I grew up with the gaming consoles. Atari, Activision and Coleco. When I found out that Pitfall was updated for the iPad, I just had to have it.
The new version of Pitfall has a bit more resolution from the 8-bit game of 1982. The game is like Temple Run - Except there are more camera angles to it. Instead of watching 3rd person from behind, there are scenes where you are seeing Pitfall Harry from the side, and various side views.
The controls are: swipe up to jump, down to slide, left and right to turn, and tap to crack the whip. If you tilt the iPad, you can collect coins as you go. The best part about this game, though, is the play is in landscape mode (as opposed to Temple Run's Portrait). With my iPad in the ZAGGFolio, I can set it on my lap, then tilt using my legs. That makes a big difference in gameplay.
As you progress, you pass checkmarks. If you crash, you can use tokens to restart at checkpoints. You can earn tokens, or purchase them through in-app.
A great new version of the classic game. It is available for all iOS devices and is only .99 cents.
