be easier if someone wasn't firing arrows at you
A dose of Pitfall vine-swinging always does a game good. (Note my advance in the bottom-left map.)
The end is in sight!
Overcome with romantic emotion, he decides to do it all over again
