Once you get past all of these flaws, though, it's kind of a fun game. You can spend a lot of time exploring, and it does grow on you after a while. It's really only one of those games that you play to kill some time. Pitfall has since moved beyond this, like Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure (SNES, Genesis, Sega CD) and the upcoming Pitfall 3D: Beyond The Jungle (PlayStation), which look like the true descendants of Pitfall, and not too many people even remember Super Pitfall anymore. The lost chapter in Pitfall history is destined to stay lost, I believe.
Em um labirinto infestado por aranhas, escorpiões e outros seres perigosos, o herói deve encontrar e libertar sua sobrinha, que está petrificada. Para isso, é necessário achar antes o antídoto.

When creating a sequel to or upgrading a great game, designers should keep one thing in mind: the game needs to be at least half as good as its inspiration. Pitfall is one of the best Atari 2600 games; Super Pitfall is one of the the worst NES games. Enough said!

In an attempt to resurrect its biggest hit, Activision gave Pitfall Harry a Nintendo makeover for this ill-advised "update". Sadly, the only thing Super Pitfall accomplished was to make people want to play the original Pitfall (Atari 2600, 1982). In this version Harry is short and pudgy with a bright blue outfit. Initially the scenery consists of ruins and pyramids, but it soon degenerates into a dreadful maze of generic underground platforms. The waterfalls that looked so inviting in Pitfall 2 look like blinking blue blobs in this game. The jumping controls are dreadful, and the collision detection is utterly horrendous! You're armed with a gun, but too often your shots pass right through their intended targets! Cheap hits and bad background music apply the finishing touches to this disappointing debacle.

To sum up, "AAAARRRRGGGGHHHH!!!". That's about all I can say! Just WRITING about this filth depresses me more than any T*HQ game ever could, and as such, gets my vote for one of the top three worst games ever for this system. I can say no more.
