The Official Nintendo Player's Guide (1987) - NES:
ENDLESS CAVES OF ADVENTURE
The priceless Raj diamond is lost in a vast subterannean dwelling high in the Andes. Pitfall Harry embarks on an impossible mission to recover the diamond from the dark, damp depths below and soon discovers that he must also rescue his beloved niece, Rhonda, and feline friend, Quickclaw the Lion, who are trapped somewhere in the cave's endless passages. Can it be done?
GAME PLAY: You are the great adventurer Pitfall Harry but these caves are so extensive--over 270 screens--that you struggle to learn your way around. You keep your pistol ready because the maze is infested with poisonous frogs, bats, snakes, scorpions, tarantulas, cavemen, lava pits, and other evil creatures. Secret passageways and hidden treasures are to be found. But where? You find your nice, Rhonda, but are horrified to learn that she has been turned to stone. What can be done? And how will you ever get out of this one alive?
