Oo-er, that's great. I remember playing this on a friend's Atari, and I was completely immersed in this game. Thanks for the link, Ron! Err. Dizzy I meant

Edit: Gah, it seems jmmijo knows Ron XXL as well. There goes my inside (no pun intended) joke.

If Dizzy had used an avatar of say, Marilyn Chambers or perhaps even John "the Wad" Holmes, I may not have recognized them

Yeah, getting back to Pitfall

it's a shame most people don't know Pitfall 2... that game is probably the best Atari2600 game ever. It had many 'news' in gaming.. the music changes depending on the situation, the way the game isn't divided in stages, the action is always changing (One time you are swiming, the other you are flying in a balloon) ... and they fitted this all in just 10 kb...

I have to agree.... Pitfall II was one of the best games I've played. We should post it in that best platform game thread

Eek Pitfall2

I never even knew there was a Pitfall II...

I can remember getting hopelessly addicted to the original Pitfall on my friends Atari...that along with that "shooting at spaceships" game, and Enduro.

Pitfall 2.
I remember playing the C64 version when I was young. At the beginning me & a mate both tried to jump a mouse on the bottom half of the 2nd screen, so we could get to a Wolf looking creature, but of course you could never manage it!
I just recall usually reaching to an area just after the balloons but I either became stuck or bored so never knew if it had an "end" or not.

Yeah, it has an ending..

You have to find Harry's daughter, then find an antidote for her, then find her little "cat" ... (it's the "Wolf" creature you saw in the 1st screen) ..

That's something I found great, the game ends in the 1st screen!
