EDI­TOR’S CHOICE Pit­fall!

Retro Gamer - - A MOMENT WITH -

David Crane’s mas­ter­work is ev­ery­thing that we love about Atari 2600 games – a sim­ple con­cept that’s easy to pick up and play, a good chal­lenge and highly re­playable. How­ever, thanks to the pro­gram­mer’s tech­ni­cal mas­tery, it’s also very at­trac­tive with a nice jun­gle en­vi­ron­ment and a Tarzan-style ditty that plays when swing­ing from a rope.

The de­sign makes up for the sys­tem’s limited re­sources by stitch­ing a small num­ber of mini-chal­lenges to­gether in var­i­ous com­bi­na­tions to make a large va­ri­ety of unique screens. There are plenty of copies out there, so there’s no ex­cuse not to have it in your col­lec­tion.
